Posted by on Friday, July 6, 2018, In : For Kids 
In downtown Hartsville, there's an amazing indoor playground called The Play Zone, located between 5th St & College Ave! With slides, a ball pit, a treehouse loft (as I call it) and many toys for the little ones, the kids get to have an adventure, rain or shine!

Holiday Open House in Hartsville

Posted by on Saturday, November 29, 2014, In : For Kids 
My baby son and I had such a great experience at the Holiday Open House in downtown Hartsville on Nov. 20, 2014. The weather was about 40 degrees when we got there around 7:30pm. We immediately drove there once my son woke up from his much needed nap. He was refreshed and ready to take in his first holiday celebration. 

We parked in the parking lot near Centennial Hall, which was what I did when I went to the Trunk or Treat event last month as well. It makes it so much easier to get in and out...

Treat in the Streets was great with free photo by Image by Jessi

 Treat in the Streets in Hartsville yesterday was a lot of fun in downtown. My baby son and I arrived a little later around 5:00pm so that gave us an hour to enjoy the festivities. He just woke up from a nap so it was time for play time! All the kids dressed up in costume but and I only saw one parent dressed up. I took note and I am glad I decided last minute to not dress up. I would've been an odd ball. 
(Meet my son, the bear and his first bucket of candy)

It was my son's very first trick or...

(Scroll down to see more pictures below) Our family went to Frozen on the Farm at McLeod Farms earlier this afternoon. We've been to the McLeod Farms Store before but have never gone to any of their special activities. For the last few weeks, as we were driving around town, we've been noticing the billboards for "Frozen on the Farm" and it really got us interested. (Scroll down to read more see more pictures.)

When we drove there today, we immediately see Halloween and Fall themed decorations ...
