My oldest daughter's out of preschool for spring break so we ventured on a girls trip to visit my mom's family in Charleston, South Carolina. At first I was beyond nervous traveling with my little girls, especially the close to two year old, but the trip has been amazing. My mom reconnected with her 19 year older half brother and his wife, my girls got to play with their great grandkids and we've been having fun exploring a city rich with history, charm and character. From Magnolia Plantation where we spotted tons of gators and peacocks to a horse drawn carriage tour of Charleston, it feels like we've been transported back in time.
Tomorrow we head over to Savannah, Georgia for more adventures. It took my mom and I years to finally plan this trip to her past, and now that we're here it feels like we never left. The moment I opened the door to my Uncle Jim's work shed, I was flooded with childhood memories of my grandfather's second hand store in Arizona. Like Uncle Jim, my grandfather could fix anything and everything. At over 80 years old, Uncle Jim still knows how to fix any car, he built a wooden fence around his house with his wife just a few years ago (imagine that). Ah, and Aunt Wanda's banana pudding with Nilla Wafers just like my grandma made it. It's fun to travel down memory lane once in a while. Thanks for the Southern hospitality Aunt Jim and Uncle Wanda.
