Charleston Day 1


My friend was giving away a free hotel room to Charleston and since my M-I-L's birthday was this weekend,I couldn't pass it up! So the kids,grandma and I headed down to the low country on Wednesday. Our first stop was Cypress Gardens. Everything there is just beautiful from the butterfly house, to the animals and then of course all the cypress trees!

As soon as we got into our room Kain headed for the couch..lol.


We were only a block or two from the market so we were going to check it out. We walked out of the hotel and if you know the sidewalks in Charleston they are all uneven. Well my MIL tripped and I think she might have broke her ankle. Yeah it was really swollen and turning blue. But she kept on going! You know when I go on vacation someone has to get hurt.

We went and walked around the Battery and the kids climbed on all the statues. The breeze was so nice that I could have stayed out there all evening. We saw a few dolphins playing around in the bay too.

We took grandma back to the hotel and we walked to the fountain so they kids could play in it. The kids were freezing but still kept playing.

They finally decided they were cold enough and we went in. We were all tired from being on the go all day and it was so humid! But our first day was great besides grandma's ankle!
