Grandma & Papa come to visit

Chad and I were excited to welcome my Mama, Daddy, Grandma & Papa down a week ago for an extended weekend.  It had been a couple of years since my grandparents made the journey from PA to my house and I was so looking forward to seeing them.  My grandparents are amazing.  My Papa, who is 92, drove my Grandma from Pennsylvania to Virginia (my parent's house) and then all four of them made the 6 hour (or 7 hour if my dad drives) journey to Charleston. 

We had a great Kiawah day with lunch at Jasmine Porch on Saturday.  We were treated to a few amazing desserts with the lemon cream cake being our favorite:

I snapped a few great shots of them out by the pool of one of the homes we manage.  Don't they look cute?

My enjoyed the pool table room.  She looks like a pro, doesn't she?

And the three of us have to always snap a three generation picture.  That's a must!!

Dad and I took a quick walk to the beach where it was ridiculously windy.  (This was the same weekend the storms ripped apart NC.  Luckily it spared SC)

On the way home from Kiawah we swung Grandma & Papa by Angel Oak.  That tree just absolutely amazes me. 

Sunday we had a great carriage tour of downtown Charleston.  The carriage tour is a lottery system because of all of the carriage companies.  So the city manages the routes and you literally don't know what tour you'll go on until you pull up to the city official to pull a lottery ball.  We scored the Battery tour which is the most sought after tour.  Woot Woot!

I love my family.  Just wish they weren't so darn far away.......

Oh my goodness, I can't believe your grandpa drove all the way from PA to VA! They look great, so glad they were able to go down and visit you in Charleston. Looks like they had a great time.

PS. I don't think that Lemon cake was big enough.

Time really does fly doesn't it? Can grandpa really be 92? and still driving? WOW! Looks like a wonderful time together as a family. So glad you got to be together.
