I have the good fortune to live in Charleston where if you don't like the weather, wait a day and it will be good again! Seriously, this weekend had the most gorgeous weather of any November day I have seen in a long time! A day that begs to go outdoors. So to make sure we did that without having to fight with the lure of the Wii and Legos, we headed to Charlestowne landing. It was one of those days where they have people out there in period dress pretending to live during that time. We got to see women baking pie in an open hearth; watch cranberry beans cook over an open flame; and hear cannons being shot. To be accurate, I should say hear and feel cannons being shot! And we got to learn that indigo had to ferment in urine in order to turn into dye. Makes me want to go out and buy some indigo dyed jeans!!
What we like to do to our boys on nice Charleston days!!
Sailing the Adventure ship
So we had a fun day outdoors! Can't think of a better way to spend a nice day in Charleston. And to end the evening, we had a building night. Well, at least Dave and Camden built things. Dave built Nathan's Kinex set and Camden built his new big Lego set. They both have to spend more time finishing them...but that will make for more fun nights!!
