Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center

On Friday, March 22nd, we had a field trip to the Bluebonnet Swamp. This was one of our largest turn outs. We had 140 something people (adults and children) on this day.

This picture was taken by a member of our group who is a photographer and had a wide angle lens.  photo IMG_0080_zps5e216c9d.jpg
First, we started off the trip with an introduction to some of the animals that they have on display and got to pet several of them.

Then we were able to walk around and look at the different animals and display cases that they had.

Next we walked on the walking paths through the swamp, but we didn't get to see much because the kids were just interested in getting through it at fast as they could!

Once again, I must give credit to my friend, Candi, who took all of these pictures and save her post for me to use and modify for my blog.  I haven’t been able to take pictures like I used to and some of my children have  been using my camera but the pics aren’t always that good.  I don’t know what I would do with you, Candi!  Thank you!!!
