.My Summer is Now Complete.


I FINALLY got to feel sand between my toes and salt water on my skin!

Our great friends Kevin and Mandy invited us on their mini vacation to Myrtle Beach to celebrate Labor Day weekend. It was the first time Adam and I had ever been and we left wanting more. This post is simply to share some of our adventures and photos with you, enjoy!

Our long weekend was exactly what we all needed to end Summer on a high note! 

Have you ever been to Myrtle Beach?--How did you end your Summer?


  1. I grew up going to Myrtle every summer! Now that I'm old and married, we don't go very often because we like to explore different places whenever we get the chance to take a vacation. But Myrtle will always be near and dear to my heart (although wowie, what a tourist destination now!). I'll never forget one Myrtle vacation in particular. I was about 4, and I had gone down with my grandparents for a long weekend. I met a little friend on the beach and we started playing in the sand. Next thing I knew, I looked up and couldn't find either of my grandparents. I freaked out, thinking I had wandered away from our hotel or something so I just started walking down the beach. I walked and walked, looking for our hotel because I knew what the logo looked like. Finally, an older lady noticed that I was walking by myself and asked me if I was lost. I started crying and said yes, so she took me to the lifeguard stand and I knew the name of our hotel (The Wayward Winds) and our room number. The lifeguard drove me in his little car straight to my hotel and carried me up to our room, where my grandparents were kneeling beside the bed praying while the police officers were forming a search party. Turns out that my grandmother thought my grandfather was watching me and vice versa. What I took away from that experience is that it is so so important for children to know the name of the hotel when on vacation, and their room number, if possible! Whenever I go on vacation with kids, I drill it into their heads until they get so annoyed with me. But anywho, I'm glad you had a nice time - there's tons of stuff to do there!

  2. Oh Myrtle Beach looks fantastic!! Beach time, amusement park, great food, and all with great friends...sounds like a perfect mini vacation to me :)
