We've had quite the birthday celebration weekend. What started out as three extra girls quickly became five extra girls by bedtime on Friday...bedtime for Hank and me, anyhow. When we got up on Saturday morning, the five had become seven. Thank goodness for the guesthouse...they're able to go out there and stay up as late and be as loud as their little heart's desire.
Saturday morning, the girls slept in then took off for the beach. They arrived back home just as Hank, Legare, and I were headed downtown ourselves for dinner with friends. I'll review the new chef at Charleston Grill soon...it won't be stellar. Anyhow...the tired, sand-covered girls jumped in the pool to cool off before resting a bit and then headed downtown themselves for dinner and dancing. Hank was sound asleep in his chair and me, likewise, on the sofa when Lor called about 12:25 AM to let us know they were heading home. Needless to say, they slept until almost noon today, so we had muffins and fruit at noon, then pizza and salad around 4:30 so that the girls could get back on the road for home.
Lor got some fabulous gifts and you'll see in the slideshow the little goodie bags we shared in return. They were a great bunch of girls...we didn't worry one single bit that they would get into any trouble. They've all apparently been raised by Southern Belles who taught their daughters how to be gracious guests. Enjoy the slideshow...I played around a bit with putting text in the photos so you might want to move the slides manually so that you don't miss the narrative.
