Campbell's Bridge & Asheville Fun

On Ryan's day off this week we packed in the fun...

Campbell's Covered Bridge is one of Greenville's landmarks that we hadn't seen yet. 

Caroline had fun walking - with assistance - under it! Cars drove through here until 1984!

She's getting so good at walking while holding onto our hands. She'll take a few little steps all on her own but much prefers to be holding onto something! I can't believe she is almost a year old. 

Then we headed to lunch at the Sierra Nevada Taproom outside of Asheville.

We walked through the brewery and were very impressed. It's a big operation!

We drove into Asheville and walked around. One of the neatest things we saw were two artists blowing glass at Lexington Glassworks. The guy was really friendly and explained what he was doing. 

We had such a fun day! Happy Friday!

Funny Faces

Duncan has started sitting up in the Bumbo seat and watching the interactions between him and Caroline make me so very happy. He is thrilled to be at her level - until she notices and gets a little too excited!

Caroline could play with just books all day. I think she's trying to tell him all about it here!

Telling brother some secrets!

100 degrees at the Zoo

I had it in my head that we needed to go to the zoo on Saturday. This weekend was Ryan's first (and last) two-days off for awhile, and I wanted to mark it with something special. Never mind the weatherman warning of temperatures that would feel like 100 degrees.

It was hot! But Caroline had a blast and Duncan slept through his entire first zoo experience!

The lion was a favorite! We've been reading the lift-the-flap book "Dear Zoo" and in the book the zoo sends the child a lion that has to be sent back because he is too fierce. This lion looked pretty laid back but I'm glad he was behind the glass!

We've now been to the zoo when it's cold and raining and hot and humid. I told Ryan I'll let him pick the next zoo day!

Sunday afternoon we had a more seasonally appropriate day and went to the pool. Much better!

Hope your week is off to a great start!
