weekend good things.

This post is a little late (thank you very much AT&T internet)... but I still wanted to share a few photos of our weekend:
My aunt Tracy, cousin Kacie, and her baby visited. It was really fun to have two babies in the house!! I love seeing Vi interact with her second cousin -- she doesn't see other babies too often (aside from brunch dates with Caitlyn's baby boy), so it's cute to see her try to figure out what's going on. I imagine she is thinking "who is this? and why is she playing with my toys?!" We'll have to tackle that whole sharing thing in the future.

My cousin Kacie and I visited Charleston a few times with my grandparents when we were younger, so she is somewhat familiar with the city. She wanted to go back to the City Market to shop, so we spent most of Saturday afternoon shopping and sampling candy :) I found a really sweet tooth fairy pillow and bought some triple dipped malted milk balls from my favorite peanut shop.

Since it was my aunt's first visit to Charleston I wanted to show her some of the historic mansions so we walked around The Battery and watched the girls play. Afterwards we braved the heat and went to the beach (it was 90 over the weekend!) Violet loves the ocean -- she loves watching the water and she is totally content sitting in the sand (until she tries to eat some and I have to swoop in to stop her!) I'm excited to go back to the beach later this fall and winter when it cools down a little bit.

How was your weekend?

  4. So fun being a tourist in your own city sometimes! Those photos of the babies together is so cute. We'll have to get R and Vi there in a few weeks, he was not much of a fan last time so maybe he'll come around. haha
