CU Bound!

Thank You, thank You, thank You for this much needed respite from the unbearable heat we've been having. Today the temp was low, the sun lingered behind the clouds, so we hit the road for a day of fun at Clemson University!

We started with a stroll through the Botanical Gardens.



Railroad car at the Botanical Gardens.



Olivia loved going up and down and up and down the stairs on the railroad car!



Two Tigers!






Run, Little Girl! Run!






We strolled by the ponds and saw a plethora of turtles and fish! Olivia threw rocks at the turtles.

For lunch, we picked up sandwiches and had a picnic at Clemson's amphitheater.




Olivia dribbled her red drink down her chin, dress and arm. Perfect timing on this captured moment!




After lunch, we walked around campus. Kevin and I couldn't help reminiscing about our days on campus as students. Seems like a lifetime ago.

Of course, we couldn't leave without stopping at the Hendrix Center for some Clemson ice cream! I had my go-to favorite, Cookies-n-Cream. Olivia had "choc-cat" (chocolate.) And Kevin had Coffee, which I must say, was delicious, and I will definitely get that the next time!




It was the perfect leisurely way to spend a summer day!

Sincerely,

Leigh
