Last minute weekend trip

This weekend we decided to take an impromptu trip to Charleston, SC for a long weekend visit. It's not too far- about 3 1/2 hours- and offers so much: the beach, historic areas, a downtown that is incredibly walkable and good food. We didn't have many plans besides definitely heading to the beach, seeing our friend Pat, and swimming in the indoor hotel pool (which was supposedly heated, but turned out wasn't- that didn't stop our boys from swimming a couple times though! The hotel staff, visitors, and I thank you, Brian, for not making me squeeze into a bathing suit!).

We didn't take many pictures of the trip, besides the time we spent at the beach- so, you get a beach-time bonanza:

This was Guthrie's first beach experience and he loved it. It was a little chilly that day, so we were all dressed in several layers, but that didn't dampen any of the fun. Digging in the sand with Dadda:
Checking out a dog passing by- I'd bet anything that G said, "Oooooo, woof woof":

Headed to the tide pool. Even though it was only in the upper 50's, the water was really warm. G got wet pretty early, so we just decided to embrace it and let him play in the tide pool and check out the ocean. Heck, it was his first time and he needed the full experience!

Headed into the ocean, carrying his all too important measuring cups!

Not too sure for a moment:

We're so excited to head back this coming spring/summer so we can spend even more time on the beach. G really seemed to enjoy playing in the sand and was quite fascinated with the water/waves coming and going.

So fun! Chas is such a great place to visit! Were you on the Isle of Palms?

Watching young kids on the beach is the best! Can't wait to see more of him once summer rolls around again.

Jealous! We're so landlocked.
