On June 10th we left the hot, sticky city of Waco for vacation! We were so excited to get away and take a break. It would be a trip of several firsts for Everett.

It all started with his first plane ride.  Over all he did really well slept all the way to Atlanta and didn’t even get fussy when we had to walk really quickly to catch our next flight– a short 45 minutes later we were in Asheville.  We spent the night in Franklin, NC with Adam’s parents then drove to Monroe, NC to spend the night with my parents.  The next morning we drove down to Charleston, SC.

My parents, Nana & PopPop, came with us for the first night – the 5 of us spent Saturday taking a water taxi and walking around downtown. Aunt Jen came down Saturday evening – we went to dinner – and then the next day hit the beach!

I was most excited to take Everett to the beach.  It is my favorite place in the world to be and I couldn’t wait to share it with him!

Everett had been battling allergies all during our trip and then Monday morning woke up with a high fever so we took him to the local urgent care.  He had a sinus infection. We got some medicine and he started feeling better right away.

On Wednesday we made the long drive from Charleston, SC back to Franklin, NC. Thursday Everett stayed with Mimi and Grand-dad while Adam and I went out for the afternoon. Friday was wedding day as Adam’s good friend Sam got hitched.  Saturday we boarded a plane and headed back to Texas.

We ate lots of good food while we were away! At Hymans seafood in Charleston we ate at the same table where AC/DC dined at one time. We ate at a yummy place called the Mustardseed, and then at a vegetarian friendly soul food place called Alluette’s cafe, then in Asheville we ate at some of our favorites, the Laughing Seed Cafe’ and The Early Girl Eatery.

Everett is now sitting up on his own and will sit and play for quite some time.  He also had 2 teeth break through! Still no crawling  – I think it will still be a while although I hope him watching all the other kids at school will motivate him.

Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy:
