We recently had a field trip to a working mill located in a small village near us – Clifton Mill – which also has a beautiful Christmas light display, albeit a tad on the expensive side. This was also a field trip that I didn’t have to plan, so I was able to just sit back and enjoy it without having to worry about checking to make sure everyone showed up – I like those field trips! This was also right up my alley as it’s historical, be sure to read about the history of the Mill by following that link above, and I love history! There is also a restaurant which sells great buffalo burgers and gingerbread (and it’s not Mickey D’s) and thankfully we had great weather for it, not too hot and not too cold so we were able to enjoy the outdoor grounds – but I do admit I was shocked when I tried to purchase 4 postcards and the total came to more than $6 – I was then told it’s $2 per card! What? LOL I bought one and we’ll share it.
Earlier in the month before the Mill field trip, we took a trip to a children’s science museum, known as C.O.S.I (Center of Science and Industry) which was packed – I think there were over 300 school students, which did not make it enjoyable or conducive to being able to see displays so we left but not before we visited Progress:
My oldest doesn’t like to get her picture taken so there were none of her, although I’ll try to get some when we go through the Sherlock exhibit at a later date, if the museum will let me. After we left early I tried calling the Art Museum and also the State History Museum but they also had several school groups, so we decided to grab an early lunch at Spaghetti Warehouse and go home.
