A little trip "home"

We lived in Charleston, SC prior to moving away for Ben to go to seminary.  It was hard to leave this beautiful city.  I am so thankful my family still lives there and we can go back often.  It's my favorite place in the world and is where I feel the most at home.  The marshes, bridges, sunsets, beaches and delicious food are just part of the reason I love this city.  This city is where I met and fell in love with Ben.  It's the city where we walked the beach late at night and dreamed about our future.  It will always hold a special place in my heart and I pray God will send us back there someday.  Until then, we will visit as much as we can.

Ben had to stay back and work and ended up having a guys weekend with some friends.  Us girls had a great time enjoying family, going to the beach and eating at all our favorite spots! 

Such a big girl riding the boogie board

All my friends and family have been raving about Jeni's ice cream.  I couldn't wait to try it.  Was it good?  Yes.  But, in all honestly I was kinda under-impressed.  I know I might get hate mail for that one... And maybe I just need to try some more flavors.  Don't get me wrong, it was yummy.  It's just I was expecting to taste the holy grail of ice cream and it didn't wow me.  

Haven gets spoiled to death while we are visiting family and this trip was no exception.  She played guns with papa...

and begged him to share his ice cream
She was the constant source of entertainment and spent the weekend getting spoiled by her auntie, uncles, mimi, papa and cousin Carter.  It was so fun to have all 4 of my siblings "home" together.  Unfortunately we forgot to all get a picture together. 

My family loves movies.  Especially my Dad.  It wouldn't have been a trip home without going to the movies as a family.  We went to see teenage mutant ninja turtles.  I know this picture is black and all you can see is Haven's yellow bow, but I had to document this.  I LOVED TMNT as a kid.  Like picture action figures and TMNT pajamas.  When I saw they were doing a remake I was really afraid they were going to screw it up.  But, I actually enjoyed it and thought it was pretty darn good.  How fun that 20 years later I am sitting in the theater watching it with my daughter.  Let's face it though, she had no idea what the heck was going on.  

We went to one of my favorite spots, Pitt Street Bridge, and I of course had to take some pics of my girl. 

 I mean, who can pull off that shade of yellow?  

 Lots of silliness ensued with Uncle Colin - that's what 10 year old uncles are for! 

Until next time, Charleston...
