Then we ate lunch at Smoke BBQ.  It was soooooo yummy.

Later that afternoon Jonathan, Karen, Parker, and I went to Boone Hall Plantation. 
This is the avenue of the oaks leading into the plantation.
These are the original slaves houses from the plantation.

Thankful to JuJu and PaPa T for keeping these crazies so we could do a little sightseeing!
