We took a 4 day weekend and hit the road to Charleston to visit my sister, brother-in-law, and brand new nephew. Fletcher works so many weekends (but I appreciate how hard he works for our little family unit) that oftentimes I end up on the road alone, so it was a nice change to be on the road together. It was also nice to both take two days off work and have a long weekend...but of course the major highlight was meeting little Eli.
He is such a sweet baby! He is just a really easy going baby, and I soaked up lots of good time holding him. And Ab is a GREAT Mom! She is so calm, nurturing, and loving. I think half the way back to Birmingham we discussed what a great mom Ab is. She never once complained about lack of sleep, and it seemed we were the ones falling asleep on the couch in the afternoons while Ab was buzzing around. It was so fun to get to spend a long weekend with them!
On Sunday Fletcher and I went downtown for brunch and to walk around. The little nugget sleeps too much to make any major outings, but we took a little field trip during his nap. We ate at a super cute restaurant that was in an old house, Poogan's Porch. It was fun to have a nice lunch date! Then we walked around by the water, rainbow row, and the battery. Charleston is such a fun place to visit!
