Life is Grand!!!

Tuesday, September 12, 2006


We had a fantastic time on Kiawah Island! For $100 a couple, we spent a week in a comfortable beach house that was a 10 minute walk to the ocean. It was so worth the 12 hour drive (that includes rest stops/lunch/gassing up) to get there from Columbus.

We made sure to get out to the beach at least every other day. My son loved jumping in the waves and playing in the sand. He and his daddy built a little sand castle that eventually was destroyed by high tide. We found a ton of shells (which still need cleaned-any tips?) and I even bagged up some sand to make a keepsake. We got some great pictures, which I should be posting some time this week, and we even have some pics from our late night walk on the beach (including one of some weird guy with his shirt off!!!).

We had a ton a great food, with a lot of leftovers. We all made a big grocery trip on Sunday and we were set for the week. Almost all of our meals were cooked at our little beach home. We made everything from waffles, to burgers, to mexican dip, to spaghetti. Our family ate out only twice during the week.

My hubby and I had a wonderful time together. We shared a full size bed (we have a king size here at our house), but it allowed for plenty of snuggle time! :-) We played cards on the back porch, shared a peach and mango smoothie, watched our son play in the sand, explored Savannah, Georgia (that's another post), bought some peach cider, walked around shops looking for souvenirs, and genuinely enjoyed being in each other's company. Again, it was wonderful!

Life is grand!

Btw, happy anniversary Guru and Lo!!! They are celebrating 8 years today!

I really needed that break. When the baby comes, you'll definitely have your hands full. Hope you can post pics of that wonderful trip.

Have a nice day!
