A Bus Ride and Gelato

I like simple field trips like the one we went on yesterday.
We started with a city bus ride across town.  That in itself is a great field trip.
Then we walked to a business called Hot Chocolates.  Yes they sell delicious
                           chocolates but they also sell gelato.
At this time of year they offer free mini cones to any class that want to visit. 
This is our first year taking advantage of this offer and since it was a success
                           we will probably go again next year.
We enjoyed sharing books while each family waited their turn to go into the store.
Then it was time to head back to the bus stop to catch the bus back to school.
We had the same bus driver coming and going and he was great.  He took a detour to drop us closer to the store.  Getting back on the bus he was patient to allow the children to pay for their grown up.  And finally at our last stop he parked closer to the school so we didn't have to walk as far.  His thoughtfulness really enhanced our trip.
