Having TOO Much FUN!!!! Part 1

I am so super busy now but that is not the reason I took a vaca from blogging we were having too much fun with a bit of work here and there! We spent our annual week at the end of July at our beloved BLUE RUN!! It was so much fun as always! A few highlights…

  • Adam and I had our flippers and snorkels to try out this year.
  • The archaic TV in our room had satellite…HAHA!
  • Annabelle caught a fish on her princess fishing rod.
  • We had some friends come visit! Hoyt loved the cold water for a bit.
  • We saw 2 water snakes eekk!

We had many little adventures!  Trips to Pappy’s swimming pool and to Georgia to get tractor parts. A trip to Georgia is not official unless you get some peaches!  We also got Adam’s bow all set up for this November's hunting trip.

Mom and I did our 2nd  girls trip.  It had been too long since the last one which we took in 2002 to New York City.  We are hopping to make it an annual thing.  We already have ideas of next years destination.   This year we travel to a place neither of us had been…CHARLESTON, South Carolina!  It was AMAZING! The town is absolutely gorgeous. The first day we walked around and hit up the market.  We did this each day because there were different people there each day.

The second day we did a tour of the city by carriage ride which was neat.  There is so much history in this town! August 20111

In the afternoon of the 2nd day we went to the aquarium which was fun and cool.  No one told us how hot it would be in August!  We boiled for sure! The 3rd day we went to Middleton Plantation but with in 20 minutes of us getting there it began to pour so these a literally the only pictures I have from it.

On our last day there we took a river cruise to check out Fort Sumter.  The history was gripping and at one point during a presentation you could have heard a pin drop.  The audience was mesmerized.   August 20113

On top of learning a lot about the city and taking in all its beauty we ate and ate and ate.  Oh my the food was glorious.  I would go back just to eat  for a few day..ha-ha!
