Days 1 & 2 - Charleston 2011

Yegi's sister Laila is getting married this weekend (July 2) in Charleston (Isle of Palms to be exact).  We came up a week early so the girls could get things in order before the big day.  River was a champ over the six hour drive (Sesame Street on the DVD player was a major help a couple times).  Thanks to Jenny and Johnny for letting us borrow their car DVD players for the trip.  Since River and I don't really have anything to do with the wedding we have been spending a lot of time playing on the beach and around the house.  These are the last few calm days before the craziness begins and everyone else starts to arrive.  Here are a few pics I snapped these last couple days.

Day 1 at the beach.

 Learning to dig.

 Day 2:  Ran to the water and stopped to watch the water wash over his feet for a few minutes.  --Because everyone always asks...those are not bruises on his back, they are called "Mongolian Spots".  Dark skinned people sometimes have them when they are born and can last a few years.  I had them too when I was a baby.

Running back excited.

Morning Lake Run

This was the first morning in what seems like months that we woke up with nothing to do.  Nothing planned, nothing penciled in on the chalk board, just a free day.  We decided to take a cruse on the lake because that has become Rivers favorite thing to do (and its always been mine).  We hopped in the boat and headed downtown.  Five minutes in River was sound asleep and he slept until we stopped at volunteer landing because we saw a steam engine firing up.  Trains are another new obsession so we thought this would be entertaining for him to see a real steam engine instead of Thomas or The Little Engine That Could.  Pics below.

 Nothing puts a kid to sleep quicker.  Another reason we need to move to the lake.

 I think I might have been even more excited about seeing this steam engine than River.  These things really are a mechanical engineering marvel.

 Getting ready to hook up to the passenger cars.

 Taking it all in.

 Coolest Saturday morning ever...

 I love old bridges.

 Driving back home.

Lunch time break.

I guess we wouldn't necessarily need to live on the lake if this guy would let us live on his boat.  The picture doesn't do it justice, this thing probably has more square footage than our house.
