A few years ago I volunteered to chaperone Megan and some of her classmates on a school field trip up to the Rosicrucian Museum in San Jose. Well, it was Molly and Nora’s turn last week. Their 6th grade field trip. So, once again I volunteered.

It takes about an hour and a half on the Discovery busses to get there.

Once we get there everyone wanders around a bit while they get things organized and start groups of kids through the tour. We weren’t allowed to take pictures inside the museum, so I snapped a few outside of the kids.

We did the 10:30 tour and afterwards we sat around and ate a nice bag lunch in the sunshine. One of the girls in my group brought a superball along and it wasn’t long before, oops, into the fountain it went.

It was a pretty fun time. The museum has several real mummies, one of only seven known to exist statues of Cleopatra, and a lot of pretty interesting items.

It really is these small, fun times, with the kids that create long happy memories.
