iPhone-o-Gram! Lunch with my Boy!

I've made it to South Carolina and have had a great BBQ dinner with the guild girls and those who have traveled in from out of state for tomorrow's workshop!

One of the benefits of driving this way is that I get to stop and love on my eldest son. Jason will be 29 in November. How did that happen??

We enjoyed a lovely lunch at Pawleys Front Porch in the Five Points area of Columbia.

I'm not sure what was on his burger but I think it had burger, egg, ham, cheese, tomato, lettuce and onion. But look at this thing!!

As for me, I had good ole SC style fish tacos. You see, I was trying to save room for tonight's BBQ. Lol.

I failed. Miserably!

But I did get a drive by pic ((sort of)) of the state Capitol!

We are headed back to Sally's house to go feed the horses. Horses! Someone pinch me. I think i've died and gone to Tara from Gone With The Wind!

Tomorrow? Smith Mountain Morning class!

Night, Everyone!

It sounds like your having a blast! Food looks good and who could possibly resist having a chance to spend time with one of their children? Hope your entire trip is as fun as this one day looks :)

I think that burger comes with age restrictions. Over 40 and they ask for your medical insurance ID, ha, ha.

Isn't it great to spend time with your adult kids!

Have a wonderful trip.

I second Gail's sentiment about spending time with our adult kids.

I still have three at home, only one of mine has flown the coupe, but I already enjoy spending time with him when I can.

ENJOY your weekend.

My younger child is a boy, now age 23. Don't know where all that time has gone. He's fun to hang out with, too.

My son turned 48 this year! I see him daily! And love it. Our daughters (3) live here too!

Glad you got to see your son and spend Mom time with him!

AH Life is good! Doesn't it just warm your heart when you spend time with your grown kids? Life's continuing circle ;)

South Carolina is a treasure! Love the Low Couontry cooking, and slower pace and the gentle drawls. Have fun - thoughts and prayers go with you.

It has been about 4 years since I visited the US and I had forgoten how big the servings are over there. I have no idea how anyone can get there mouth around that burger but I have 2 son inlaws that I am sure would love to try. Great you had time with your son I have 4 daughters and 8 grandchildren all living near me which I love.

We went to Pawley's Front Porch a few years ago (after seeing it on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives)on a trip from Ohio to Charleston. My husband and son had a big ol' hamburger and I had the fish tacos! I showed my husband your post and he said "You quilters are all alike!" (And in many ways, he's right!)
