First of all, I must bow down in thanks to Chels , who created the awesome new template.......you ROCK, girlfriend! I can only begin to imagine how much work went into this behind the scenes. Thanks sooooo much, I love the template and it is gorgeous!
Secondly, let me tell you about today's fun in the Lowcountry. We went to Ft. Sumter (insert comment from history geek: Ft. Sumter is the site of the start of the Civil War in 1861), which is in Charleston Harbor and requires a 30 minute ferry ride each way. Weather was great, and we had a blast. We were exhausted by the time we got home, but I think a good time was had by all, and we had (mostly) good behavior from the boys. Here are some of our pics:
This is inside the ruins of the fort. As usual, little Mr. E wasn't looking when the pic was snapped:

On our way back to the ferry dock:
The ferry leaves from the Patriots Point monument (site of aircraft carrier USS Yorktown). They have military memorabilia there, like this cannon. The bridge behind us goes into Charleston.
