We had so much fun in SC getting to know our friends even better. Maggie had so much fun in a very girly house. My friend, Mandy has 5 amazing kids. Seriously, I have never seen such well behaved and helpful children. Mandy and her husband, Chad are doing a wonderful job raising their children. There were endless smiles in the Smith house with 6 kiddos and a baby.

We spent lots of time by and in the lake which is right out their back door.
Mandy's brother and 2 of his college buddies stopped by on Saturday night and Maggie had so much fun with them. It was great to see these 3 college guys being so sweet with our kids.
There were makeovers and pedicures…
… and lots of baby Evie spoiling
And in between keeping our 7 children fed and happy, Mandy and I got to do lots of talking and story sharing. It was a time of sweet friendship and I look forward to more of the same in the future.
On Monday, we said our goodbyes, and headed to Charleston for two days on the beach. Before we checked in to our hotel we spent the afternoon in Charleston doing some sightseeing and shopping. We found a very cute little cupcake shop and just had to indulge.
Maggie and Evie had so much fun at the beach. I definitely expected Maggie to enjoy it, but I didn't really know what to expect from Evie Kait. She LOVED it!
I enjoyed every minute with my girls…
… and my Mom.
