Sullivan’s Island

sullivans1My sister just moved to Sullivan’s Island so the girls and I decided to spend our first few days in South Carolina with her at the beach. I had never been to Sullivan’s before and now I’m totally in love. It is an adorable beach town with a small downtown and all the locals drive golf carts. We only went to the beach once because it was just too hot this trip and keeping my fair skinned girls safe in the sun is exhausting.

This picture was blurry but I love it because it shows how much Edie loves her little sister. She is always chasing her around trying to kiss her or give her a hug. It warms my mama heart.

I really don’t have many pictures of the girls to share of our time at Sullivan’s because they were naked the entire time trying to keep cool so this selfie on the swing will have to do : )

We loved grabbing gelato at Beardcat’s Sweet Shop. It is all small batch,  made from locally sourced ingredients and the staff couldn’t have been more friendly. We also ate at the famous Poe’s Tavern which was really easy with the kids. If you go for the weekend, be prepared for at least a 45 minute wait at any restaurant (even at 5:00). My sister also recommends The Obstinate Daughter, Taco Mamacita, and HomeTeam BBQ.

We are traveling back to New York tomorrow and we are all pretty excited. Life in a smaller city has some advantages but I love that we have all grown to love calling New York home.
