Unschoolers at Young Living Lavender Farm and the Springville Fish Hatchery

 
 
 A wonderful day with friends~

First stop was the Lavender Farm...  We did this trip years ago with our Project Wild Group (just a different fish hatchery) and it was so fun that I wanted to do it again. I can't believe how much may kids have grown!  Its a blink guys, really.  http://joyfulliberation.blogspot.com/2008/07/project-wild.html

 We had a picnic while waiting for everyone to arrive~
 

 Sweet baby Violet~

 Then it was time to load up on the wagons for a tour of the farm~

 


 Yep, she was happy to "drive"~








 
 



 
 We saw the animals~

 
 Toured the medieval village~
 

 Then we had a distillery tour~
 

They had just finished cooking up a batch of lavender~ 
 
 It had a really strong smell~





 
 We went underground to see where the oil separates from the water~









 And then to the lab to see where they collect the oil for testing~




 Then it was time for lavender ice cream and lemonade~





 The off to play in the old west area~








 







 And the medieval area~

 
















 

 And I had to capture some kids in the lavender~








 
 A beautiful day at the farm~


 Then we were off to the Springville Fish Hatchery to learn about the rainbow trout that they raise and release~
 We got to see the different stages from egg to tiny fish ready to eat food~
 



 

 And then we got to see the fish in their pools waiting to grow~
 



 Of course there was also Pokémon Go!


 



 

 It was quite interesting~
 Such a great life being an unschooler~
