Howdy, Campers! Let’s get this 2010 Year in Review rolling again… I’m ready to move on to THIS year’s pictures!
Who knew this giant gaping hole in the ground was just minutes from downtown? We loved it! Jack was in heaven seeing all the equipment. The quarry was so accommodating, renting vans to drive us all over the quarry for our tour. They gave the kids buckets of goodies when it was over.
Scott and I got to take a belated 10th Anniversary trip to Charleston. We stayed on Seabrook Island and enjoyed three wonderful days of chilling on the beach, reading, resting and long walks. We went into Charleston on the most humid day in the history of mankind and melted right into our seats at McCrady’s. Probably the most delicious and mind-blowing meal of our lives. It was fabulous!
Our sweet Mollywood turned 5! We had a very fun celebration with friends from school and church. We had a few ‘stations’ the girls could visit: coloring, making a clothespin butterfly, making a butterfly pouch necklace, along with a ‘find the nectar’ search in the front yard.
Although I originally wanted to make these cupcakes, I decided on a more realistic cake that turned out great! We also enjoyed cocoons (PB&J rolled in tortillas), Catepillar kebabs (green grapes with a red grape ‘head’), and little butterflies (celery pieces stuffed with pink cream cheese with pretzel twists for wings- thanks to Suz for that idea!)
I also got to enjoy a quick trip to Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida to visit our sweet Watsie. She married my grandfather when I was 13 and has been such a precious part of our family ever since. Watsie loved to visit ‘old people’ and brought laughter and joy to all she knew. She went to be with the Lord a few months after our visit and leaves a legacy of faith that we will always cherish. In her apartment she had some cocktail napkins that read: ‘The positive side of memory loss: You meet new people every day!’ – a perfect example of the great sense of humor she had.
Next up: July and more mountain adventures…. that way!
