Come on Homeboy- Eric Church

Today was another family adventure! We used to go on these all the time when I was younger, you never knew where you were going to end up, but wherever you did end up, ended up being a great place!
Today we headed hours up the road, passing small towns, lot's of fields, crops, pastures, cows and horses..stopped on the side of the road and got two Watermelons, and we ended up going to Blackville. We found a Spring, so we got out our jugs, (noooooot those kind of jugs!), and started filling them up with some of the best tasting water I think I have ever tried! It was so crisp, and cold. It felt filling. I was totally rejuvenated by it! We all kinda just sat around the spring, drinking water, and talking to locals who were coming to fill up their jugs of water.
After that we headed to Aiken SC, ate at good ol' Ryan's, dad loves to eat there. It's a big country buffet, for all of you who do not live in the south.. you eat a lot of starch, you can throw a salad in there, and don't forget the ice cream!
After Aiken, we headed on over to Augusta GA, and went walking at this really quiet park/lake. There were people fishing, diving, kayaking, walking. It was really relaxing. We saw a lot of different kinds of ducks. One duck was hurt, he was missing the top part of his beak, and his feathers were all messed up.. I felt really bad for the little Mallard.
After we watched the ducks, we headed to Publix, got some pine apple, and headed back to our humble home.
It's always good to go out traveling with the family for a day.
I think we should do it more often!

 Do you go on little day trips with your family?
