I love this place, I really do. And it is not just me, the kids love it, too. Nicolas wanted to finish up his leaf project but needed a few more leaves. Blandford was the only place we knew (besides the Heritage Village in Sioux Center which was just a little too far for a day trip) where trees are labeled so you know what kind of leaf you have. We left late morning, hiked trails, picked a few leaves, ate a picnic lunch, and explored the General Store goodies before coming back home. Russ couldn't join us as he was busy being a "movie star." PRTS is making a new promotional/informational video and Russ was asked to participate in the classroom shots and also in interviews. We missed him, but I know we will go back again. The kids are already planning the next trip!
