Our Trip to the Little Red Schoolhouse

I have been bugging Mike to take me to the Little Red Schoolhouse for a while now. I hadn’t been there in such a long time that I was just dying to go. My Grandmother used to take me there all the time when I was a child.

The Little Red Schoolhouse nature center is only about 15 minutes from our house. It is such a nice place to go for walks or take the family. It’s free, educational, and fun – what more could you ask for?!

I didn’t realize that they are closed on Fridays, so we did not get to enter the building, but we walked the 1 2/3 mile trail and got some nice pictures.

I was surprised to see that they have a large, new building. I only remembered the actual red schoolhouse that is pictured above.

As soon as we reached the pond a flood of memories hit me. It was so nostalgic and I felt so happy and a little sad at the same time.

This also explains my love of weeping willow trees! This must have been where I first fell in love with them.

We had the perfect day. It was a little cool, but there was not a cloud in the sky. Everything looked so bright and beautiful!

We kept hearing a woodpecker… Then I looked up and saw his possible home!

Mike thought this tree looked like a grumpy old man!

I love these pink flowers!

There were a few owls outside in cages. So neat!

It was a very nice, little nature walk and we will definitely be back soon!

Do you have a nice, local place that’s pretty to visit?
