This picture of my nephew Sullivan doesn’t have much to do with this post, but it was so cute, I wanted to post it anyway.
This past weekend we traveled to Greenville to visit Sarah & Scott, as well as my newly-married sister and brother-in-law, Lisa & Stephen. (See Doing the Charleston post below.) We had loads of fun on Friday night eating steak and shrimp, accompanied by Casillero del Diablo Merlot. After dinner we played a French card game, Mille Bornes, which was really fun to learn and play. For lunch on Saturday we headed over to Lisa & Stephen’s, got the tour of their new apartment, ate some homemade fried rice (compliments of Stephen), and played more card games. Saturday evening, Rich and I had the opportunity to go out by ourselves for our 3 year anniversary while Scott & Sarah watched Anna Ruth for us. We walked around downtown Greenville to work up an appetite just in time to arrive at Barley’s Taproom and Pizzeria. Rich loves that place mainly for the great selection of beers on tap (which has recently gotten even better since the alcohol cap in South Carolina has been lifted), but also for the yummy pizza. We got white pizza, and it did not disappoint. After finishing our meal, we walked over to Coffee Underground where we got some very sweet milkshakes and enjoyed the ambience of the underground. When we got home, we stayed up much too late watching The Office Season 1, while enjoying more good beers and a wide array of chocolates. We were glad to be able to go to Greenville, since we won’t have many more half-day Fridays to facilitate making the weekend trip now that Rich is changing jobs.
