WW: Arbor Day Farm {Linky}

I'm going to have to make this 3 posts. This is part 1 of the 3. If you like what you see come back on Wednesday towards the end of the day, and Thursday towards the middle of the day to see more. I'll be sure to comment on your blog each time you comment here.

The weekend before last we went to Nebraska City, where we spent most of our time at the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center.

I heard so many good things about Arbor Day Farm that I wanted to go back. 

We drove 55 minutes to spend some time at Arbor Day Farm.


I'm kind of going backwards because the greenhouse is the last spot we stopped. That's where I lost my camera. I set it down, and didn't realize that it was missing until the next morning. Panic set in. We drove all the way back just to look for it. We couldn't find it at home, in our car, or at the farm. Finally the staff picked up a sign, and there it was! I got it back! YAY! It's exactly where I thought it might be. It works just fine. Thankfully I had it in a case.



Inside the greenhouse they have experimental trees growing all the time.


There's a cute sit down spot by the greenhouse. They hold craft classes at the tables.


There is one main treehouse, then others scattered about on the trails. This is the main one.




 Inside the tree house is a wasp nest someone found, and a working bee hive.



Looking down from the top of the tree house:



This is another treehouse.



They had big huge chairs we could sit in. Mica was cooperating, and Isaak was not.


This reminds me of the 3 little bears for some reason.

 

Travis decided it would be funny to walk around with his shirt up. He walked right by a family with his belly hanging out. I just had to shake my head and laugh.


Have you taken any small road trips this summer? We're not going on an official vacation spot, just small places here and there this year.

How fun! I wish we'd had time to stop when we drove by there on our way out of Nebraska a few years ago.

It's a modern day miracle you got your camera back!

That looks like the kind of place my wife loves. She likes to go where there are lots of plants and flowers and trees. I bet we have been to just about every botanical garden from Virginia to Florida.
