While visiting Athen, Georgia recently, everyone kept telling us to stop at the State Botanical Gardens. I imagined it to be walking around in the heat, looking at flowers and that was about it. Nothing exciting, right. After being told several times we had to visit, we decided it must be worth the trip and you know what... it was. Here is a little of what we experienced in our time there, what we learned, what we would do different, and how we made the most out of our short visit. I hope it helps you when you decide to tour this beautiful corner of the world.
Bear Hollow Zoo is a unique experience in Athens, Georgia. They are home to a variety of wildlife animals that are non-releasable. Non-Releasable means they have encountered life challenges that they could not overcome and have been placed at Bear Hollow Zoo to live out their lives. They may either be residents due to physical or behavioral challenges and they serve as ambassadors for their species to the curious public. The public that visit have the opportunity to observe these animals as they are there to educator visitors about wildlife. Best of all it's FREE to visit.
Do you ever see amazing Pinterest crafts that moms do with their kids and wish it was easy and actually doable? I kept pinning these beautiful seed filled ornament ideas on Pinterest but just could not figure out the best way to do them. First of all, I have the worlds smallest kitchen at the moment (or so it feels). Since downsizing to a camper while we are building our home, I am more interested in less mess, than anything else when it comes to crafts that I can do with my littles.
