Mayfield Dairy

On Tuesday Matt and I were able to join Taylor and a couple other 3rd grade classes on a trip to the Mayfield Dairy. This was her last field trip this year though they still have some fun things planned like a end of the year party and Fun Day (this is similar to Track and Field Day). We didn't go as chaperons but meet the classes there, this is the best way to go on field trips I believe :) She was so tired by the end of the day and her legs were hurting pretty bad from all the walking around but she smiled the whole day. After the tour (and free ice cream at then end) the classes loaded back onto the buses and headed to eat lunch at Cracker Barrel. We got separated from the buses and got back on the interstate, headed the wrong direction! By the time we realized that we had gone the wrong way we knew it was too late to turn around and find them. Taylor wasn't too upset that we didn't eat lunch with her, she actually laughed that we went the wrong way. However, Matt and I were able to enjoy a nice quiet lunch together at Chili's :) Here are some pictures from the Dairy (there aren't alot b/c you can't take pictures inside the dairy). It was actually a neat thing to see. We say not only Mayfield milk being processed but also Great Value/Walmart milk. They are processed in different ways. It was neat to see.

Looks like fun! I'm glad you got to go on the field trip with Taylor. I'm sure she appreciated you being there for her. I'm also glad she's feel good enough now to be enjoying those field trips with her friends. :)

How fun!! Kass and Kam are supposed to be having their field day today... in the rain, lightening and thunder. Something tells me they are going to come home very disappointed!

Fun! We've tried to go on the Mayfield Dairy tour on two separate occasions, but have missed it both times...time confusion, I guess!

That's interesting that they process the two different brands of milk in different ways...I'm very curious. I'll have to ask you more about that in person!

Looks like you had fun. I took a class of first graders there back when I was teaching and we had lots of fun. Glad you and Matt both got to go with Taylor. I can't wait to go on a field trip with one of my girls.

So glad to see Taylor is doing better! Sounds like a fun field trip. I took a trip once to the Purity Dairy plant here in Nashville. (Purity is like our Mayfield.) Love the ice cream!
