Field Trip Friday--C

Letter C was a Choice letter. There are a Copious number of things that start with letter C! For our field trip, we started at the Capitol building of the Colossal state of Texas. Our Capitol is rather Cool, I think. The exterior Construction is similar to the US Capitol and there is a reCurrant star motif throughout the interior.

I was surprised by how Cheerful the quints were as they Checked over the Capitol. They were Charmed by the squirrels Climbing the trees, and they were Crazy about the Canons. They were Curious about the rotunda and felt Compelled to Climb the Cyclopean staircases to get as high as possible.

Colossal staircases in the Capitol Created Curiosity among the Cute Quints

Though the quints were Courageous as they Caught the view of the rotunda from the top floor, the Considerably spaced Crossbars in the railing Caused me to be Concerned!

The Canon

Countless strangers insisted on being Captured on Camera with the Quints. (OK, not really Countless, but there were a Considerable number!)

After the Capitol, we headed down Congress Ave to see the Cows on Parade.

During our Downtown Circut, we Caught a glimpse of over 20 Cows...this one is Called "Moosical Moosaic"


"Batsy at Twilight"

Halfway through our Cow Circuit on Congress, we stopped to Consume some Chow.

Lunch Consisted of letter C sandwiches, Cheese sticks, Concord grapes (I could be making the Concord part up---I really have no idea what kind they were), and Cookies

On a trip to the water Closet, the quints rode an escalator, for what might have been the first time---they were Crazy about it!

The Concluding stop on our Capitol of Texas adventure was the Big Top Candy Shop.

Candy, Candy, Candy

The Copious amounts of Colorful Candy Captivated the Quints and made it Challenging to Choose what to get!

Conveniently, the Candy shop had five Chairs

From the outside looking in---The Candy shop was a Cool Close to a Considerably Crazy-Fun Day!

PS--Speaking of letter C, the kids Halloween Costumes turned out so CUTE----I'll post some pictures in the next Couple of days!!

Field Trip Friday--P

Last week was "P" week at our house. Of course all my Pretty little Princesses were happy about that! Especially the ones whose favorite colors are Pink and Purple :-)

Pink Letter P Pancakes

Early in the week, my friend, Andrea, brought her Pet Parrot over to Play. The Parrot, named Ruby, was a little Panicked at the sight of so many Playful Preschoolers. But she became more Peaceful when the Petite People fed her some Pine nuts.

Isn't she just Pulchritudinous?

Kyndall and Kaydence were Pleased by the Picturesque Parrot

For Field Trip Friday, we Packed the Preschool Passengers along with our Pals, GG and Tammy Z, into the Plenty-big van and headed to the Pumpkin Patch. Our favorite Pumpkin Patch is the one at Sweet Berry Farms in Marble Falls, which is about 45 minutes away. It has become a Perennial Practice to take Pictures at the Pumpkin Patch every year.

Also Pleasing to the Preschoolers was the Tractor Train, Pulling a Procession of barrel cars. (Notice that they each Picked their Preferred Pigmentation of barrel to ride in)

The Passengers Pose for a Picture with the driver of the Plowing Machine Pretending to be a train. (The angle of the Picture makes it look like he is holding something, but it is actually a Pig made of hay bales in the background)

The farm also had Plentiful flowers for Picking.

Field Trip Friday--B

Last week we learned letter "B". Now, I know I shouldn't choose favorites, but let's face it---some letters of the alphabet are Better than others. There were so many "B" activities that we didn't have time to do them all. We spent the week Bouncing Balls into Buckets, Blowing Bubbles, riding Bikes, going on Bear hunts, Blowing up Balloons, playing with Barbies and Blocks, making Bats, and eating Breakfast food, Bananas, Bagels and Bread with Butter.

For our Field Trip Day, we went to the Big Bounce and then came home to Bake Bread in the shape of Bears.

B pancakes for Breakfast. Rustin is even taking a Bite of his Blue plate.
