Memorial Day fun

Well, there was no better way to celebrate making it through our first week of daycare than to have a long, fun weekend. Check out our little patriot as we prepare for a day-long outing on her first Memorial Day!

Mommy, Daddy, and HG took a stroll through the waterfront park and had lunch al fresco. Then, with all of the beautiful flowers in bloom downtown, we had our own little photo shoot!

The next destination of the day was the ruins at Lands End, also known as Fort Fremont [check out the wikipedia description of the old marine installation.] It was neat to be a "tourist" in our own town and learn a little history about this 100 year old landmark! Some of the areas were "dungeon-like" so we didn't venture too far inside. In fact, the first time we tried, HG got upset... we were amazed that a 15 week old picked up on the same eeriness as her parents!

Then, to wrap up the day... HG put her cute little toes in the sand and salt water for the very first time... a sign of lots of good memories to be made in the Lowcountry!!

Hope you had a nice Memorial Day weekend! We are so thankful for those who have served our country - past, present, and future!
