South Carolina with the McKee's

The McKee's were our next door neighbors growing up in Winchester Trails!  We have all since moved away, but we try to get together with them a couple of times a year to reconnect.  The McKee's are literally spread all over.  The oldest daughter, Audrey, lives in Durham, NC with her husband Ryan and son Sam.  Laura is the next oldest and lives in Vancouver with her husband Jim and the youngest, Scott lives in Washington D.C.  Ana and George McKee followed Audrey to Durham to be full time grandparents for little Sam.

For our most recent trip we rented a beach house in Charleston, SC.  It was such a fun trip with a lot of catching up, sightseeing and A LOT of amazing southern food!

Our favorite new drink!  Firefly is a brand of vodka distilled right in South Carolina.  They are famous for their amazing sweet tea flavored vodka.  The pairing I enjoy the most is called an Arnold Palmer. It is half sweet tea flavored vodka and half lemonade!  It is wonderful...and a little dangerous.  It just tastes too good.

Lauren & Rich's Wedding!!

After our trip to NYC Heath and I headed to Columbia, Missouri for Rich and Lauren's (Heath's sister) wedding! It was an absolutely fabulous weekend! Lauren REALLY outdid herself and planned an absolutely amazing wedding weekend! I don't know how she did it; she is one amazing woman! Lauren is living in Columbia, MO to complete her plastic surgery residency and her now husband Rich lives in Austin, TX where Lauren will soon join him. This was a destination wedding from most of the guests, so there were so many fun events planned.
