kiawah weekend

What a great weekend!  Megan, Adi and friends had a wedding in Kiawah last weekend so Brad and I tagged along.  Since Brad passed all of his real estate appraiser tests, I treated him to a room in the Sanctuary and a round at the Ocean Course before the rest of the crew arrived.

Thursday we had dinner at The Atlantic Room at the Ocean Course Clubhouse.  Brad had the swordfish.

I had the salmon.

And we shared some truffle mac & cheese.  Divine!

Sunset over the pool and ocean from our room. 

Cold and WINDY on the Ocean Course putting course.

The trees grow inland due to the relentless wind.  The pros are gonna have a tough time during the PGA Championship next August.  We have our passes for that already!

Coming up the back nine along the ocean. 

Brad had a great drive on 17.  You can see his ball between the hole and caddy.

Great Blue Heron soaking up the sun.

Brad in trouble.  He had a hard time getting it out of there.

Ocean.  Just beautiful.

After that tough, cold round, we met my old co-worker Spencer in the Turtle Point Clubhouse for drinks.  Then, we had a yummy dinner at Virginia's on King downtown.  Shrimp and grits for Brad and fried catfish for me. 

Saturday we went to King Street Grille in Freshfields for lunch and then watched the game with the crew at our villa.  Then, they all headed out to Ingrid & Jonathan's wedding at Mingo Point. 

Adi & Megan

Hunt & John.  Lauren was a bridesmaid so she had already left. 

Trying to get a good Christmas card picture.  Not quite...

Still not right...

We had reservations at Al Di La for dinner but there was a horrible wreck on Bohicket and we couldn't get off the island.  So, we went to Rosebank Farms instead.  Fine by me.  I got to enjoy their Triple Chocolate Oatmeal Brownie so I was ok with that.

Then, the real party got started at our villa.  'Icing' abounded.  It was all Brad's fault.

Probably the best one of the night.  Adi reached for a Tostito bag that Hunt had and found a Smirnoff Ice instead.  Ha.  He's a trooper!

Then, Megan and Hunt got iced.

Adi decided to finish Megan's for her.

Brad's was in a utensil drawer.

We found a German drinking songs CD in the villa and cranked that up.  The dancing was hysterical.

Late night, the guys decided to dance on the counters.  Children...

Group photo.  Love that Brad is 'chugging' the Pringles.  :)

Adi 'tebowing' after finishing his ice.  Good times. 

On Sunday, we went to Fat Hen for brunch and hit the outlet malls before taking the Filipovic's to the airport.  Sadly, we didn't buy any Chistmas presents, only things for ourselves. Oh well!

We had a great time!!  Can't wait to hang out more this weekend!
