Charleston, SC Fire Museum

If you're wondering why it's been quiet on the home front, it's because we've been on our family vacation. As most of you know, my parents are leaving for Singapore in one month to serve an 18-month mission. My family got together for one last reunion before the big event. We met in Myrtle Beach, SC. That's my mom's home and where we spent every summer I can remember.

Marty had never seen Charleston, SC before. So we decided to fly into that BEAUTIFUL city and spend a few days there before making our way up north to Myrtle. We lucked out thanks to Uncle Andy and got an amazing room at the Hyatt. It was super cheap to boot. Thanks Uncle Andy. We took the kids to the Charleston Fire Museum. The kids loved it. They had a fire engine simulator and a fire pole/slide combo. Those were the main attractions for the ninos.

We also saw the historic Battery and ate at the BEST seafood restaurant Hymans. After you get past the name, it really is quite wonderful. Side note: I don't know what it is about restaurant names in the south. We ate at another one north of Myrtle called "Sea Man's." Go figure.
