Going Home: South Carolina

After our time in N.C. it was time to head south to my home state of S.C.  The boys and I had been there this summer and I had been but Allen had not been in two years.  we had lots of fun hanging out with our family and friends and getting to see and do things that are not part of our life here.

We started off with my high school reunion.  It was so fun to catch up with some of these wonderful people that I’ve known forever!

We made plans to stay downtown to be nearer to the reunion.   I’ve always wanted to stay at The Poinsett.  It didn’t disappoint…the somehow upgraded us to the Presidential Suite.

It is a lovely hotel is you are ever visiting Greenville, SC.

We got two good visits in with our friends the Troyers.

Unfortunately we missed lots of other friends due to scheduling {the kids there were not on Fall Break}.

All the guys got their eyes checked…someone needs glasses!

Michele’s neigh-bor came over to say hello!

While the boys were outside playing they found the perfect spot to swing from the tree.

Soon enough Allen had figured he needed to get them a swing made.  He had plenty of input from the females in the family…I am sure he appreciates that.

Soon enough the boys were on their new swing!

We got to make a stop at Krispy Kreme Donuts!

Allen loved Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar as much as we thought he would!

One day we took a picnic to Falls Park.  The boys had a blast rolling down the hill…again, and again and again!

This tree grows on an embankment there in the park.

My mom adores watching the boys do their thing…while she sits in the swing.

We had a few bonfires.  We all love that.  It was cold!  But that didn’t stop me from roasting two perfect marshmallows at the same time.  As my sister and husband both scoffed at me being able to even do one perfect one.

Yep, that is me holding up 2 fingers…not flashing a sign!

All of this and I don’t have a single picture of the boys with my sister, who spoils them rotten and babysat them for 24 hours while Allen and I went to the reunion, so here is an old one from this summer!
