We're Home!!


What a honeymoon!! Our week away was the best week ever. I can't even believe we're home now! I feel like we just left, but that's always a sign of a great trip. We arrived in SC and got our rental car and we were off to find the perfect condo on the ocean. And it ended up being the perfect place and the best price too. Kenny is the king of negotiating, and he did a heck of a job.





Our seven days consisted of LOTS of swimming in the ocean and the pool, laying in the sand and on the decks, sitting in the hottub at night, lots of yummy dinners, and some road trips here and there. We ventured off to Wilmington, NC one evening and stumbled upon the famous places that were used in Dawson's Creek and Matlock, two of my favorites! That was really fun, and that town is so charming with the boardwalk and the river. Film crews were taping an episode of One Tree Hill while we were there too, so of course that made it even more exciting! Here is "Leary's Fresh Fish" and the wall that Pacey bought for Joey....you know what I'm talking about if you watched Dawson's Creek.


And here is the famous courthouse in Matlock...



We went to Ripley's Aquarium and saw the most awesome display of sharks. They swim right over you in their tank...it's the best view you can imagine without getting eaten!
Kenny had his birthday while we were there and we got dressed up and went out to celebrate....


We went fishing after midnight on the pier and I caught two baby sharks. Believe me when I say that this picture almost didn't happen because I was DEATHLY AFRAID to hold that little monster. He was flailing all over the place and I was screaming like a baby. But Kenny snapped the picture in time.



I found out how much I loved snowcones. They are the perfect thing to drink (eat) when it's so hot out!! And Kenny had to indulge in ice cream....




We had an amazing honeymoon!! I have to admit that I am glad to be home now. Our puppy stayed with my inlaws so she was well taken care of and fed. She was happy to see us! It's so nice to come home and have a clean house (it won't stay clean for long) and still be on summer vacation. To see the rest of the pictures go to flickr. Enjoy!
