Some photos from our visit to Charleston:
We stayed in a 200 year old "single" in Charleston.
We walked to Marion Square on the first day and let the kids run around.
Sugar Bakery right around the corner from us.
I may have felt compelled to try a cookie or two…
Bitty and Beau's Coffee Shop!
I had to hold myself back from buying every single thing in this store.
Lulu with Katie, our amazing cashier.
Being three, the stranger danger is strong in Lulu (eyeroll).
Katie, however, was sweet, charming, and very friendly with Lulu.
On the second day, we did some shopping and asked for a lunch recommendation from one of the store employees.
They recommended the Mellow Mushroom, and it was a perfect lunch spot. The vibe was very casual and laid back (ahem, perfect for when you have high-enery children who have been dragged to various stores for a few hours), and the food was excellent.
Candid moment of these two - I love their bond.
There's a neighborhood park across the street from Rainbow Row
So we took the kids there after driving through the historic neighborhoods in Charleston.
One of the days was really warm and sunny,
so we drove out to Folly Beach to visit my sister, who happened to be spending Thanksgiving there with her husband’s family! Now I want to go back in the summer and experience the FULL beach season!!
The James Island Holiday Festival of Lights
This was, of course, a huge hit with the kids. We drove through this on our way back from Folly Beach.
All dressed up for Thanksgiving outside our sweet single.
For anyone interested in the pamphlet we talked about today that gives advice on what to say and do when a loved one gets a Down syndrome diagnosis (plus some basic information on what Down syndrome is), you can find it at Down Syndrome Pregnancy.
Thanks for listening and we hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
