I remember when the Captain took these photos. I was probably napping, or sleeping in. When he showed them to me later, I told him that I was going to steal them and share them on my blog. Now, almost nine years later, I finally am. These glimpses of our life in South Carolina bring… Read More 2009: May

All three of our kids were also taken on their first hike here (in… Read More 2006, September: Andrew Jackson State Park
