Tim's Birthday Trip to Charleston, South Carolina
Tim's birthday was on June 12th and we always go for a trip to celebrate. Last year, we were in Guatemala meeting Caroline for the first time. This year, we went to Charleston, South Carolina for a night. It was SO HOT! Poor Caroline...she had never experienced humidity like this before! She was such a trooper! After all of our stays at the Marriott in Guatemala City, we have now been upgraded to gold member status. We stayed in a beautiful hotel overlooking the baseball stadium and marina. We could also see the Citadel from our window. Charleston was a beautiful city with tons of history. We walked around the historic district and visited the markets. We also walked down by the river and let Caroline play in this HUGE pineapple fountain! The water was cool, so she was a little apprehensive about it. Caroline loved us pushing her in the stroller and loved everyone paying attention to her! I think we have a future star on our hands!!!
We also went to a neighboring beach/island (spur of the moment), so we put her in the sand and ocean for the first time. She LOVED it! I wish that I had put a bathing suit on her, but we weren't really prepared to go swimming! :) She loved playing in the water. She didn't want to get out when it was time to go! We definitely have a waterbaby!!! YEA!!
Happy belated birthday, Tim! You are a great daddy and we LOVE you so much! Thanks for taking us to a beautiful city to celebrate your special day!
