Madoc Field Trip

Today I went with Madoc to the Jacob Ballas children's garden.  It was her first field trip with her class.  The garden was lovely, with so much to see and do.  The children spent the majority of their time at the "Tree House," but Madoc and I decided to have a little adventure.

We found a wonderful man-made waterfall, which happens to be on the way to the toilets.  Nothing like running water to make you pick up the pace!

They had a wonderful pond with fish and turtles, a tree trunk children could climb into, a vegetable garden with a wonderful bean trellace, seats made from old wood, trails that wound around inside the garden - and a maze.  All in all, it was a really nice day.

Madoc even got to roll down a hill for the first time!  She loved it and was covered in grass.  The sun was blazing hot, so by 11:30, the children were all hot, exhausted and ready to go home.
