We have been relaxing on the beach this past week. No projects, no work, (ok I am a realtor, so I did have alittle work) precious family time, and gorgeous weather. We spent the week in Hilton Head and enjoyed every minute of it. We parked our car for the week and either biked or walk everywhere. Having a 16 year old and 18 year old these trips mean the world to me. Although in my world the kids will always want to come on vacation with us! :)
Here is some of our trip.....
|For my b-day we went to this great seafood restaurant right on the water. We sat outside and listened to live music and ate some delicious food!|
|We spent every single day right here.|
|Brady & Bryce. Those two are not in the same place too often anymore, so nice to have time together!!~|
|We played a lot of prokadema on the beach. Not sure if that is what it is actually called, but that is what our paddles said. It was a fun game!|
|We decided to bring our dog Lacee with us for the first time. She was a great traveler. Never heard a peep from her the entire car ride.|
|We loved coming to the beach at night to just read and watch the kites.|
|We saw quite a few dolphins, it was beautiful!|
|This was our first time kayaking. I was a little nervous, but it was easy. Although my arms got pretty tired!|
|Brady is used to more thrill seeking kind of activities, but he enjoyed this too!|
Now on to the flea market find!
On our first day we found this little coffee shop that was off the beaten path. It is called The Broken Spoke. I really wish I would have taken pics while we were there! It was a very cool layed back kind of coffee shop with big comfy leather couches, cool tables, mellow music, great coffee, and the best part?....... It is like a mini flea market! Everything (mostly) is for sale in the shop. Antique tables, wall art, trinkets, old clocks, rocking chairs, bikes, you name it!
I saw this crate the minute I sat down and knew I wanted it. It was big and our car was pretty full with 4 people and a dog. I left without it. But of course thought it about it ALL week. On our way out of town I just had to go back. I got that little beauty for $25.00! It even has old metal handles on both sides. TJ (being the good sport he is) made room for it in the car.
Of course I am not sure what to do with this yet, but I will find a spot! I just think it is pretty cool to have a vintage crate from South Carolina! If you are ever in the area check out The Broken Spoke Coffee Shop, it is a pretty cool place. The owner Tim made us feel right at home!

I am thankful for the week of relaxing!
