You Just Don't Mess With Tradtion

If I had to describe my family in one word it would be tradition! Everything we do is based on tradition and I would not change it for the world. Every year for the past 25 or so years my mom's side of the family goes to Surfside Beach for a week. My mom and aunt rent a house and we all go done and have a blast. We go Saturday to Saturday. Every Friday before we leave, we all go to the bookstore to buy magazines and/or books to read during the week and we are not allowed to read them until we leave Saturday. On our way down we always stop at Cooper's Country Store to get a snack...this usually marks our half way point!

And every Saturday for dinner we have baked ham and biscuits. Over the past 6 or so years we started taking Khaki and White pictures all because mom found a picture of all the kids wearing white tops and jean bottoms back from when we were younger. We wear white shirts and khaki bottoms. Below are some of the pictures taken over the past few years.
Pictures from 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008 Beach Trip:

But by far the thing I love the most is our flags that we hang up on the back porch. Each flag represents our schools:
USC: Les
Wofford: Tate
Dutch Fork: Artie
Clemson: Matthew
Erskine: Me

So tomorrow we begin another adventurous week full of tradition and I am SOO excited!!
