Tuesday: Our Ride and Digs Hubby arrived to pick up our "full size" rental car [we didn't get an SUV this time, that mistake will not happen again, we were being good and and saving his company $ =) but we need more room! and no I don't need to bring less stuff... ok maybe I could bring less stuff.] and we'd been upgraded to this beast. We packed it to the brim, and spent the day driving, arrived and got settled at our hotel [I got The Company a great deal on the room too!].
[I was so busy making sure everything was taken care of, I forgot to take pics of our ride and quarters, but I pulled pics for you! click on pics to take you to source for credit]
We ran to Target that night, how far can you go and not find a Target=), to get a new cord for Natasha. Our GPS. She was not holding her charge, and sadly no longer under warranty. New cord and she stays alive without us having to manhandle and twis' it all around to get her to stay on. Everybody got to bed a little late, it is hard to leave Target in a timely fashion, too many fun things to look at, but we were quicker than usual. "Oooh look at that!" haha
Wednesday: Children's Museum Hubby had to work, although that really was the point of the trip ;-), so I took the little ones to the Children's Museum (after we grabbed a Mommy Hook at Babies- great purchase). It was cute. They had 4 exhibits and a toddlers play area. We skipped the art room, played for a few minutes in the pirate room, BabyBoy enjoyed the golf ball room, but his fave was the grocery store. He loved it. [If you go look ahead of time for B1G1 free coupons, I found one at our hotel! It was only $7 for all of us=)]
Thursday: Bloggy Meetup! Hubby had a conference all day so the boys and I got to drive up to see Erin and Hudson from Blue Eyed Bride! We pulled up to the warmest smile and we just talked and played for hours. We had such a great time! She is so sweet, Hudson is adorable and is full on crawling and pulling himself up! Next Edition took notes and by the end of the day was really getting up on all fours by himself and trying his best to follow his new buddy around=). It was so wonderful to meet such a great blogging friend! The boys and I had so much fun! We can't wait to do it again!
Friday: Aquarium, The Market, Magnolias, and The Wreck! We had such a wonderful and full day. We started off at the aquarium, then walked the Market at Market St., went to Magnolias for lunch, back to the Aquarium, then to the Wreck for dinner! We had to fit it all in on Friday =)! We had so much fun!!
The view walking into the Aquarium, gorgeous, with two cute boys and a frog!
Fun fact: the Charleston Aquarium has the deepest large ocean tank in North America! It was beautiful.
To be continued... Market Street, Magnolias, the Wreck, and the ca-razy drive home we had on Saturday! Also to come... two fun little purchases at Market Street!
