Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain...Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; they will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.

Babymoon? Sure, why not.

Apparently people take "babymoons" before their first blessing joins the family.  I was unaware of such a thing, but we'll say we took ours May 28-June 2.  We had a wedding to attend in Edisto.  Located at a plantation on the marsh, it was absolutely beautiful!  It was one of the most unique weddings I've attended.  A bluegrass group provided the ceremony music under the live oaks and played everything from "May the Circle Be Unbroken," to "Canon in D" - all bluegrass style.  Every element southern to the core, sweet and elegant.

Kyle's parents rented a house for everyone for a few days.

Michael and Rebecca joined and we had a blast! 
We beached it, napped it,
Trivial Pursuited it, biked it, and enjoyed every minute.

I grew up going to Edisto, but the Boyce's had never been.  I think they love it as much as I do.  Such a family beach.  No commercialization.  No bells and whistles.  Just beautiful beaches and vacationers who feel like family the minute you meet them.

Our 2 year anniversary was May 31, so Kyle extended the stay for the two of us a couple more days.  On the recommendation of our dear friends and locals - the Moredocks, we ate at Grovers.  It was fabulous!  We highly recommend it if you're in the mood to eat out at Edisto.

Can't wait to take Eliza to Edisto!
