South Carolina

About a week ago we went to Myrtle Beach California with my parents and my younger sister Kaylee. We had alot of fun. We went to Sumtner which was where my mom lived when she was in Junior High and High School. It was neat to see where she grew up. I'd never been to that part of the country before.

We flew into North Carolina and went and visited the Duke University campus, it was really pretty with lots of trees and really cool looking older buildings. We visited a beautiful garden in the middle of campus.

Another fun thing we did was go to Ripley's Aquarium(Pics Above). We got to pet sting rays and touch these other weird crustacean things. I don't remember what it was called. But it was a really fun place, the kids loved it. Scott is giving the diver in the tank five in one of the pictures and Stacey is doing excactly what I've told them to do by putting her fingers in her mouth after petting the sting rays.

These pics were taken at Fort Moultrie. It is a fort that is at Charleston, which was a really cool town to see. It had tons of huge houses right on the bay which were huge (one was 24,000 sq. feet, puchased for 200,000 back on the 1700 or 1800's), because they were all owned by rich shipping merchants back in the day. We also ate at a yummy seafood restuarant and some yummy crab. Scott was the one who really wanted to go to the crab restaurant and have crab ( I think he learned to like crab when we went crabbing in Oregon). Needless to say Greg, who is a seafood hater, is not too thrilled for Scott's new found love of seafood, and didn't really enjoy the crab restaurant.
We also spent alot of time swimming at the hotel pools and the beach. I don't have any pics of these (I'd always forget my camera). We had alot of fun!

Looks like a fun trip. I wonder how the sting rays tasted? We love you and wish we got to see you at Thanksgiving.

Glad to see you post again! I would love to go on a trip myself looked like fun.
To answer your question--yes, I do think that Ryanna looks like Derek and Owen looks more like me.

too, too cute and It makes me jealous that I wasn't there because I really want to see you. I actually have never even thought about visiting South Carolina, but it looks like a lot of fun and I miss you SO much! I guess I can wait for 3 more weeks though! Can you believe it, 3 weeks and we'll be sitting on the beaches of Hawaii (actually, we'll probably be chasing after our kids and making sure they do not drown)! Love ya
