oh yeh ! nothing brings you together like a family road trip!
setting off at 5pm so the kids would fall asleep a few hours later, we hit the highways and drove caravan style with some friends all night arriving in south carolina at lunchtime the next day. hard core!
upon arrival we discovered we had brought the miserable weather with us - hmmpf - grey and rainy but oh well it was still the beach and many many degrees warmer than what we had left behind. we camped at huntington state park and oh did i mention we brought our new puppy with us...meet veda ! our rescue pup and ivy's dream of all dreams come true :) she is incredibly sweet and is going to be b i g...she has bernese mountain dog and newfoundland in her (we think), and stops everyone in their tracks with her cuteness !our easter was rainy and involved moving camp sites from a flooded spot to somewhere a bit drier...despite the parents feeling on edge and prior plans unravelling, the kids had the most magical time romping together in the sand, woods (sighting the 'easter' bunny, for real) and hooning through puddles on their bikes. family, friends and togetherness. what matters :)
oh and we saw alligators. EEEEEEK !!!!!
so many fun memories made - i'm glad we didn't woos out of this trip ! after a few days of beach camping we headed further down to charleston, sc to stay with friends and have some more adventures - of which i will blog about tomorrow.
happy may! mayyyyybe i will blog more this month...
