September weekends

This is gonna be a long post! Not every weekend of every month is busy.  And we like it that way.  But September was different!  Every. Single. Weekend was spent doing something with family and we had a blast!

Labor Day weekend:  We spend this weekend at Myrtle Beach with my dad’s side of the family.  My Meme and Papa, my dad and his 3 sisters, along with some of the grandkids and great grandkids all stayed at the condo of a friend of theirs.  We had so much fun…beach time, pool time, seafood dinner, Broadway at the beach, and Ripley’s aquarium were some of the fun things we did.  Here are a few of my favorite pictures.  I am SO incredibly thankful to have spent this time with my grandparents.  Memories were made that will be treasured forever!IMG_5512 IMG_5514 IMG_5513 IMG_5516 IMG_5515 IMG_5517 IMG_4384 IMG_4380 IMG_5518

Weekend 2:  Aunt Spencer’s birthday!  We headed up to Charlotte to Granny’s house for the day.  It was a lot of fun!  She cooked lunch for us.  We had cupcakes and pie for dessert.  We played games, pin the tail on the donkey, threw the football outside, and more.  Granny, Devin’s great Aunt Hoss, and Aunt Cindy are usually the ones to travel to SC for holidays and get togethers, so it was nice for us to all head up there this time.  Can’t believe Spencer is a QUARTER OF A CENTURY old! 😉 I remember when I was a freshman in high school volunteering in her 2nd grade classroom. Fun times! And of course on our way home we had to stop for checkers and dinner at Cracker Barrel.  IMG_5519 IMG_5520 IMG_4517 IMG_4515

Weekend 3:  Camping!  We packed up and headed out early Saturday morning.  Our first stop was Skytop Apple orchard.  The weather was perfect!  We picked apples, explored the orchard, played on the playground, got slushies and donuts, and just enjoyed our time there.  After that, we headed about and hour and a half north.  We checked in and got our camp site all set.  Then we headed down the road to Linville Caverns.  That was neat!  Afterwards we grabbed dinner, played on the playground at the campground, then settled in to our campsite.  We snuggled up around the fire, made smores, and told ghost stories.  The next day we packed up and headed up the Blue Ridge Parkway.  We hiked to Linville Falls.  It was beautiful.  After that, we headed down the mountain, grabbed lunch, and came home.IMG_5521 IMG_5522 IMG_5523 IMG_5524 IMG_5525 IMG_5526

Weekend 4:  2nd Annual Henson family lake weekend!  Mrs. Amy’s boss has a house on Lake Murray.  Everyone was able to make it this year and we had so much fun! The kids caught a TON of fish, we played games, ate lots of food, and watched football too.IMG_5527 IMG_5528 IMG_5530 IMG_5529 IMG_5531 IMG_4879

September sure was a fun month!
