(this post has lots of pictures)
During the first week of May (I'm so behind on updating the blog) we took a mini vacation to Charleston, South Carolina. Gary had to go down for work for a couple of days so me and the kids decided to go with him! I had never been to Charleston before and wanted to check it out and I thought it would be fun to go as a family. Gary was busy with work the entire time but me and the kids kept busy and had fun!

I had a lot of plans to explore downtown Charleston but as soon as we got to Charleston the weather was terrible. It literally stormed the entire time we were there except for the first day. As soon as we got to our hotel I packed the kids up and left to find the closest beach. 

We ended up going to Sullivan's Island! It was such a pretty beach and not crowded at all! The only thing that I did not like about the beach that day was it was extremely windy! Jax fell asleep and I put him in his stroller and the stroller was moving because of how strong the wind was. Sophia had a great time though! She wrote her name in the sand, ran from waves, and just enjoyed every minute of it. I say this all the time but she seriously is a little mermaid. 

It was Jax's first time ever to the beach but he ended up sleeping the whole time. He did stay awake long enough for me to take a few pictures. It was also my first time taking the kids to the beach alone. It wasn't too bad. Just felt like a lot to carry. But we did it and had fun

We ended up just hanging out in the hotel room until Gary was done for the day (which was late). The second day we were there was when it rained like crazy. I wanted to do something fun with the kids so I drove us into Charleston and we went to the aquarium. I knew Sophia would enjoy it but didn't think Jax would because he is so little but he actually loved it! He smiled so big and laughed at almost everything. We even watched a 3D movie that he did great through. The movie was probably my favorite part about the day. The movie had side effects that Sophia loved. When it snowed or rained in the movie, it snowed & rained in the theatre too. Jax did amazing during the movie too!

The next day we hung out in the hotel room and packed up because it was Gary's last day of work there. We left around 1PM & headed to our next stop of our little mini vacation - Virginia Beach - which I will post about tomorrow!
