not your typical charleston pics

These photos are a collection of things we saw on our trip to Charleston last weekend. We headed there for the family reunion, but couldn't resist taking these other photos to share with you. It was so blogworthy that even Dave commented on how these would end up here.

We saw this billboard after crossing onto the Isle of Palms. I almost fell in the floorboard of the car laughing and Dave helped me capture it out the window. This was everyone's favorite phrase of the trip. Perhaps I should explain that the Piggly Wiggly grocery store has been a staple of southern life for years. The HQ and it's founding family live in Charleston.

And at a seafood restaurant we ate at Jordan spied this hilarious version of the claw game. I can honestly say that I've never seen anyone catch their dinner this way.

William in Arby's (we were eating lunch in a hurry before leaving town on Sunday) with his magic book. He carefully read and followed a trick in the book with a straw paper and then exclaimed that the book was a "HUGE dissappointment" and not "what was claimed" to which Dave and I replied that life was a little like that in all ways. ;-)

Jordan found a sign that was meant just for her in downtown Charleston. Thanks goodness she didn't feel the need to shop there.

Love Piggly-Wiggly! They used to have one in Mt. Jackson, VA but sadly it's been gone a while.
