Experiences are the Best Gifts
Last Christmas my friend Jena and I decided that her kids really didn’t need any more toys so we took them to the Crayola factory. Almost all of my trips growing up were educational, so I’ve always appreciated trips that are both educational and fun They were so excited with all the activities and bragged about it at church for weeks afterwards. This year they asked to return to Crayola but I had taken our niece to Turkey Hill Experience and knew they would enjoy it as well. Our school district is very rural so we have days off for deer hunting, which allowed us to plan our trip for a Monday and avoid a lot of crowds.

|I know hanging out with mom’s friend |
won’t always be fun, so I’ll soak
up all these moments I can!
|On this game they have to try to destroy |
the bad bacteria and keep the good.
|Inside this microscope they choose to accept |
or reject a batch of milk based on the bacteria found.
|They got to “milk a cow.” There was even some liquid.|

|As a bonus, I got to spend the day with one of my oldest and dearest friends.|
|There we so many pretty trees.|
|Each tree had a theme.|
