All homeschool moms out there know that in most cases, we moms are the ones that take the kids on the majority of the field trips. Since they are generally during the week, that's when Dad is at work. But every once in a while, one of those field trips happen where we have a large number of dads. Last year, for our group it was the Wind Turbine Field trip. This year....it was a Behind the Scenes tour of the Mud Hens Minor League Baseball Stadium. It was just one of those fun field trips.
It was a good thing that it was so fun...and so much anticipated, because it was at about 105 degree heat index! Good thing the locker rooms and basement were air conditioned!
Welcome to Fifth Third Field....Home of the Toledo Mud Hens. They are a farm team for the Detroit Tigers. Now that was info that my brother and his family provided for me. The kids were soooo excited (as were Joe and I) that their cousins and Uncle and Aunt got to go on a field trip with us! If you are not familiar with a farm team. They basically train and groom the minor league players for specific teams, in this case the Tigers. They also provide a place for injured Tiger players to recover and not lose out on practice.
What are some places that your groups have visited? We are always looking for ideas.
