last week was our annual family trip to north myrtle beach. we left saturday mid-morning and began the four hour road trip to our salty and sandy destination. while i have been doing a lot of traveling this year, derek has not. this was his first real vacation. and it was nice to have a vacation with a husband/dad in attendance.
here’s my account of the travels and the first whole day.
we arrived around five pm. settled in. went out for some dinner. grocery shopped. and did a little late night swimming. and called it a night to get ready for a big long day at the beach in the morning.
the first day (sunday) was beautiful. and all week, low tide was during the time that we were out (mid morning and early afternoon) and these wonderful little tidal pools were formed. especially wonderful for those of us that don’t like the giant ocean sneaking up and knocking us down (hazel). the anna baby was a fan, too.
we found out that there was a special at medieval times, where on the weekends, each adult ticket got a free kid’s ticket. coupled with hazel being free if she sat on a lap, we decided to give it a go. so, we got all cleaned up and ready to go. but first. a pic of my people.
we gave each kid $15 to spend at medieval times, but derek also brought a few toys along that they could purchase with their money. both kids opted for a daddy store toy. isaac got some more minecraft figurines. anna went for this lego bird set. it’s for ages 12 and up. she needed help a couple of times, but mostly rocked it out herself. she was so proud.
and that brings our first day to a close. i’ll be back with more soon!
