B is for Blueberry and Butterfly

Back at the end of June, we met up with some of our homeschool friends to pick blueberries and learn about butterflies at a local park.  The park we met at has a splash place, so the kiddos were able to enjoy that, too.  Since it was National Camera Day, they were also able to snap a few shots using the camera.  While we were there, some local firefighters drove up, so we were also able to add in a brief fire truck visit.  To say this was a fun-filled and educational outing would be an understatement…look at everything we were able to do in such a short time.  Smile  Here are some shots of all of the fun…

So, as you can tell, this was a VERY fun time for everyone, and I think the kiddos all learned a good bit, too.  Smile
