Friday Bun’s class had a field trip to Mission San Juan Bautista, and Cole and I went along to stalk the field trip. The whole time we were getting ready, Cole was pretty confused because to him, “mission” is a verb. So, finally, I said our mission was to go to the mission and we had our very own Laurel and Hardy routine going for a while.
It was a perfect January day and the combination of distance and size of the mission made our adventure very doable. Plus, no loud bus ride!
We might just have to go back there some other time because the kids didn’t have as much time to explore as they’d have liked, and there are some cute places to eat in town to make a day of it. Maybe after a viewing of The Birds, just to make it fun.
For the record, these were the only notable birds we saw there, though. :)
