Just couldn't go!

Well the rest of the gang left this morning...but Rich and I decided we just couldn't go...and decided to keep our little family of three on vacation for one more day! And what a day it has been. We LOVE LOVE LOVE spending time with my big crazy family, but we LOVE LOVE LOVE spending time with just the 3 of us, too! We went swimming (actually Shaelyn Jade mostly crawls around on the pavement and finds all sorts of treats like old band-aids or chewed gum or dead bugs or soggy, old food!)...

...and later we napped and read and sat on the back porch and dreamed about someday when we will build a house on our land...and talked...and napped again...
Talk about one more vacation day...it WAS! Tonight we headed back into the little city of Greenville which, apparently, is the best kept secret in South Carolina! It has the cutest stores and every restaurant you could think of...and beautiful architecture...and monuments and historical bits all over! And right in the middle of this city with tall hotels and business buildings all around, the Reedy River just runs right through with huge rocks and a really cool bridge (that shakes when you walk across it!!!)...and the BEST ice cream shop called Spill The Beans- with the nicest folks working there- just on the other side! That's really what we came back for...:) If Rich said it once he must have said it a hundred times, that that was THE BEST ice cream he has EVER had in his ENTIRE life!!! Now that's a pretty bold claim, I tell ya!
Anyways, I am still having to snap pics on my cell phone until I can get home and download my camera pics to my computer...so it's a little fuzzy...

...but this was us on the shaky bridge tonight...just after a messy but delicious dinner at Sticky Fingers (one of Rich's Charleston faves)!

Perfect ending to a perfect day...perfect week!

More to come...!
