One of my kindergarten students came into class today, excited to tell me about her adventure over Memorial Day weekend. She told me she went to the zoo and saw all sorts of animals. The best part was that she got to “live” in a hotel for two whole days!
We live in the Seattle area, so when I pictured this little girl’s adventure (as she called it), I thought she may have traveled down to Portland or maybe San Diego. Well, I was wrong. Her adventure was right here in our own backyard.
She stayed at a hotel Downtown Seattle and experienced the city like a tourist, including a trip to Woodland Park Zoo. My sister-in-law’s family does the same thing at Christmas time. What a wonderful experience to give your family! It’s an adventure and you don’t even have to drive very far to get there.
