On Sunday, April 3rd, Andrea and I drove to Charleston to watch the Charleston Open together. We've watched it on TV every year, and whenever we go through Charleston we see the stadium where it's held and often would say "We need to go to that some time". Well, this was the year!
We planned it a few months ago and thankfully Grandpa Rick was willing to come to our house and be with the kids while they were in their normal school routines. Grandpa did a good job keeping the kids on schedule and Paige was impressed that he actually got up out of bed and stayed up after seeing her off early in the mornings. We did a few Facetime calls and snapped a pic of Paige with Grandpa while she was wearing her chef's hat and preparing her school lunch one evening.
We loved our time in downtown Charleston. We went out for dinner on Sunday night and intended to go out at least one or two more times, but we were pretty tired after sitting out in the sun all day watching tennis, so we typically would be content to just clean up and then relax in the evenings. We liked being downtown, and there were lots of restaurants, stores, and the College of Charleston nearby. We took a few walks around town.
