These Are the Best Days of Our Lives|Isle of Palms

IMG_4473Just look at that cotton candy sky. We got to Charleston earlier on Monday, but decided not to hit the sand until the evening. There’s just something about the beach at night.

IMG_4463These guys had plenty of energy to expel before bedtime. Running on the beach and in and out of the water was just what they needed to ensure a good night’s sleep.

IMG_4469(Allow me to back up a minute) After we unpacked and got settled in our house, we left for the Isle for dinner. We always look forward to eating at Banana Cabana! Our friends had not been, so it was fun to introduce them to it.

IMG_4433These three were larger than life sitting at a table all to themselves. Have you EVER seen JP so happy?! 

IMG_4445Beachfront dining and live music = all the praise hands.

After a lazy, lazy morning around the house, we spent Tuesday at Isle of Palms County Park.

IMG_4501Is there anything better than peanut butter and chocolate?!?

IMG_4504Mission accomplished.

I am experiencing so many different emotions after being in Haiti last week. Guilt is the biggest one. I keep picturing all the women and children in the village who are literally starving and longing for water. Yet, here I sit on another beach with more food and water than I know what to do with. And let’s not talk about the food we throw away.

I’ve busted out crying several times since we’ve been here. I feel silly, but it’s not something I can control. I’m trying to remind myself that everything we have is a blessing from God and rather than beat myself up, I just need to be thankful and not take anything for granted.

We’re having such a great time with our friends and family.

These truly are the Best Days of Our Lives.
