Happy Labor Day

This labor day Sydney and I ventured to Granite Falls to celebrate a very special little friend's 5th birthday....He is Sydney's skiing partner....Happy Birthday Samuel! We had a great time at his pool party and then after the party is was off for our little fun weekend. We stayed overnight in Greensboro because Sydney loves to go to get-aways at hotels and then we did a little shopping and went out to dinner and basically just watched alot of TV in a really nice hotel! The next morning we woke up and headed to the Natural Science Center...we had been checking this place out online for awhile so we were very excited because we love museums!!! And this was a museum and zoo all in one!

This museum was great! We loved walking and looking at all the animals and they had some great exhibits inside....We really loved the area that you could touch the kangaroos!! We also enjoyed to planetarium movie inside as well! Here are some pictures from our fun weekend at the museum.

Big Scary dinosaurs at the doorway!!!

I love that Sydney wants to read about all the signs that she sees to find out more information about the exhibit!
Getting ready to head into the Discover House which had rabbits, bugs, snakes and porcupines inside.

Sydney really wants to get the chance to touch that Turkey at the petting zoo.....But he is running away very fast!

Getting the Kangaroo to come to her while tempting it with a leaf that she found on the ground...this is the first time we had the chance to touch a kangaroo.

Red Wolves at the zoo......


The lemurs!

Not sure what kind of fish these were....May have been sand sharks....but never the less it was mating season!

I HATE Snakes!!! My child does not have that same fear....She loves all animals and she got the chance to touch some different snakes....EEWWW!!! I stood very far back!

Is not the cutest smile ever!~!!!

This was a great weekend....It was a time for us to just get away and learn new things and have fun just relaxing!! I love you baby girl and look forward to lots more girl getaways!
