Home Again

Well, we are back home.  What? Did I forget to mention that we went to South Carolina for the weekend?  Well, we did.  And at this rate I will visit all 50 states by the end of the year! 

(The math for this crazy statement is that I have been to six states in the first thirteen days of the year.   I mean... really I just drove through most of them, but STILL.  I am counting it for the sake of my crazy 50 state projection.  So if I do the math... six states every 13 days.  That is basically a state every two days, right?  And THAT means I should see no less than 132 states this year.  Since I will tap out at 50 states (since that is all there are) I should be done with this US tour by spring. I have some travel planning to do....)

(one of these days visiting all 50 states should be on my New Years Resolution list.  On a year I have much more money than this current year I am living in)


That was a long and boring tangent.  But I am leaving it because...well...this post doesn't really have a lot of meat to it.  A few random pictures and that's it.  So might as well tack on a tangent to make it feel more substantial.


South Carolina
Here is the reason we drove to South Carolina for a quick weekend trip. It had been WAY too long since we made the drive over the mountains to visit our Mawmaw.

And it ended up working out perfectly because Cousin Matt (who in my head has taken on the title "Cousin Matt" in the way the other family is "Aunt Candice" or "Uncle Chris") flew in from Portland for a visit. We haven't seen him in a couple years so it was awesome! We got to watch his short film (which he wrote, filmed, directed...you name it, he did it) Jack and Jill, which made the trip that much more enjoyable.

Add in some warming our feet by the fire... South Carolina
Some old school cabin building...

and some crazy angry birds driving a Barbie Camper and you have a perfect all around South Carolina weekend!


  1. Whoa! this is the first time looking at your blog and thinking, Hey that's my whole family! So sad that we missed you guys, can't wait to see you again!

  2. I had that Barbie camper! What great memories you brought back (minus the angry birds, of course). Thank you.

    And great pics, of course. Love the feet-warming-by-the-fire. All he needed was hot chocolate and marshmallows roasting on a stick.

  3. I love South Carolina! As we have previously discussed... I need to get back there.
