The Aunts came marching one by one. . .
and hauled us off to Charleston. (Us = Seth, Ethan and me. Troy had to stay and work.) Being a huge American History fan, I thoroughly enjoyed touring
Drayton Hall Plantation
Taking a boat tour of the harbor and getting a view
of the Atlantic. (The boys' favorite.)

Gazing at the ocean and touring Ft. Sumter.

My little Ethan -
Rocks+water=big splashes.
He was so excited to throw rocks "in the ocean."

We visited Patriot's Point where we saw warships,

planes, submarine, etc. . . This was very fascinating since

three of my four grandparents served in the Navy.

For the Bible school students who think they have it rough,

I had to include this snapshot of bunks. :-)

I get claustrophobic looking at them!

I was not up to my normal speed,

so we took frequent breaks.

Yes, the dead cat was there, too!

So that is where you have been... was a little worried about ya. How did that other ultrasound go? You actually looked nice in those pictures, I already look like a whale. Your trip looked like lots of fun! Well, I am escaping housework by being on the computer, so I need to get back with it... got lots of work to catch up on since camp last week, etc. Take care!

Did you not like Kathy? I see Earl and Joan. I may need to have a chat with our other aunt!

Aunt Kathy was only in one photo; she dislikes getting her picture taken. She was usually the one snapping shots for Joan and me.
