  1. Oh My Goodness!!! What beautiful pictures!!! It looks like you all had a ball!

  2. Rebecca and Amy, It was SO much fun! We loved spending time at the beach and enjoying the spring weather. There will be more pictures to come...

  3. Oh my goodness - I LOVE Charleston!!! And your pictures capture it so perfectly! Lots of good friends are at C of C and MUSC - good excuse to go down a lot :D Can't wait to see ya'll again!

  4. I loved it too, Katie!! Now I can understand why everyone told us we HAD to go while we live here. Glad the pictures really do represent it well. =)

  5. Wow, looks like you guys had a fun time! I love the last picture of father and daughter walking along the beach...precious!

  6. We did have tons of fun, Amanda. I love that picture, too!!

  7. Gorgeous photographs! We went on a day trip to Charleston during a vacation to Myrtle Beach a few years ago, and I would love to return.

  8. Aquariann, thank you! Yup, it's definitely one of those places that begs you to come back!

  9. Great pictures, brought back even more memories.

  10. Waist circumference is an important indicator for predicting disease risk. However, the biggest change for many people in middle age is waist circumference. Your pants gradually become thinner, until one day they can no longer fit your growing fat body. People's metabolism slows down in middle age, and the abdomen is a place where fat likes to accumulate, and waist circumference is easily out of control. For the sake of health, put on the NIKSA activewear sets and come to work out.
