  Located off of Kelly Mill Road on Bombing Range in Northeast Columbia, SC you can find an impeccably well maintained gem of the Richland County Recreation Commission known as the Kelly Mill Sports Complex. There's a great playground, 3 baseball fields, and a large multipurpose field for soccer, football, or whatever else you might like to do to enjoy the great outdoors and get some fresh air.

If you're not in the mood for sports or slides, then there is a great .45 mile paved trail around a portion of the 35 acre complex. So if you happen to be looking for something free to do on the weekend around Columbia, this spot is worth checking out.  52 Saturdays is a series of blogs written by JL Boney, ab...

  If you happen to be something of a history buff like I am, then there is no shortage of places for you to visit throughout Columbia, SC and the surrounding areas. Just 40 minutes outside of downtown Columbia in the town of Camden, is the Camden Revolutionary War Site. A wonderful piece of history sitting on 106 acres where 100's died in Revolutionary War. Arguably the center piece for the grounds in the Kershaw-Cornwallis house that proudly overlooks the rest of the site. There are several other buildings and cabins also on display, along with artifacts discovered throughout the area. The cost of admission is $5 and the experience is priceless. The Camden Revolutionary War Site is located at 222 Broad Street Camden, SC 29020 For more information please visit - The Camden Revolutionary...

 This picture of Monkey and Bug was taken over the Summer on a day trip to Landsford Canal State Park along the Catawba River. This beautiful state park is just one of 47 in South Carolina and the little people and I made it to 16 over this past Summer. We do look the outdoor when we have time to explore them.

This walkway which is a small portion of the trail that makes a loop around the lake at Sesquicentennial State Park in Northeast Columbia, SC has always been one of my favorite parts of the park. I have always liked the way the trees stretch across toward the water and create a tunnel affect.

 A couple of months ago Monkey had the opportunity to perform once again at the Music Farm in downtown Columbia, SC. Once again he was paired with fellow students from Freeway Music and this time they performed Billie Jean from Micheal Jackson. We all had a blast watching this little guy and the rest of the students take the stage. I snapped this pick as he was tuning up.

  This is just one of several benches that are scattered throughout the Edventure Children's Museum in Downtown Columbia, SC. Each one has their very own unique appearance and design. While they are certainly not the main attraction for the museum, they are a favorite of mine when I visit with the little people.

 While on an otherwise peaceful stroll around the the lake in Lake Carolina I came across this girl relaxing in the middle of the path. She didn't seem very impressed with me and even turned and came in my direction for a second or two. Given the fact that she was obviously there first I choose a different path as she made her way down to the water. So remember, if you're somewhere warm like I am, watch your step out there.

  Maybe you have some little people in need of a place for a birthday party or just a day out of the house. Maybe you have a deep down burning desire to listen to the Electric Slide while reliving your high school Saturday nights from 1983. Whatever the reason is, if you want to come out and test your balance while wheeling your way in an endless circle across a hardwood floor, Skateland in Elgin, SC is more or less the place for you.   And if for some strange reason the skating alone is not enough to call you to this fine establishment, they do have games, snacks, and a large indoor play area that seems to be quite popular as well. So if you need a good indoor family activity and you don't take yourself too seriously, this may be the spot. Skateland is located at 800 Bookman Rd Pontiac...
