We took our first family vacation in 4 years this past week. We were supposed to stay until today but Irene had other plans for us and scared us out of South Carolina a couple days early. So now we are home safe in Virginia watching some rain come down and relaxing for the rest of our vacation weekend. Come Monday, it’s back to the grind — and it’s also my big girl’s first day of kindergarten! I wanted to share some of the photos that I was able to take while there. Of course I have a lot more – if you’re friends with me on FB, you can check them out there. So enjoy our photos, while you enjoy the last bits of your summer!
