Labor Day Weekend - Columbia, SC

Over the long weekend, we went visited some friends that are stationed at Ft. Gordon, GA (about 2.5 hours from here). They have 2 girls (4 and 2) so it's always fun for Katelyn. And they have MORE than enough toys for everyone!! Katelyn was very excited to see Makara and Kinley and is still talking about them. We spent Friday night at their house and then headed to Columbia, SC on Saturday morning. It's only an hour drive from their house.

Saturday we went to the Riverbanks Zoo and Sunday we hit up the Edventure Children's Museum before heading home. Everyone had a great weekend as we always do with them, but we were ready to be back home in our own beds!

Katelyn was infatuated with the giraffes and kept asking to go back and see them the entire time we were at the zoo! When we got to the giraffe exhibit, they were all out of food, so the girls couldn't feed them. :(

front view! Look at all the cute little girls!

She loved the aquariums and looking for Nemo

At Edventure Children's Museum
The firetruck was her favorite and it took many attempts to pry her away from it to move on to other things. And then she kept asking to go back!

Driving a "bug"

And she even slid down the pole!

The butterfly garden.
She was pretty excited finding all the butterflies.

Maybe she'll get a little brother so he can have a peddle tractor! haha

Driving the right color of tractor!

Milking Bess!
She squeezed enough to get the "water" to come out

Grocery shopping

checking out!

This boy was over 2 stories tall and on the back side you can climb inside him and "explore" his organs. Katelyn liked the slide the best. The slide is actually the digestive tract. She got "spit" out many times because she thought the slide was pretty fun!
