Thankfully, we decided to split up the trip down there and drove half way to Charleston, SC on Friday and the rest of the way on Saturday.
Isaiah kept talking about going to "Charlies house"! It was so cute to see how excited he was to go on a road trip.
He would ask us when we would go on a road trip and we would have to keep telling him we were *on* the road trip right now! The most common phrase we heard was "I don't want to go home!!"-and we had to assure him that we were not headed home for several days :)
We arrived at Brandon's aunts house where we were graciously housed and fed for the next two nights!
Sunday we went to church and then the party followed immediately after. It was held in a screened in pavilion which made for a beautiful breezy afternoon protected from the downpour that ensued half way through.
It was also nice to be in summer type weather for a day :)
We headed back home early on Monday morning around 6:15 and spent about 17 hours on the road. It was a long day and the kiddos did so well. When we had about four hours left they started to just be over the whole road trip thing. Who can blame them??
Needless to say, we were all so very glad to be home!
