My mom and I went to Charleston this past weekend. I hadn't been to the beach in about 5 or 6 years and was looking forward to going back. The weather really wasn't that bad...but next beach trip, there are definitely things we'll remember to bring (such as our canopy, my beach volleyball, and a bigger cooler).
We found some parking along Palm Blvd that was free - woo hoo - and was right next to the public beach access.
Ladybug's first trip to the beach!
Ladybug served as a great umbrella holder for some shade. :)
Mom and I
After the beach, we were looking for somewhere to eat for lunch and stumbled upon the Cupcake store - $2.75 is a lot for one cupcake but man are they delicious!
By some miracle, I was able to wait outside in the heat for this yummy food - Jestines...downtown Charleston - so good! We ended up getting stranded inside because of a really bad thunderstorm - thus ruining our plans to go back to the beach that evening. We did get to go to Paolo's or something like that...it's gelato ice cream - not as impressed as I thought I'd be but it was good.
Sunday before we left, we hit the outlets. We found some really good deals at Carters and Gymboree. This is Ladybug's coming home outfit! I was SO excited to find it! Uh hum, notice, it's pink. ;)
I think I may have actually convinced my anti-beach husband to come to the beach next time. :) We had a really good time...so thankful we were able to go. Oh, and a big shout out to my good friend Kris for letting us crash at her house so we could spend money other fun places!!!
