The next day we took pictures for the kids 5 year portraits. On the way back we saw another giant alligator we named Allister. Later we ended up trying to go on another bike ride, but Katie did not want to ride near the water after our wildlife encounter the day before. After a short ride we went back to the beach house for a quick lunch before hitting the beach. It looked like the warmest day, but was really one of the chilliest. That didn't stop us from having beach fun! That evening we all worked together to cook a Sea Food Boil! After a nice diner we took a walk along the beach before getting the trio into bed.

On Wednesday, we went for a long watch down the beach to try and see the Dolphins Feed. The Dolphins didn't show up, but we had a nice stroll down the beach before spending the afternoon in Charleston. While there we went on a horse carriage ride around the city before doing a little shopping. That evening we had a quiet night where the kids watched a movie.

The next day we had breakfast at the Sanctuary in a restaurant called The Jasmine Porch. We made sure to get our Jar of Warm Weather for Grandpa Huddas While we were there. Since it started raining, we packed up and headed back to NC.
That night we watched the movie The Guardians with the trio since they (and we) were pretty tuckered out.On Friday, our last day before starting to head home. We met Aunt Kathy Murphy's friends for breakfast.

We stopped once more in Ohio before heading home. Once again it was a great trip! We already can hardly wait for April 2014...
