There's No Place Like Home!

Although we had a wonderful trip, it's still nice to be home and sleep in our own bed. Colin obviously echos that statement because he slept better last night than he did most of the trip. How he knows one crib from another I don't know, but he must. On the way down we stopped in Asheville, NC. Colin actually did quite well there so we were optimistic. The next morning we were off to SC. We arrived too early to check in so we went into Charleston for lunch. The only lunch place I could think of that was generic enough for everyone was Joseph's. My friend Toni had suggested it for breakfast or lunch because she had eaten there after seeing Rachel Ray eat there on $40 A Day. The food was really good and I'll expound upon that later. It was time to head to our rental house. WOW! It was amazing. The pictures didn't do it justice. We felt like we were living like the rich and famous for a week. I don't have pictures to share because we recorded it on our video camera to get the full effect. I really don't think pictures would do it justice. The girls were a little sad because the pool wasn't huge but they adjusted just fine and were perfectly content by the end of the week. Colin enjoyed the pool, while floating away in his little inner tube. He was fine with the beach too until a wave crashed against us and splashed the salt water in his eyes. He was none too pleased with that and was quickly ready to exit the beach. It was cute though as we were walking up to the beach, he reached his hand out towards the water and gave his "I want that" grunt. Mommy will have to work on that one!

We ate at a lot of great restaurants and I'll post those in mini posts later. For now, here are a few pictures from the trip.

It's good to be home and I look forward to catching up with all of you soon!
