A family visit...

 My mom and dad came for a visit the 1st week of November. It was their first time here and we are so glad that they were able to come see us. I found tickets for a very reasonable price but they did have to fly to Myrtle Beach so the kids and I drove out to pick them up. Not a bad drive at all but it would be much nicer to just fly to Charleston.
 We really lucked out with the weather it was just about perfect. It has since cooled down but still in the 60's so can;t really complain for this time of the year. MUCH cooler than it was last year this time.
 We did the Home Depot workshop of course :) Could not miss it.
 We headed to Folly Beach pier for some fishing. My dad loves to fish so I had to make it possible for him to get to fish in the ocean. Luckily the pier had pole rental and one day fishing passes.

 Started out a bit chilly but before noon we were all hot.

 While Dziadzia fished and Neal napped/read his book on the bench Babcia the kids and I went for a stroll on the beach.

 Dziadzia actually caught 6 fish but nothing big enough to keep :/ and no

 Making sand angels.

 We visited the Angel pretty!

 A LONG walk on the beach!
 Yup we live here :)

 Dad found some star fish.

 Sigh looking at these makes me want to go to the beach..... a little too cold for that this week I REALLY hope that it warms up.

 We visited the aquarium of course but SO SO disappointed that we never made it to the actual downtown Charleston.

 We had a bonfire one night and roasted hot dogs and marshmellows.
 We had a great time and are so glad that they came out all the way down here to visit us. We hope that they can come back again soon :)
