Fall at Our Park

We have a little park just around the corner, and we love to walk there when it's nice!  When the time changes, we'll have to go earlier, but for now we can go between dinner and bedtime.
We always have it completely to ourselves, so the kids can run around and play as much as they want!

I am so grateful that we can spend this time together!

Charleston Trip Part 3

This post will wrap up Tad's and my anniversary trip to Charleston!  See parts 1 and 2 in case you missed them.

Sunday morning we didn't leave quite as early, since we had to check out, but we were excited to spend the last day of our trip together!
We walked down to the tip of the peninsula and got to see this beautiful view!
It's always fun to spend time with my sweetheart!
We walked down The Battery to see all the beautiful historic homes!

Then we got to Rainbow Row, and walked back on the other side of the street so we could get a closer look at everything!

I could just hardly even take in all the gorgeousness!

I love him. ;)
For brunch, we went to Poogan's Porch.  We got there around 10:30, and we were so glad we did, because we had to wait for about an hour to be seated (they told us 20 minutes), and people who started arriving after we did were told the wait was 2-3 hours!

We were glad we went to Poogan's Porch, since we had heard so many good things about it!

We ordered fried alligator as a starter, just to say we tried it!  Not to be cliche, but it tasted a lot like chicken!
Tad ordered an open-faced omelet with fried oysters and hand-cut fries.
I ordered shrimp and grits with peppers, onions, sausage, and poached eggs!  It was totally fantastic and I was sad I couldn't finish it all (huge portion!).

Before we left town, we decided to get a takeout meal to eat on the road around dinner time.  We went to Martha Lou's Kitchen!
The menu
What the restaurant lacked in atmosphere, it made up for in the amazing food!  When we stopped to eat it later, we were blown away by the fried chicken, cornbread, green beans, and macaroni and cheese.
It was all so good, and we aren't even huge fried chicken fans!
The drive home was beautiful!
We had such a fantastic time together in Charleston.  I do not take it for granted at all!  Dates are few and far between, as are trips of any kind, so this was definitely a privilege!  We are grateful to God for allowing us to make this special memory together.

At a Bible study for moms that I'm a part of, we were really encouraged recently to prioritize our marriages.  It's so easy to get caught up in taking care of kids all day long, that nurturing our marriage becomes less of a priority.  It shouldn't be this way!  I'm glad that Tad and I were able to spend this time together helping our marriage become stronger!
