A new year of 10 on 10! I struggle month to month to get this up on time, but its a blessing by the end of the year to have taken, edited, and organized so many personal images for our family album.  In fact, my 2014 album is 99% done! That’s record timing.

This year we have some new photogs joining in the project, so make sure you click through the links and leave some comment love! Robyn Russell | Burlington, Ontario

Charleston, South Carolina, children's museum of the lowcountry

I love my hometown, Charleston, SC.  It is the reason (along with my mom!) that I am a history buff.  We spent the week after Christmas there and visited the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry for the first time.  The place is small, but they pack a huge punch with a ton of awesome, well designed, stuff.  Including this pirate ship.

They have a whole room dedicated to golfballs and ramps, jumps, levers, spirals, all demonstrating the laws of motion, momentum, inertia, friction, etc etc.  We had to PULL the boys away to see the rest of the place. And had to end with a few more rolls before we left.

Full model of weather, including a sun, moving clouds and legit rain over the mountains that flows through rivers, lock systems, dams, down to the coast and harbor of Charleston!

Dolphins to climb on.

We also took the boys to their first historic site in Charleston – The Old Exchange and Provost Dugeon.  Owen is really into real life pirates and they kept some pirates here in real life, so we took them! Here he’s looking over the original half moon wall of the walled colony of Charles Town. Charleston Town was the only walled colony in the Americas.

Liam could care less about the history, but he liked climbing… Charleston, South Carolina, children's museum of the lowcountry

Just a cool dungeon wall that led to the main street outside.  This is where they would have loaded and unloaded cargo for the ships through the custom house in its early days.
