July 26th - Aug 2nd
Destination: Atlanta Ga, Panama City Beach FL, Colubus GA, Charleston SC
Crew: Chuck and Jaime Chapman and their 2 kids Cheyenne and Cayden, Derrick myself and Evelyn. We met up with my mom, step dad and grandma in Columbus GA for Patrick's graduation ceremony.
We got on our first flight leaving MSP airport and flying into Omaha, it took about 45 minutes. The flight was a bit turbulant, being Derrick's first flight, he was quite nervous and was not happy about flying. Evelyn on the other hand, slept. Not through only that flight, but through the one going to Atlanta from Omaha, and the one from Atlanta to home... She had no trouble flying.
When we got to Atlanta, we drove 4 hours south to Panama City Beach Florida. Of course the first thing we wanted to do was see the beach! Evelyn wasn't sure about the waters, the waves were bigger than she was. But we weren't swimming right away anyways so it was ok.
The day after graduation, we drove to Charleston SC. My favorite place in the whole world to go, its just so beautiful.
When we got to Charleston we went to Folly Beach and then ended up swimming at Isle of Palms beach. Both were very nice beaches. The kids enjoyed playing in the warm waters.
Evelyn mostly had fun playing in the sand. She loved the beach!
That afternoon, we took a horse and carraige ride through downtown historic Charleston. Although it was insanely hot, it was beautiful to see all the gardens and architecture around the town.
We were able to take a boat tour through the harbor on "Charleston Belle". The kids weren't to impressed, but the views on the boat were pretty.
I took a total of 750 pictures on our 8 day trip. I was so glad we were able to do as much as we did while we were there. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from our trip:
