Flying South for the week

by

Early tomorrow morning, Ann-Elise, Graham and I will board a plane and begin our trek to Garden City Beach, South Carolina. We're going to spend a week or so hanging out in a couple beach houses with my large extended family. It's good times, as you can see from this photo of my goofy father that I snapped during last year's beach week.

This will be my 31st trip to Garden City. It's not a place I would normally choose to visit — I'm not big on fireworks, or air conditioning, or sunscreen, or the heat, or spending money, frankly — but I love being with my family. Garden City is where they go, so that's where we go.

I'll post here if anything terribly interesting happens, but don't be surprised if you don't hear from me for a few days. I'll be off eating junk food, reading books and playing with my baby. Maybe I'll cajole one of my relatives into babysitting, so Ann-Elise and I can go see a movie. Any recommendations?

The Daysie contest will end while I'm gone. Don't forget to vote by Monday at 5. Can't wait to see who wins.
