We escaped winter! My parents have been spending much of the winter in Hilton Head, South Carolina, and when the opportunity arose for Mike, Michael and I to visit for a long weekend, we all jumped at the chance. The trip proved to be so much fun and the antidote to a miserable winter.Not wearing coats, hats and boots for a few days was absolutely wonderful. I event got to run outside several times without being bundled to the max!We spent pretty much the entire weekend outside soaking up the nice weather. We spotted this gator near a shopping center parking lot. Yikes!Long walks on the beach were a daily occurrence and so good for our souls.Saukee liked the extra attention too and provided lots of entertainment (and some anxiety) on said walks.Glorious warmth and sun!Early morning runs were such a treat. I’ve been largely treadmill-bound for the better part of the winter and the fresh air felt so good.The boys played a ton of golf, even getting in a round at the famed Harbour Town golf course. We met them on the 18th green for a family photo.We returned to Harbour Town to play and relax in the sun. Heaven.One last Harbour Town trip included a stunning sunset.We worked up quite an appetite and enjoyed some of our favorite foods: grits, crab, fresh fish, hush puppies, key lime pie and ice cream cake. Yum!When we got home it was a little warmer than when we left and a lot of snow has melted. We’ve still got quite the pile, but things are definitely improving. Think spring!
