Weekending: Exploring Charleston #5

This was all last weekend (and one day in the past week) because this past weekend, I didn't do much but take my son to his soccer game and hang out in our backyard!

We started out our weekend by going to Sullivan's Island and Fort Moultrie as soon as my son got out of school. We had never been to the Fort before. It is super easy to find and very inexpensive ($5 for a family).

 The Fort sits right on the water so we walked down to the beach. We saw lots of jellyfish!

 Down the road from the Fort, in either direction, there are two churches that are so pretty. One looks like it might be a house now (first pic below), not really sure... anyone know?!

On Saturday, we headed down to Patriots Point in Mount Pleasant to see the Budweiser Clydesdales.

I remember seeing them as a kid and they used to let you pet them. Not anymore though but they are still cool to see.
We then headed to lunch at one of Meg's favorite spots, Desano Pizza.

 This was our first trip to Desano so we tried the Margherita D.O.P. My son was a little unsure of the pizza at first because it is cooked in a woodburning oven. After his first bite, he said, "Why does the pizza taste like this?". He ended up eating several pieces though so you get use to the different taste.

After pizza, we relaxed for a little bit and then I took my kids and my daughter's friend to the Charleston RiverDogs baseball game. It was Bill Murray Tune Squad Jersey night so we got there early to make sure we got one.

 We had so much fun at the game. I forgot how much I love going to baseball games. We will definitely be going more. If you haven't been, go!! Ticket prices are very inexpensive and they have lots of great promotions. Tuesdays they have date night which is $20 for two tickets, 2 tacos, 2 drinks and nachos. How great is that?!

We didn't do much on Sunday and had a pretty quiet week. My husband was off on Wednesday while the kids were in school so we decided to head to Wannamaker County Park and go pedal boating.

 This was so much fun. We saw lots of baby turtles and one cute baby alligator. We did the hour rental and went around the lagoon about 3 times. Very inexpensive date - $1/each to get into the park, $5 deposit for rental (which you get back) and $6 for the hour. 

What were you up to this weekend?! Leave me a link if you blogged about it so I can check it out :)
Linking up with Ashley and Biana :)
