Busy, busy, busy

We have been so busy lately.
I usually don't complain about that kind of thing, but seriously...
it would be nice if I could at least eat a meal while sitting down.
(And not sitting in the car!)

It's a good thing we are staying busy though as it's making the days go by quickly.

A few weekends ago when we were actually bored (gasp!) we went walking downtown.

I like to do this. Downtown is amazing here.

King street. The main street for shopping and restaurants.

Old Slave Mart. Slaves were kept and sold here until 1863.
Today it is a museum.

Random places downtown

Cobble stone streets. Love!

This particular outing seemed...stressful.
One of those things where you ask yourself why you did it.
I didn't want to sit at home, but when I'm out it seems overwhelming sometimes.

The kids didn't want to be there, but I knew they would have fun if they stopped telling themselves it wouldn't be fun.

Austin peed his pants because I couldn't find a bathroom fast enough.
Mind you he had just peed in a bottle in the car 10 minutes prior...wow, did I just admit that?

At that point I was ready to leave.
On the way back to the car we stopped by The Waterfront park.
It is an awesome relaxed park right on the Charleston Harbor.

Austin wrote his name in the gravel. (remember he's writing his name EVERYWHERE!)

Hunter watched for dolphins, and saw several,

and Maci stole my Diet Pepsi...which was a small price to pay for a little relaxing.

It ended up being a fun trip
and Austin's pants were dry by the time we got back in the car. Ha.

I hate the where's the bathroom? thing... I have extra clothes for Audrey but I never seem to have them handy when I need them. It looks beautiful there.
