We went to Boone Hall for St. Andrew’s Church’s Easter service. We went last year with my parents and LOVED IT. The service is outdoors under the biggest tent you’ve ever seen. They provide bottled water, coffee, muffins, bug spray, and child care. It’s free parking and free admission (it’s usually $19.50 per person just to get on the grounds!) and free warm fuzzies that last for days.
This year certainly did not disappoint. Year two solidified that this will be an annual event!
The music is out.of.this.world good!
Next up was some beach time on Sullivan’s Island…
Look at dat belly!
…then it was high time for High Thyme, also on SI, for brunch! (No pics…sorry!) We had reservations, but were about 30 minutes early. We figured we’d check it out and if they couldn’t take us yet, I’d
wobble mosey on next door for a yummy decaf iced latte-ish drink at Cafe Medley. Shoot – they could take us! We sat by the door so we had the open air feeling, without too much wind. It was heaven. Scott and his Dad both had shrimp and grits, Scott’s Mom had the biggest omelet you’ve ever seen, and I had a fried egg BLT. It was delicious – I would DEFINITELY go back! My only complaint? No lemonade!
The second half of Easter was spent relaxing on the couch watching the Masters!
THE REST OF THE WEEK
We relaxed but fit a lot in, including painting the nursery (YAY!!!), a trip to Isle of Palms, a trip to Folly Beach, some downtown, lots of pool time (once out at Surfside where my parents were on a mini-vaca), and lots of yummy out to dinner (Poe’s, Water’s Edge – 1 of the best happy hour’s in town!, Jestine’s Kitchen, and Pearlz)!
Here are just a few pictures to prove it…
Oyster shooters at Pearlz (I was so jealous!)
The weather was wonderful and the time off was even better! 30ish days until summer break!!!
For all those on a week and a half delay (like me), I hope everyone had a great holiday!
p.s. I wonder what time Cafe Medley closes and I wonder what Scott is doing RIGHT NOW…?! hehe
