staycation 2015 and the mystery man behind the blog

Waiting on the next set...

In case you've been a reader of this little blog for a while and have wondered who comes up with all our adventures, the truth is it's not just me. My husband and I are actually pretty private people but long ago decided that some of the places we've discovered on our travels around the state are just too good not to share in the hopes that some other family might enjoy them as much as we have. It also seemed like a great way for me to learn how to use a computer for more than just email, as well as slowly figure out my camera a bit better. It's his idea to keep it simple; no adds or sponsors, just organic information real families can use for mostly inexpensive day trips in the local area and across the state. We've had a ball along the way and this space has pushed us to try new things while learning about the state we call home and have grown to love so much.

However, my husband is, and will likely always be camera shy when it comes to appearing on this site. While he is 100% supportive of this endeavor in every way, I try to honor his privacy and that of my children by only sharing a portion of what we do and where we go... I'm sure you have "secret" places your family wouldn't want to share either! Truth be told, I struggle to keep up with the man behind the blog - he has more energy and enthusiasm for life than anyone I know.

 After 19 years of marriage, he still surprises me with his inventiveness. This week's "staycation" was his idea and has been a whirlwind of water sports and just about anything two young boys would find most exciting...

  
It's amazing how far you can get on a tank of gas with a heavy picnic. No need to take an expensive vacation - you can feel like you're a million miles away! We took a day trip to an island somewhere off the coast up Georgetown way - his idea, not mine, and an epic adventure it was...


And running... there's been a whole lot of running going on around here which brings me to an upcoming event our family highly recommends. We tried the firecraker 4 miler run at Laurel Hill plantation (linked here) last year and it's a great way to enjoy your 4th of July weekend...
