A couple weeks ago Jerel had the week off and we checked off more of our Greenville bucket list. I am amazed that there are still things that we want to do here and just haven't been able to get to them yet. I am telling you- this place is great!
First, we went to ride George the train. I wish that I had taken a better picture but for $3 a ticket you get to ride on this cute little train two times around the track. The boys loved it. We took Nolan's friend Will. We just love him and would let him become a Warren if his Mama would let him. She just had twins (# 4 & 5) so she might not notice for a day or two if he moved in!! :)
Another day we ate at the Runway Cafe. We have a really small downtown airport that the private jets fly in and out of. Recently they opened a fairly good restaurant where you can sit almost out on the runway and watch the planes. I will say- it was a great idea...not such great execution. A nasty storm rolled in while we were there and Nolan FREAKED OUT!!! It's hard when you want your 4 year old to act like a 24 year old! ;) We will go back when the skies are bluer!
However after the nasty storm we headed to TCBY for Waffle Cone Wednesday. Apparently .99 cent ice cream is healing for a frazzled soul!
Then we (ok, Jerel) spent a ton of time hunting down the perfect family truckster. I will admit- I never wanted a van, but it is really nice and oh so easy with the boys! Only 13 more years and I will never drive another one!!
Our other adventure was out to Holly Wild, which is kind of a red neck zoo/safari where there are animals that have been in movies, commercials, and tv shows. The boys, especially Elliott, loved it. As a side note- Elliott LOVES LOVES LOVES animals. Especially farm or safari type animals. As you look through my blog you can always play "what animal does Elliott have in his hand?". There is always one there. Always!
My sweet Nolan didn't actually have a great day. He was a little scared to feed the animals and a yellow jacket flew up his shirt and stung him. But if you ask him he will tell you 1) he had the best time, and 2) he is allergic to bees. He isn't!
That day I left for Atlanta for 3 glorious days with my best friend Kelly. We are able to get together every summer for a weekend and it is such a special time. I think this is the first summer that one of us wasn't either pregnant or just had a baby. I don't have any pictures from the weekend but this is us at my wedding.
And this is all the stuff we bought...
My sweet husband who is the best- kept the boys while I was playing. Thankfully, it was cow appreciation day! He was so brave to dress them up and they had a blast!
All right people- peace out!!!
