S: Let's Have Fun, Fun, Fun
FC: March 2012
1: Our Vacation | I don't know where to start with this vacation... I started planning this trip in January and it was supposed to take us to Orlando to meet Josh, Anna, Hudson, and Chris's family for a weekend. It didn't work out so off to Columbia for a few days to FINALLY meet Hudson. We left on March 15th. On the 13th I started to feel sick and so on the 14th I came home early from work to try to get feeling better. Tony left for his last night of work before we left... Less than 1/2 hour later there was a big bang. For the 2nd time since we have lived in this house, someone hit his pickup...As it has been called...SPENCE LUCK! Thursday morning I went to the walk-in clinic to find out why I felt so sick and was running a temp. According to the PA I had a "raging UTI". prescription in hand, I picked up the last minute stuff at Target and then we were off!!! NOT A FUN FLIGHT!
2: Day One...March 16th...Lazy day... Josh got sick overnight and I was still running a temperature. We stayed at the house all day and just enjoyed getting to know each other again. Chris and Kristin came over and we found out that their kids were in NC and Tony would have to drive up there to see them. We also found out how much Hudson loves Elmo that day. | Fri

4: Hudson Swings! Saturday, March 17th. TJ, Lorin and I joined Josh, Anna, and Hudson at a park in Lexington for the afternoon.Tony went to NC to see his other grandchildren. They were gone til late. Those of us who stayed in town had a wonderful dinner at a local Mexican restaurant.
6: Sunday, March 18th, 2012 Charleston, SC. Folly Beach. We drove into Charleston on a beautiful Sunday morning. Folly Beach was amazing... not too hot, not too sunny,not too crowded. The boys had not been to the beach since we left Virginia so they really enjoyed it. Hudson is a "beach boy". These two pages go together to tell the story of a wonderful day.... As we were leaving the beach, the stomach flu attacked Lorin. Then we heard there was an accident on the only bridge off the island. This meant a two hour wait... A six pack of beer and good company (and a VERY good boy in the back) made the wait fun.. We once again found ourselves enjoying what we came for...family time and relaxation. Thank you again,Josh, Anna and Hudson
8: These pictures find us sitting(sleeping) in traffic to leave Folly Island. When we finally got into Charleston, we drove quickly through the Battery(potty breaks needed all around) and then walking down the pier to catch a glimpse of the USS Yorktown and Fort Sumter and a way cool bridge. The plan was to enjoy a leisurely visit to The Market and then eat seafood at Bubba Gump's We did only after... I fell on the beautiful slate sidewalk and ended up in a wrist brace for a few weeks. WHAT A VACATION!
9: A Day at Lake Murray | MONDAY, MARCH 19TH We were lucky enough to be invited to Ellen and Andy's home for a day of cruising the lake and enjoying the sun, followed by an amazing dinner on the patio. What wonderful Southern Hospitality we were shown.
10: The end of a very wonderful, weird vacation. We all enjoyed meeting Hudson for the first time, visiting with Josh, Anna, Chris and Kristin... relaxing on water and in the sun. | Family
11: One last weird thing happened...Lorin managed to loose his wallet. Josh and Tony went back to the lake to look for it but it was not found. So...The next day at the airport Lorin had to go through extra screening with TSA. Thankfully, he made the flight. And what a long day we had getting home. Can we come back if we promise next time won't be so strange? | Memories
12: Random Memories
13: Well...I have to have 20 pages to publish this book so I guess I'll had some random picture to my scrapbook. These are pictures of our vacation that I had not decided to use. TJ and Lorin enjoying their nephew and the sun. And a plant that was near the beach that I thought was very unusual. Also TJ in something other than black...Proof that color adds joy to your life.
