Grammy Visits Charleston: Part II:

Saturday morning we headed out for a walk over the Cooper River Bridge, which you can check out more pictures here from the first time we ever walked it. 
Jettie and I walked it with Charli, while Steven and Amia ran it. It was a perfect way to start our Saturday!




Then when we got home, it was football, football, and more football in this house!! Charli sported her Razorback colors (since I was a little outnumbered here...) ;)

This little thing is cute no matter what color she is wearing though... I mean seriously... look at her! 
(And yes, that is the applique onesie I made for her!)

'Woooooooooo Pig'




Sunday morning was a whole lot of this 


...And a whole lot of Bloody Mary's and Waffles for breakfast ;)

Followed by a full day walking around downtown, taking in the sites of Charleston! 










And walking through the City Market




It was a perfect afternoon, followed by a perfect family dinner at the house, followed by an evening walk that ended with this little number


Our neighborhood is on the water, and we have a private dock down the street that looks out at the river. This was the first night we walked down and caught this beauty of a sunset! I look forward to the many more Charleston sunsets while we are here!

What a perfect end to an amazing day! 

Monday morning Jettie headed back home, and while Steven headed into work, Amia and I headed in to his private gym at his office to workout, while Grammy and Charli stayed home and played! After we got home we walked up to the pool for a little bit!




Charli and Uncle Amia match!


 Then it was a relaxing afternoon in the backyard, hammock and all! The weather here has been absolutely beautiful, 60's at night and 70's-80 during the day, with a cool fall breeze... I am welcoming the cool fall weather with open arms, and am ready to experience the seasons here in Charleston! 

After a very relaxing afternoon, we went out to dinner, and everyone wanted to enjoy another evening walk to the water to catch another sunset when we got home... and that we did!

Not as red as the night before, but I am in love with this sunset just as much!



That made for a perfect end to Grammy's last night here in Charleston if you ask me!


So today was Grammy's last day, but it was nice that she didn't have to leave until later this afternoon, so it gave us basically a whole day with her. So we just relaxed at the house so she could get everything packed up and spend some quality time with Charli before having to say goodbye



And of course I had to snap one of my handsome husband in his uniform! 


We had an absolute blast this past week and are so happy that Grammy could come visit us! We love you so much and miss you already, and we can't wait to see you again! Thanks for a wonderful time, full of wonderful memories! 


Now I am looking forward to just a couple of relaxing days before Uncle Amia arrives again (he and Steven and a few friends have a guys weekend), and one of my best friends will be arriving as well, to have a little girls weekend with Charli and I while the boys are gone!! :)
We are very busy, and have a very busy next couple of months, but are looking forward to every bit of it!
