beauty and legos

The weather this summer has been fantastic here.  Just beautiful.  It has given us a great opportunity to explore some of our most favorite places and not sweat like crazy animals.
One of our excursions was to the Botanical Gardens where they just happen to have a lego exhibit.  If you know Anne, you know she is OBSESSED WITH LEGOS.  I love it!

Here are a few fun photos from our trip:

feeling like princesses.

kate's daisy troop had an end of the year celebration in june to spend their cookie money that was earned. 

they went to sweet and sassy. a fun little place that caters to girls.  they got their hair styled, a little make up applied, and of course their nails done.  they even had a little fashion show and a dance party.
it was cute.  anne got to go because there weren't enough girls to have the party.  quite the treat, as their momma wouldn't generally just take them there, just because! :)

the rest of vacation....

i'm pretty sure I have drawn this out long enough.
in a nutshell. we had a fantastic time.
I could go on and on.
I won't.
I already am counting the days/months till next year.

Adam's uncle lives about 30 minutes from where we were staying.  We hung out with him one day.  VERY FUN!

Vacation Monday

Monday was continuing the trend of awesome-ness. 
Minus a flat tire that we discovered, in the parking lot of the condo-which really, all things considered, is a pretty awesome place to get a flat! :)

Adam had to get a haircut, and decided that Beufort, SC is as good as place as any to get a trim.  We headed to the beach, he headed to get a tire fixed and a haircut. 

I got a call on my cell phone, he wanted us to be back to the condo and ready in 45 minutes.  He had a surprise for the girls...

We were going on the horse drawn carriage ride tour of the town. 
It was hot, but amazing.
We saw some of the most fascinating beautiful homes, some of them had really cool stories.
For instance, Barbara Strisand, yes, THE BABS (wonder if she would mind me calling her that?!)  Was filming Prince of Tides. (I hope I have that right....)
Walked up the door (or I'm sure she had her 'people' do that) of this gorgeous home, and said, that SHE would like to RENT THE HOUSE for as long as she was going to be there (just a couple months).
Ms. Strisand, then told them, she would like to do some renovations.  (some=MAJOR when it comes to movie stars, BUT she re-reno'd it when she moved out!)
The family that lived there-said, um SURE. That's awesome.  Now here is how much we would like to charge in rent.  She said OKAY!  (the figure was enough to send all FOUR of their children through FOUR years of college!) 
Sally Fields and a few others that now I forget (I knew I should have taken notes) rented, during movie tapings. 
I am not famous, nor ever want to be.  BUT I would love to live in this little area.  FOREVER!

horse had JUST LICKED MY DRESS.  gross.

stopped for lunch.  and a cool beverage.  fun glass included! :)
