friday fives

{one}  I took the girls to the Main Street Children's Museum in Rock Hill.  Totally surprised, but in a good way.  It is not a museum...  The name is a bit misleading.  It is basically a big indoor play area.  Phoebe had fun.  It will be especially good in the winter and on rainy days.

{two}  We went Blackberry picking at Bush-N-Vine farm on Monday.  Phoebe got the hang of it pretty quickly and learned to only pick the ripe, black ones.  We have been enjoying fresh blackberries and blackberry cobbler this week.

{three}  Mom and Dad are in town this week and dad brought back some chocolate from his travels to Japan.  This included not only green-tea flavored chocolate, but also a Green Tea Kit Kat.  Sounds gross right?  It was surprisingly good and I would like some more.

{four} I am the proud (?) new owner of a minivan...  Ok, so to be honest I'm not 100% sure how I feel about it yet.  The plan wasn't to get a minivan until we had three kids and all the car seats wouldn't fit in our cars anymore.  But my car was on the verge of dying so we took the plunge.  More on this later.

{five} Couldn't resist this cute picture.  And guess who is going to be TWO tomorrow?!?

  1. Rock Hill?!?! Are you my neighbor?! I am in south Charlotte, in Waxhaw! That chocolate looks kind of gross but awesome at the same time. I would keep it for looks, ha! Surprised to hear it wasn't bad. Congrats (I think) on the minivan, at least if you are going to be driving one, it is a stylish one! :) I saw you on the link up :)

  2. I'm so ready for a minivan but hubs won't agree. Plus there's that money thing. ;)

  3. Work may be sending me to Asia within the next year ... so if they do, remind me to bring you back green tea Kit Kats. (And you're right - they are surprisingly good!) But you know they're available on Amazon, right? :)
