Kyle's last weekend living here was a busy one! We had so much to do on our bucket list & just wanted to make the most of it!
Friday night we had a delicious dinner with our great friends, the Adams. (We love them dearly & they really make us re-think this whole moving thing! :P ) We had a fantastic time making & eating shish kabobs, jamming out to The Format, & playing the most random but FUN games!
Saturday started off early. We headed downtown to the Farmers Market where I immediately headed to the Mini Donut stand to get breakfast! :) Afterwards we headed to the market to pick out a sweet grass basket. (You just can't move away from Charleston without buying one!) Next was lunch at Magnolias for the most delicious Shrimp & Grits you'll ever taste-no joke! We totally ate too much & waddled around downtown to take some pictures of CofC & Waterfront Park. At the park we were able to enjoy the breeze, the sun, & the HUGE fountain! :) Once Kyle was soaked we headed home to rest/pack/enjoy what time we had left together. Later Saturday evening there was a Stake Youth Dance at our ward building so we stopped in to see all the awesome decor. We snuck out after a little while & grabbed some ice cream with our friends the Adams & the Artls. It was good times just hanging out & laughing for a while. Kyle had to say his goodbyes to our friends at the end so it was a sad.
On Sunday Kyle was met with many goodbyes & well wishes. He was also released from his calling as YW first councilor. Kyle told my boss' kid, Mikey (who is 10 & is like our kid) that he had to be the man of the house while Kyle was gone. :) I thought it was super cute! Kyle said his goodbyes to Moose & then we had a few tearful moments together we just kept saying that we were just as excited for our future as we were sad to start over in a new place . Although we'd been talking about this happening for 2+ weeks now it suddenly became VERY real & it was just so bittersweet. I felt like he was leaving for the great unknown because he had to start the new phase in a new place without me. :(
