Western North Carolina Nature Center

With our Greenville Zoo membership, we also get into other zoos around the country for free or half off.  It makes a good deal even better!  Since the kids and I had off for President’s Day, we all decided to check out the Western NC Nature Center in Asheville.   The Nature Center has a lot of rescued animals there such as owls, wolves, and coyotes.  All of the animals there are native to the region.  It’s a really beautiful setting with very natural environments for all the animals.  We had a great time and got to go to Salsa’s afterwards for lunch. Yum!


January Snow

It’s now March and the weather seems like it’s leaning towards Spring, but it’s always possible to get that weird late snow in South Carolina.  We had the best snow in ages back in January here.  It took us out of school for an entire week which the kids loved of course.  Usually when we get winter weather, it mainly consists of ice, but we had more than enough snow to play in this time.  The park provided some great sledding hills and the kids had a blast!
