Myrtle Beach Days

Our week at the beach has been so much fun.  We only have one more day and then we are heading back to Charlotte.  It has been a long time since we were able to stay on vacation somewhere for a whole week, so this has been perfect and so relaxing.

We have spent every day on the beach building sand castles, playing in the ocean, and just hanging out.  David was not too sure about the ocean at first, but by the end of the week he loved it!  And Caroline enjoyed it too most of the time.  Several mornings we were able to get her to sleep in her little tent on the beach in the mornings and then Ashley could stay on the beach and not have to take her inside.  It was too hot to do that by the afternoon though.

Mark got to come down for a day or two so we were glad we got to see him!  He had been in Miami with friends the week before, so he couldn't stay long.  He needed to get back to work.  David loves playing with Uncle Mark!

One night we took a walk to get ice cream.  David has four "friends"--Doc McStuffins,  and Jake, Cubbie, and Izzy from the Neverland Pirates that he takes EVERYWHERE.  This night he brought Doc McStuffins to get ice cream with us.

Ashley carried Caroline in the baby carrier on our walk and she loved it!

We have been trying to take turns giving everyone a chance to go down to the beach or the pool while somebody stayed up in the condo and watched David and Caroline if they were too tired to go down or if they were napping.  One day David and I had a picnic on our balcony.  It overlooks the beach and the pool so we could see everyone having fun!

I got lots of baby snuggles from this sweet girl all week, too.  This week we learned that Miss Caroline LOVES music, dancing, and Michael Jackson!  She had a few dance parties with her Aunt Lindy this week that were so much fun!

We even went to dinner one night at Sticky Fingers.  That really is a pretty crazy adventure with a two year old and a baby!!  But they both did really well!

Steve and I have been going to the beach together since we were in high school.  We have so many fun memories of being here and it is so neat to think that now we are coming here with our grandkids and making even more fun memories!  Gosh, I feel old though!  :)
