Madalyn's Field Trip to Edventure

I got to go with Madalyn's class and the other kindergarten classes to Edventure today. We had not been to Edventure before but we had been to the children's museum downtown Greenville when Madalyn was 3.We had a great time and it wasn't crowded at all. We played at Edventure for two hours, then ate our lunch in the park, and on the way home the teachers stopped at Krispy Creme to get dough nuts for everyone. I was glad that I was able to go with her.

Spring Break Day 3: Pine Mountain

Madalyn was so excited to get to go stay in a hotel. The last time we stayed in a hotel she was three years old. We have been on vacation and stayed in the camper, condos, and houses, but she had no memory of  a hotel. She really enjoyed it too and didn't want to leave. Which coming in everyday to having your room and bathroom cleaned up for you, I didn't blame her. I wish I could come home every day to that too. :0) Friday, we just explored Pine Mountain some more and found a fun park like place for the girls to play, checked out this placed called Callaway Gardens, and just enjoyed being together. It was nice to get away after all that has happened to us since Jan. 21st. We all needed a break. We came home Saturday afternoon.

So excited to sleep in a big bed!


Watching a movie in their snuggietails enjoying life. :0)


The maid saw us leaving one morning and when we came back she had left a rubber duck for the girls to have. I thought that was thoughtful.


First Stop: Butts Mill Farms Fun Park

Madalyn finally got to play put-put. She asked to play one time when we were at the beach when she was 4 and my mom told her she had to be 6 to play. Well, Madalyn hasn't forgotten that and now that she is 6, she has been asking and asking to play. So she finally got to play but I think she realized it was as easy as she thought it would be.



Kevin was attempting to show Alexis how to play but that was a lost cause at 2 years old!



It was a pretty place.


You could swing with your toes in the water.



We found LOTS of tadpoles. 





They both had a great time playing on this playground.


They got to pan for gemstones and fossils.




Second Stop: Callaway Gardens

They had a butterfly garden and many other gardens to visit.



This was the hatching place for the butterflies.





The butterflies were flying all around and they didn't want to land or be still long. It was hard to get pictures of them.








I really wanted to go inside this chapel because of all the stain glass windows. I saw pictures on the Internet but they were having a wedding and we couldn't go inside.
