Maine Wildlife Park 2016

This is one of our favorite places to visit. They do a great job with field trips and we always have a good time. It's a lot of fun to go and see what's new each year. For the last three years I have put together a large field trip (100+ people). We do a class on a particular animal and then are free to explore the park. We spent a gorgeous day here last Thursday. Balmy weather. No bugs. Sunny! A perfect way to finish up our school year. 

Our class was on loons. The educator was excellent and did a great job keeping the kids engaged. I think my favorite part was the "loon-sicle" that she used to show how loons eat fish.

After our class we had a quick picnic lunch and then headed out to explore. There were a number of families there from our church homeschool co-op and we explored together.

Since we've been going so many years, I don't take as many photos anymore. I really enjoyed the company and the kids appeared to have a really wonderful time.

I did manage to get what will likely be my last shot ever of my youngest on the "iron turtle." He very reluctantly posed for me.

Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
