I took Alex, Avery and A.J. to a homeschool field trip with our charter school. It was at Knott's Berry Farm, which is an amusement park... but it also has an Old West theme and educational tours, which is what we signed up for. We had a two-hour educational tour on Native American history. The kids were very interested. And as it turned out, on tv that very same night there was a showing of Dances With Wolves. I let the kids watch it and they understood a lot of the history in it due to the field trip that day!
At the end of the tour, we were surprised when our guide told us that we could enjoy the rest of the park... no extra charge! The kids were not expecting that. I had told them that we were there for the tour only -- no rides. So this was a real treat!
First we went on the Log Ride!
and next they went on a couple fast rides
It was a fun day! So glad we went :)
