Beach Boy

We had an awesome time on our spur of the moment trip to Myrtle Beach! We were originally going to Charleston but we waited to book and the hotel rates shot up. We realized that an oceanfront resort on the Grand Strand was the same price as the Super 8 in West Ashley! How can you turn that down? I grew up there but hadn't been in years. I barley even recognized it and in a way it was a bit depressing. It just didn't feel like home anymore. We had fun though!Seth has always been a great traveler and didn't mind the drive.

Chillin' at the hotel.
Of course there was a cold snap and we could barely get on the beach. Luckily there were lots of heated pools including a lazy river, kiddie pool, indoor pool, three hot tub and three regular pools! I didn't think Seth would like the hut tub - boy was I wrong. He LOVED it and kept saying, "Let's get in the hot pool."

Of course, Daddy wanted to check out the Kiss Coffeehouse!

Seth loves Calamari and kept asking for "more squid."

The beach was so cold and windy! We only stayed on it for a few minutes. We walked to the surf and a tiny wave that just barely covered our toes somehow knocked Seth over. He was done! Back to the hot pool for us!

Our old house looks sooo different. It used to be brown with cream trim.

A trip to Myrtle wouldn't be complete with out some amusement rides!
