For our tenth wedding anniversary, my husband surprised me with something he knew I would absolutely love! A trip to South Carolina to see my brother! My brother moved down there about 10 months ago, and the kids and I have missed him like crazy.
I was beyond thrilled to get to see my brother, because we have always been very close, and also to check out South Carolina!
We got there on a Friday and came back home on Monday so we definitely didn’t have time to do everything because this historic city has SO much to see but we will definitely be back soon.
On the first day, we were pretty tired from the early flights so we spent the afternoon relaxing and walking around Charleston, we grabbed some ice cream at Belgian Gelato which was pricey but some of the best ice cream I have ever tasted! Then we ate dinner at Red’s Ice House on the ocean, this was a laid back restaurant with delicious food and the sunset was breathtaking.
The houses in the heart of Charleston are simply gorgeous! The views are just as Beautiful! It literally took me 24 hours to completely fall in love with this city.
Over the weekend we had a big Birthday Family Dinner because we missed each others birthdays, the kids loved that. We spent some time at the Kiawah Island Resort so the kids could swim and play, and ate at the Cherrywood BBQ and Ale House on the Island. We also spent some time at the Aquarium, on the Beach on Sullivan’s Island and ate at Poe’s Tavern.
Sullivan’s Island reminds me of a quaint town in Maine but the weather is a whole lot nicer! I’ve told the hubby over a dozen times that when he strikes it rich we are living on that beach!
