Is this for real?

I keep feeling like I'm just on vacation - like none of this is really for real. I told my husband it still hasn't hit me that we won't be saying good-bye again this time. It's just so hard to believe!! I'm so excited about the fact that when I pack my bags at the end of the week it'll include packing our stuff together!
We had a lot of fun in Charleston. We went to eat at Bubba Gump's again - which the twins loved! They also loved swimming in the ocean. The waves were really big this time. I think one of the twins and I caught a few too many of those waves and had a little too much salt water to drink because we both felt sick the rest of the evening. Today we visited a plantation. It was HOT, but really beautiful. All the pictures below are of the Boone Hall Plantation - the oldest, working plantation in the United States. We shopped at their store down the road and the peaches were the best I've ever tasted, and they had grapes almost the size of a golf ball. We also bought other things, including Apple Butter Jelly, which I've yet to find any that compares to my Papaw's. The boys just had to have biscuits last night to try it out. I must say it runs a close second to Papaw's.

This was the drive in to the plantation. Beautiful!
