May 27

My oldest son surprised us Sunday by inviting us to a cookout at Lansford Canal State Park.  It was a beautiful day.  He supplied all the food (though I did make a pan of S’mores Brownies) and waited on us hand and foot.  He wouldn’t let us do anything. The other kids fished while he made lunch.  After dinner we took a 3-mile hike along the Catawba River and the old canals.  Lansford has an interesting history.  The canals were completed in 1823 and were used to transport goods from the Piedmont to the Charleston and other southern cities. It was also part of the Revolutionary War history because both Cornwallis and Sumter used it to cross before and after major battles. You can visit the South Carolina Department of Archives and History or the South Carolina State Parks Website to learn more. We were very lucky to get to see the Rocky Shoals Spider Lilies still in bloom.  It was a wonderful time spent with my kids and I will treasure the day.

    Sounds like an interesting spot!

    And if you wouldn't mind posting that brownie recipe some time, my darling daughters would probably love to try it out!
