We had the pleasure last weekend to go to Charleston to visit Uncle Sam during his week off. For those of you who don't know, Sam has just started his second year in his fellowship in Cardiothoracic Surgery. Since he gets time off about once a year, we decided to jump on it and make the trip. We had a blast! Sam and Alyssa live in a beautiful area in Mount Pleasant called I'ON Village. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, I encourage you to go online to check it out. It's a gorgeous, picturesque village lined with Charleston-style houses along ponds and the waterway. The neighborhood has several nature reserves, playgrounds and pubs, stores and an inn within a block's walking distance from Sam's house. There are tons of people and young kids out playing and enjoying the scenery all the time. It truly was a pleasure to spend some time with Sam in his new home. AB loved visiting and we hope to again real soon. I've included some photos from our trip below.
