Alright, alright, alright everyone. Listen. It was a horrible car ride down that first day, and my kids got the best of me. They won. We’ve all forgiven one another and moved on.
First to a “castle” – also known as the Biltmore Estate. We had a slight change in plans, and D and I ended up taking both girls on the tour. Get this – they were great. I know, right? I’m not sure what happened, but I’m pretty sure we shall not speak of this again. We don’t want to curse our good luck.
Then we had the 5 hour drive from Asheville to Hilton Head, and it went pretty well (although, let’s be honest. The car-ride bar has been set pretty low).
Then we got to the house. Oh, this wonderful house. The set up is perfect, the bedrooms are plentiful and the bathrooms are huge. Each bedroom has a TV (see how the Feldmanns judge things as perfect? It ALL comes back to the availability of televisions). Paige is sharing a room with her oldest cousin, Gracie, and she is so excited about it that she LITERALLY has been jumping around like a maniac. In fact, they’ve been in there working on projects and ‘crap’ the majority of the time they are inside.
Blair seems to have realized her cousin Nate is friend, not foe. She stopped hitting him (for the most part) and has started giving him smooches and playing with him.
