Kiawah Island 2013

The weekend before last, Dan and I headed to Kiawah Island to meet his mom, brother, and grandfather. We semi took Friday off (worked a little in Kiawah), took the puppy, and headed down there for the weekend.

It was a little chilly. I know you can't expect beach weather in March, but it was definitely unseasonably chilly. We spent a few hours at the beach in long pants and blankets to take in the scenery, but we were not nearly as brave as the highschoolers who tried to lay out in bathing suits. I wish we could have gotten a little sun, but it was so nice to have a relaxing weekend out of town with family.

We did a lot of walking -- around Kiawah and on the beach. Koda even clocked in over 10 miles one day! Dan's mom also rented bikes so we were able to bike around the island as well. 

For the second year in a row, Dan's mom got involved in making a March Madness bracket. This then led to her following each of the basketball games. It then led to her watching all of the games, and might have slipped into a borderline obsession (teenage boy style). 

She had us watching the games throughout the weekend, and I was recalling the rules from the high school basketball games I used to attend. What's double bonus? How long is the shot clock? 

Before we knew it, I had a vested interest in the games and got incredibly excited as the scores got close. I might even make a bracket next year. Might. This could all blow over. 

We had two wonderful dinners. One at an Italian place on John's Island, and the other at the Sanctuary hotel on Kiawah Island. We then ended up at the Sanctuary on Sunday morning for Easter brunch. Everything was delicious. 

I am so sad that I didn't get a picture of us all dressed up for Easter. 

The weekend went by too fast, and before we knew it we were back at work with a handful of unpacking on our to-do list.
