We are in beautiful Charleston, SC enjoying a surprise vacation that I sprung on my family this week. We’ve had fun at the beach, spending the better part of today on a pontoon boat with friends, and dare I say it–splurging and enjoying foods that we don’t regularly eat. You only live once, right?
Yesterday morning I enjoyed a run in the historic downtown with my favorite little running companion. If you’re a runner, do you know about the site Map My Run? It’s fantastic for when you’re on trips. I mapped out a route last night so I could just go this morning. My little guy has been waking up long before everyone else, so to keep it quiet around here for Blane and Tara, we’ve been heading out to explore and today, to run.
On the pontoon boat, we enjoyed a delicious lunch, complete with fresh caught crab. Here is my man-child devouring some. Not how most of us enjoy them, but he doesn’t care! Believe it or not, I do feed him.
Anyway, here are some interesting posts I thought were worth passing on! Have a wonderful weekend!
