Charleston {days 4 & 5}

We spent Thursday at the beach in Isle of Palms. It was just the best day.
Jamie and Thomas built a fortified castle with a huge moat and then enjoyed watching the tide destroy it. Jamie said that was his favorite part of the day -- that, and going out in the waves with Daddy.

here comes the tide!
I don't think I could love this picture any more than I do.

Jamie must have spent hours digging around this second castle. Even while we were sitting and relaxing he kept on working. I was worried he'd get bored at some point but he never did!


still at it!

We all got burgers and fries for dinner at a restaurant super close to the beach. It really hit the spot.

Seriously. The best day.

We had tentatively been planning to spend Friday morning in Charleston, go on a walking tour, go to a plantation...and then drive home in the afternoon. But after all the sand and sun we were a little wiped out and decided it would probably be best to have a more relaxing morning before driving back to Knoxville. After leisurely packing up and checking out of the hotel, we got breakfast at the Early Bird Diner where we had gone earlier in the week. Thomas and I both got chicken and waffles (amazing! Hands down the best waffles I've ever had) and Jamie had French toast and sausage. Our drive home was pretty terrible. Jamie was awesome, but Jacob was either asleep or screaming the entire time and even in the car he'd only nap 40 minutes. On top of that, we got stuck in FOUR traffic jams that added 2 hours to our trip. Needless to say, we were all happy to be home! 

The driving part aside, it was a great trip! We hope to go back to Charleston again someday, and I look forward to more fun vacations with my little family! :)
