Day at the park

Since Russ had The MAN Retreat this week-end and we were missing him terribly, we decided to get outside and have a picnic at Waterfront Park today. I was so glad to get out of the house and enjoy this beautiful Fall weather with my babe! We had a perfect spot in the shade between 2 trees overlooking the harbor. Noa absolutely loved being outside and kept herself busy trying to crawl. (That's her new thing... and she thinks she's hot stuff again).

Then we went walking around downtown. This was the hotel we stayed in for part of our honeymoon.

Of course there are all kinds of nooks and cranies to photograph in Charleston. I love the understated charm of this city.

After a long walk we ended up at Starbucks to sit down for a minute. Noa was sleeping the whole time but decided to wake up just as we were sitting down. Bummer. So we kept on walking. She was totally content though. She loves looking at people and taking everything in, so this little adventure was perfect for her.

What day did you go?? We went to Waterfront Park on Saturday!! What if we were there at the same time and missed each other?! In fact I'm about to post some pics from that day.. it looks like y'all had a ton of fun and kudos on the healthy lunch (even with your fav-chips).. :)

It cracks me up that Russ' arms are so long that he can always fit everyone (plus some scenery) into the pics.

Looks like fun!

Wish we were in the best city in the wide world!

wow, don't we take our awesome city for granted sometimes?? We LOVE doing picnics at waterfront but now that the kids are older, we can't leave with a hike down to the market also!
