we ♥ daufuskie island

Last weekend, we were lucky enough to be able to visit the island of Daufuskie! A very good friend (Laura Leigh) moved there a couple of years ago with her husband and shortly after had 1 adorable little girl (Presley). And pretty soon after that, had an equally adorable little boy (Clinton) and are loving their island life. We very rarely get to go visit, so we were thrilled when it worked out for us! Me, MJ, & Molly made the 4 1/2 hour trip and 30 minute ferry ride over.

we were so excited about the ferry

when we arrived we were greeted by the (said) adorable kids and their mama. can't you see the excitement?! Well, on Mary James & Presley's faces..molly's thinking "what the hell - where's the car?" but she soon learned how fun it is to drive golfcarts instead of cars everywhere!
our host & hostess..

Laura Leigh & I go pretty far back (not like childhood back, but teenage, college and all those important years that you never forget!) We never have a chance to miss each other thanks to her many trips home (that I am forever thankful for, now that i know the pains of the journey).. but it's always SO good to see her.

molly & presley are only a few weeks apart - it's fun to watch them and think about how they will always be close friends (like their mamas) Although LL and i don't typically share drinks with a straw. But if there was only one glass of wine left, i am quite sure that we would.

this trip was a very much needed 1 on 1 (well 2 on 1) time with mj & molly. While at the park, MJ asked me to come talk to her on the "bouncy thing" and we chatted about things like how old we are, what her teachers names are (don't worry I did know this information beforehand), how pretty this island is.., etc.

baby clinton, isn't he the cutest?!

molly & presley

we hit the beach in the late afternoons, the weather was perfect

we would only head home after molly & clinton had had their fill of sand

on the last night - after kids were tuckered out early (and a sitter was called), Laura Leigh and I (and her sweet friend Marianne) all hit the island hotspot - Marshside Mama's.

Laura Leigh - we can't thank you enough! It was a very much needed weekend. Put us on the books for next october :) we had a blast!
