They got in Saturday night (after John Eric RAN the Charleston marathon...I'm beyond impressed that he was still walking and talking and fun to be around. I would be passed out some where along the way!). Can you tell how happy DeeDee and I are to be drinking wine and talking? It's been way too long! I think we talked for three straight days.
We made s'mores for our dessert in the fireplace.
Sunday morning we brunched at Tandem in Travelers Rest.
And then walked around Falls Park and downtown. We were blessed with glorious weather that almost felt like spring.
DeeDee impressed us with her one-handed put-put swing! But in the end, John Eric won by a large margin.
We tried craft beer at Community Tap and watched a good football game...
and vino on the rooftop of Sip...
and dinner at Smoke. Can you tell we all like to eat and drink? It felt great!
Ryan was off on Monday (we hadn't planned that it just worked out perfectly!) and we drove up to Caesars Head to look at the mountains.
DeeDee gave Ryan a quarter for the view thingy.
This is Bald Rock and is a massive rock overlook on the side of the mountain. It obviously is a place for teenagers to declare their love for one another in spray paint.
We saw American Sniper in the afternoon and it was amazing. Such a moving story. We cooked in Monday night and watched our favorite show - Shark Tank. It was the perfect visit and we promised not to go so long again without "real" Facetime! And next time they are bringing sweet Jane because we all missed her!
