Myrtle Beach 2015

Last week, we took our first vacation of the year. We went back to Myrtle Beach, just as we've done the past few years. My husband's boss owns a condo and let's us stay there. It's located at a nice resort community with beach access and a lot of pools, including an awesome splash pool and lazy river. The condo also has a full kitchen, so we made our meals at the condo and left the resort only once to play miniature golf. The kids really enjoy going there, and have gotten used to the area.
 
The day after arriving at Myrtle Beach, we made our first trip to the ocean. Bridget was looking forward to gathering shells. She did this for maybe 15 minutes before she realized she wasn't as scared of the ocean as she was last year. Soon she was out there jumping in the waves with George (and a few grownups, too).
 

 
This was Liam's very first trip to the beach. He started off fine, until he started putting shells in his mouth. He was not happy about us taking the shells away from him, and then proceeded to run his sandy hands all over his face, which didn't feel good either. He was done with it all a few minutes after we got there.


Daddy thought it would be a good idea to dig a hole deep enough for it to fill with some water. Liam played in his private salt water pool for awhile, splashing in the water, playing with beach toys, and pulling himself up and walking along side the edge of it. Then he was ready for a nap. I wrapped him in a towel and held him while he slept.


In the meantime, George took over Liam's spot and played in the sand, along with running back and forth to the ocean.


That first day was the only time we went to the beach. I didn't feel like holding a grumpy and sandy Liam anymore, so we spent the rest of our swim time at various pools. I know that Bridget and Liam enjoyed the pools more, and George was indifferent about it. This year, Bridget was old enough to go on the slides by herself, while George still needed an adult to go with him. Bridget must have gone down the slides 100 times.

 
George and Liam enjoyed being on the lazy river.
 
 

Another highlight of the trip was playing miniature golf and Bridget making her very first 'hole in one'. In fact, she was the only one who did this. I blame the hot weather for the rest of us not doing so well.


George had a blast just trying to get the ball in, even though it took forever. We just kind of played around him. He was cute to watch though.
 
 
It was nice to get out of town for awhile. I felt refreshed and rejuvenated when we arrived home that I even began doing laundry and cleaning the floors. Then I exhausted myself and am in need of another vacation.
