Zoo and Eckert's

Friday Dave, Kaitlynn, Olivia and I went to the Zoo. Dave and I were a little nervous about taking Kaitlynn out, since she was only on day 4 of potty training. Kaitlynn did awesome! She was a little unsure of using the big potty at first, but eventually was fine with it.

After Olivia went home, we picked up MawMaw and headed out to Eckert's Millstadt location for the Apple Fest and Haunted Hayride playdate.

The Haunted Hayride was definitely not kid / family friendly. It was way too scary for the younger kids. Eckert's needs to either make it non-scary or change the age range for the hayride.
Kaitlynn did such an awesome job all day with using the potty. She didn't like the porta-potties at Eckert's, but who does? We are so proud of her!

  2. I'm glad the expedition was a success! That scary stuff tends to be way too much. I agree!
