There’s something about South Carolina that has completely stole my heart sense the first day I visited the state last year.  I am convinced underneath this rough Boston exterior, I am a southern girl at heart.  I love the weather, the food, the slow paced life style and I cant get enough of the southern accents!
 
 We stopped in the Charleston area twice on our Florida Bound Road trip.  On the way down we stopped and visited my brother for a couple nights, and on the way home we stopped through to eat but my brother was on a trip of his own in Massachusetts so we just stopped for the day.




We visited Kiawah Island Golf Resort again, this is an awesome family friendly resort.  The island is breathtaking, the beaches are warm, the pools are relaxing, and the kids can be entertained all day!  My parents have booked a house on the island for Christmas, and I am counting down the days till I can go back.
  
We ate at Triangle Char & Bar, the taco’s and burgers where delicious!  The kids cleaned their plates and the waitress was extremely friendly.

 

After the kids did so good eating we decided to take them for ice cream.  We went back to Belgian Gelato because the ice cream was beyond delicious last time.
 
Then before returning back to my bothers house we of coarse needed to stop and swim in the fountains, because who doesn’t want to jump in a fountain on a beautiful hot day?
 
Its so hard to leave South Carolina, even when I know I’m heading to Florida.  I love Charleston of coarse but we love my brother and miss him being close by so tears flow every time we have to drive away from “uncle”! 
On the way home we swung into Goose Creek, South Carolina to eat at Brazilian Bakery Buffet.  We were driving home in the middle of the Brazil vs. Columbia World Cup game and the hubby was freaking out about missing it.  Goose Creek is much more rural than the central Charleston area, which I liked.  There’s something about living in the middle of no where that has been really attractive to me recently.  However once we get there I may realize its not as fun as it sounds in my head.  So for now we’re staying put in Massachusetts but one day I hope to convince my husband to move South.

    The south is awesome, I'm southern born and raised and wouldn't have it any other way. Even the amazingly horrid summer heat can't drive me out of my home.

    I've been to South Carolina once for my brothers Marine graduation but haven't made it to North Carolina or Charleston both of which are on my bucket list.

    I'm glad your trip was fun and you got to see your brother for a bit. Thanks for sharing the amazing pictures.

    I'm also a Boston girl who has fallen in love with Charleston. We visited for a day when we were spending a week on Edisto Island and can't wait to get back someday!

    Awe – the picture with the cat is tooooo cute. You should frame that one. Looks like you had a blast. I've never been to Charleston or South Carolina, but I do have a goal to visit all 50 states, so one day I'll be there hopefully.
