On the water….

how about this for a perfect day….

* met up with friends downtown for breakfast at Toast…oh man, yum! a must stop if you are in Charleston! One day there will be a visit WITHOUT the kiddos and it will be all about the “Bottomless Mimosas!”

* met up with friends for an afternoon boat ride….sunny skies, on a river somewhere in South Carolina, endless snacks and a cooler of beer.

* and the kids’ favorite….dinner at Chuck-E-Cheese.

* our next adventure out on the water was a day they said it was going to rain so we skipped the beach….. for a water taxi ride over to Patriots Point…for a cheap fare you can get all day rides on the taxi….a great way to see the Cooper River! We never saw rain…just sunny skies and in the 80s!!

our first stop was the submarine….my kids will forever remember it as the “hot and smelly submarine.”

that first picture of caroline is so cute and looks EXACTLY like one that I have of my little ladybug at the same age - we have it enlarged and framed on a wall I love it so much ... I should email it to you, it's eerie how much the 2 pics look alike!! anyhooo ... this day looks like a lot of fun - what a great vacation spot - so pretty and so much to do!!
