Boyce Thompson Arboretum

This Monday was the field trip for our co-op this month and we went to  Boyce Thompson Arboretum  It was a Gorgeous day and Anastasia took some Gorgeous pictures  (be sure and check out our AB See Meme for the letter G).    The kids were divided into two groups for the tours.  The older kids did the Deserts of the World Tour while the younger kids did the Plants 101 tour.  I went on the tour with the younger ones and Anastasia went with the bigger kids so I don't have very many pictures with her in it.  But she took some great pictures all on her own.


Our tour guide did a great job with the kids.  He taught them  a lot.

Leaf Rubbings

We loved these huge trees.  We don't see those everyday around here.

A family used to actually live here.

The "pizza" plant.  We walked through an herb garden and the kids could rub the leaves between their fingers and smell.  This one was oregeno the kids all called it the pizza plant.

After lunch this was the kids favorite spot of course.

Boys, Rocks and water need I say more?

The end result!
