During the last week of July, the hubs and I rented a beach house on Isle of Palms with a great group of friends. It was a fantastic week of relaxation and laughter. Next year will be a little different with Q coming along, but I still can't wait. I'm ready to go back!
Megan, Shannon, and Neil were the first to arrive so we headed out to dinner
the hubs somehow talked his way into a free drink
the restaurant overlooked Shem Creek which made for some great people watching
Shannon helped me in the kitchen most nights
Shannon, Amanda, Megan, and I may have taken a couple of trips to Sonic
blowing up the air mattress for Amanda
the market now has a section that is completely indoors and air conditioned, super fancy!
the hubs and I could eat our weight in pralines from River Street Sweets
out of the 9 of us, 5 are teachers
Neil enjoyed playing with Amanda's new book
there was plenty of beach time even though it rained for a day and a half
while at the grocery store we found "juice boxes" of wine
and apparently they did not taste good at all
Megan even tried blessing the wine to make it better
on Thursday night we all dressed up and went to The Red Drum for dinner...I highly recommend it! Danny and I have been 3 times now
Shannon's fiesta chicken
Jessica and Bryan at dinner (they got a little sun ha!)
my dinner, knife and fork grilled chicken tacos
Megan found a puzzle at the beach house and everyone worked on it throughout the week
on Saturday the hubs and I went on the Ft. Sumter tour before heading home
during the ferry ride we saw the coast guard practicing
this is my favorite picture of Charleston from the week...such a wonderful trip!
