Going away for the weekend aways seems to throw me off. First I spend a few days leading up to the trip getting ready, running errands, cleaning up, packing. Then there’s the actual weekend away. And finally, the week after there’s extra laundry and unpacking and just getting settled back into life. But of course it’s all worth it…even the long drives! We traveled down to Charleston, SC last Friday to attend my sister’s engagement party. It was a great time and we got to stay in a wonderful house right on the beach, which the kids thought was just the coolest thing. Here are a few pics from our little adventure.
Cate was especially enthralled with the sand and beach. Even though she was still sick with a stomach bug and came down with Fifth’s Disease while we were there.
I couldn’t get her off the beach when we first got there UNTIL she knew that her cousin Andrew had arrived. Then she was ready to go back to the house to hang out with him!
And seriously, this kid should be a GapKids model or something. He’s the cutest, most handsome little guy.
Saturday night is was off to the engagement party in downtown Charleston. I don’t have a ton of great pics from that (as I was avoiding the flash and they are all pretty blurry) but here are a few of my kiddos all decked out.
The big guy in there is Uncle Jeff. And then the music started and we found out that Cate is really quite the dancing queen. oh my! Here she is with Granddad.
If you made it through all those pics (sorry!), I have a few scrappy things to share. I was the guest designer at Citrus Tree Studio this month and got to work with a beautiful kit. Thanks, Cindy! Here are my contributions…
And that’s it. Hope you have a great Friday!
