A Mother-Son Trip

Joe and I took a little drive to South Carolina to visit my old friend Krisie and her daughter, Lizzy. Lizzy was born a few weeks after Joe, and we can’t believe it’s taken us more than a year to get these two together.

Krisie was my bar manager when I bartended back in the late 90s. There was a time when 7 p.m. on a Friday night would have found us knee-deep in drink orders and yelling for someone to change the keg. But on this Friday night at 7 p.m., we were elbow deep in bathwater, scrubbing our babies down before putting them to bed.

Funny how things change!

Lizzy and Joe got along famously and even slept in the same room. Here they are enjoying a dip in the pool:

And here is Joe, finding out how much fun Krisie is:

This weekend, we’ll have another road trip — but this time Daddy gets to come along. More on that later!
