Weekend in SC – Monday March 9, 2009

Since Crysta apparently was sitting on pins and needles waiting to see pictures from that good weekend in SC, even though she didn’t leave a comment and say so, I got the fullness of the message when she was here in person this weekend. One of these days I will have to post why she isn’t here in person every day and is living in the land of cold, windy Indiana but that will be reserved for later.

Three weeks ago Ginny (who also doesn’t live here any more and will be included in the same epistle) called just to chat or something. She asked if we wanted to come help with her garage sale the following Saturday and I said, sure, we were planning to come that weekend and hadn’t let her know yet. So, unbeknownst to us, she got on the phone with Crysta and pled with her to fly down for the weekend too. Well, the tickets did get manageable and she flew down to SC on Friday afternoon. No wonder Gin was so disturbed that we couldn’t get there earlier Friday night. In fact, she called us off and on all week to make sure we were coming. But my sister the nurse had a wild day at work Friday so we didn’t get to Wes & Ginny’s place ‘til nearly 1 AM.

We were being given a tour of the house the next morning and the last room we saw was the guest room where said surprise guest was waiting for us.

We had a great weekend doing a little shopping, a bit of eating and a lot of gabbing. Oh, and some trash talking with Wes. We also got to see the church where Jamie will be getting married (Christy and I will be doing the photography) and were given a tour of Fairplay Wilderness Camp by Carol.

Cajun Firecracker Sticks – a delicious appetizer at Fatz Cafe.

Gin shows us what a fried egg looks like after being in the oven for 6 hours.

Crysta and Lois

Wes and Slater

The family that cooks together, stays together. Often families that don’t cook together, also stay together, which is good. I don’t think Wes is actually cooking.

Mason playing with his many little cars and trucks

Ginny has her own cooking show. Here she is making Penne Rigate. Or else she was making corn. I think it was corn.

Here someone from the studio audience is attacking her. She does not have a very good security system.

26SC Don’t ask!!!

Sunday afternoon game of Chutes and Ladders

The game goes bad.

Apparantly Wes does not like losing.

No, really, it’s all good. He’s just having a little fun tussling with his sons.

A little Sunday afternoon garage sitting.

Slater shows us the fine art of dribbling.

Sometimes if you make a face it helps.

Or stare at it in deep concentration.

In parting I shall leave you with a shot of the four of us.


Adios and tomorrow it’s the beach. It’s supposed to be a high of 85*.

  1. Eighty-five degrees in March just doesn’t sound right!  If you go to The Melting Pot, be sure and take your biggest pocketbook along. πŸ™‚  I love baked french toast, but I don’t really go for the cream cheese ones as much.  Thanks for the heads up about looking online.  Those firecracker sticks sound rather hot to me but you sure make ’em look pretty!

  2. Yummy, that food looks good!  I wish I would have known Ginny was having a yard sale because I think Mason is just a good jump ahead of Zachary in size.  (Cute picture of him, btw.)  Glad y’all had a fun weekend.  And in case you didn’t find out, I got the lens!!!!  

  3. …you could have left that last sentence off….!

    I really can’t complain though, because we have had temps in the 50-60 the last couple days. and that’s pretty good for this neck of the woods!

  4. These pictures were such fun to see and I’m so glad you guys got to be all together again.  I have not seen Wes’s house yet so this was especially interesting.  Is Ginny really picking her nose in the one picture?  I’m gonna have to call her.  Have a fun day  at the beach. JEALOUS.

  5. Agreed about that last sentence.

    You guys are a hoot. Looks like fun times!

    BTW- I never did get back to you. I would LOVE to stay at your house when we come down, but Erin already made arrangements with Ken and Carmel. Thanks for the offer and  I am hoping to stay there sometime. I’ll have time to hang out while Erin goes on his golfing escapades.  

  6. You didn’t mention that we live on a mountain top, or that it was a  good day, or that it’s not a big deal anyways…. good times!! We REALLY missed you at the beach today, and i am fried πŸ™ Hope you feel better soon!

  7. @ma_an_pa – @clearlyhis – If it makes you feel any better, I was sick in bed with the flu instead of at the beach! πŸ™

    @loveroffall – I’ve only done 1 other one with Christy last May. There were some posted here. I’m not sure if they’re still in my xanga pictures or not.

    @weswife – HOW could I forget the GSCs?????? πŸ™‚ So bummed I couldn’t go with y’all yesterday. Well, after I got to feeling better, that is. I was too sick to care until about noon.
