This past weekend we went to Charleston for a family vacation to celebrate a significant birthday for my Mom…which may or may not have happened a couple years ago already.
The first time we did this type of family vacation was when my Dad had a significant birthday a few years back. We went to San Antonio, TX. Here’s a flashback picture from February 2011 (notable: Jen and Jason were not married yet, neither were Ger and Lauren and Micah and Ivan weren’t born yet! A LOT can change in a few short years!):
This year my parents and Ger, Lauren and Ivan came to our house at the front and back end of the trip. Here are some pictures I took of their time with us at the house.
We all drove to Charleston on Thursday and picked Jen and Jason up from the airport that evening. We stayed at a beautiful house a block away from the ocean. It was pretty incredible! Being so close to the beach, we were able to spend time there periodically throughout the trip without much work. The house also had a pool, so we were able to swim a bit every day, too.
Milestone alert: Mike taught Ethan to dive.
More pictures to come of our time experiencing Charleston. This was seriously an awesome trip! Lots of great memories made!
