Back Home, Pt 1

We spent a little over a week in Beaufort at my parents' house.

On our first morning, we caught up on sleep. Oscar loves to find anyone who is sleeping in and cuddle up.

Carson enjoyed the pool in the rain. It rained every day we were there except for the day we left.

Pepper appreciated the belly rubs.

We set up our phones with Verizon (we have our old US numbers, if you're reading this for the first time!), which happened to be next to Jimmy Johns, to Carson's great joy.

We also set up auto insurance and renters insurance, while entertaining the dogs.

Mom and I went for a walk, while Pepper sadly watched us leave.

We enjoyed the pool again, but didn't get too much sun.

Mom made pound cake and everyone hoped for a piece. 

We had lunch with Nana at Upper Crust.

Then we walked around the Waterfront Park in Beaufort.

And enjoyed the pool again.

We played kickball in the rain with Oscar.

We checked for bullfrogs with Pepper (her nightly routine)

And found this guy, who mom and dad claim is "little" compared to others they've seen.

We went to Bluffton and the outlets with Mom and Dad. Hit up Sam's Club for a cheap lunch.

And once again hopped in the pool.

Dad made burgers

Pepper woke up Carson

He was happy to see her

Granddaddy and Grandmama picked us up and took us to Hilton Head, where we enjoyed lunch at the Skull Creek Boathouse. We did this two years ago, and I think we were sitting in a very similar place because there's a super similar picture of us there (scroll down on this post).

We drove to Old Town Bluffton next. I've never been there, but it's really cute. This is a church!

Pluff Mud Gallery

We also went to ReStore in Bluffton and the Hilton Head library, where we found some good books!

We picked up our car at Mom and Dad's and then headed back out to Grandmama and Granddaddy's house, with Mini in tow. They kept her while Mom and Dad were in Germany with us, and she loved her time there and they enjoyed having her, so we thought we'd surprise them with a visit from her. Pepper was sad not to be included.

I've never seen this dog so excited to see someone. She was dancing around Grandmama, jumping on her, and doing little circles. She's 13 years old, but acts like a puppy when she's happy.

They had a spot for her bed, a spot for her water, a walk routine, and a back scratcher for her. We could have left her there and she would be happy as a clam. I think she liked being spoiled.

After that, we went back to Granddaddy and Grandmama's for the evening, where we walked down the newly reconstructed dock (it was destroyed last fall in Hurricane Matthew) and caught some crabs for dinner.

This was Carson's first time catching crabs.

While throwing a small crab back into the creek, Carson got pinched HARD and it drew a lot of blood. 

Time for crabs!

I showed Carson how to crack them open, and he enjoyed the process and the crab meat.

When we got back that night, we enjoyed the oatmeal cookies Mom had made and watched some recorded episodes of Jeopardy.
