This past weekend, the kids and I traveled to see some dear old friends in Charleston, South Carolina. My husband went camping with some friends, which meant a long ride in the car for me. 😉 I was a tad nervous about the drive, because I know my daughter and how she acts at almost two years old, but it actually turned out to be a fun adventure. I loved and will always cherish the memories of the time I spent with my kids in the car for six and a half hours (times two). I took my time getting there and back because I knew the kids were going to need a few breaks. A three and a half year old and a two year old are fun travel buddies, but they aren’t quite old enough to grasp the fact that Mama is driving and cannot pull over every second they drop a toy or their DVD stops. Rush was pleasant, but Lennon was fussy for most of the trip. She doesn’t have the patience nor attention span for a movie unless it involves Elmo, so I came prepared with no-mess markers and paper. However, she kept dropping the markers and would scream at the top of her lungs until I pulled over and retrieved them for her. Haha! She managed to sleep some here and there so, overall, it wasn’t a terrible experience. I have a special place in my heart for these, not-so-smooth moments because I believe they help shape me into a better mother. If you lose your cool, the screams will only grow louder and so, you must deal and devise ways to entertain the restless youngins.
Kenny and Rachel Norsworthy were our hosts for the weekend… and what great hosts they were! On Saturday, they took us to a favorite local spot of theirs called AC’s. I ended up running into a former Tri Delta sister of mine, which made my day. I love how time passes and some people still look the exact same. I’m not sure if I do, but it was great to see a familiar face in an unfamiliar place. The kids loved this place because it had “games,” as well as chalkboards and colored chalk on the walls of the bathroom stalls. As a result, Rush wanted to go potty every five minutes so he could continue working on his drawing. It was a pretty rad bar and grille type of place with charming wooden booths that were carved with various names of those that had sat there. Might be shabby for some, but it was absolutely delightful and refreshingly cool to us. 🙂
