Evan's Class Trip to Longwood Gardens

 I joined Evan and his classmates on his trip to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA.

The kids learned all about the life cycle of plants and trees, including this tree, who's leaves are red in the spring and green in the fall.

 All the kids wrapped up a Lima Bean, wrapped it in cotton, had it sprayed with water and put in a little ziploc bag as a souvenir. In a few days the bean should sprout and Evan and I will plant it in the yard.

 L-R Evan, Jackson, Liam, and Connor. They ran around like maniacs in the Topiary Garden.

 Their Kindergarten teacher Miss Windle gets them to stand still for a second to snap a photo.

Me and Connor's dad were in charge of this group. They stop to pose for a cool photo.

This one was all Jackson's idea.

One of the awesome treehouses at Longwood.

No rabbit ears guys! They can't help themselves.

Now it's time for a bumpy bus ride back to school! What a great day they had. Evan said he wants to go back again with all his school friends.
