Last Minute Mischief

dsc06347It’s back to the books soon so we decided to treat the youngest to a few fun days. The coast was calling our name. And we were really ready for a break. 

dsc06445Hutson Alley restaurants and The Charleston Music Hall sponsor “Dinner and a Movie” three to four times a year. The event had a french flair this time around.

41c7c1ac-865f-47ff-9d50-027aea89d2b739 Rue De Jean delighted movie-goers of all ages. The Children’s Menu was impressive, but our guys were fascinated with the water glasses and the fresh bread right out of the oven. We cautioned them not to fill up on bread. “But it’s soooo good,” they said.

dsc06442Let the show begin! Ratatouille was the night’s feature presentation. This was our first time at the Music Hall. I loved the historic feel. We can’t wait to visit again!

Our friends at Hampton Inn & Suites provided us with a suite for the night. The best part was not having to watch Sponge Bob with the kids. There’s a separate bedroom with a real door (it locks and everything) and another TV (hello FRIENDS). Everything about the place is family-friendly.

dsc06451We even found something the boys could sit down and enjoy, giving us a chance to actually chew our food  before swallowing.

dsc06460Jumping is not the same as diving, right?!

The boys have officially started back to school. Preston is in the third grade and JP is beginning his second year of middle school homeschooling. Stay tuned next week for a homeschool update!
