Myrtle Beach, SC

Road trip, movies in the car, dance music, quiet reading, Hunting Beach State Park, tire swing, pretending to be an eagle sliding down the slide, Bojangle's (2x), gorgeous sunrises, fresh ocean air, sandy faces, chasing seagulls, building sand castles..only to be stomped down, picking up shells for Ivey, the smell of sunscreen, Tate falling asleep in the backpack, cold water, fresh seafood, chasing waves, playing with cousins: H1, H2, and H3 (Haywood, Hallsey, Hamilton), drawing creatures in the sand, visiting the Aquarium, holding horseshoe crab, seeing sawfish and sharks, touching stringrays, Fuddruckers(yum), Tate bouncing in his swing,watching fudge be made, dancing and singing at "the Fudgery," Owen flying on the trampoline thingy, celebrating our Anniversary, competing with my brother as to who is "wiser"..I definately am due to my glorious gray coverage, washing that gray away:-), enjoying pure laughter, dinners with family, put-putting, sushi, lazy river, Owen swimming like a fish, Griffin jumping in the pool like a frog, and Tate grinning from ear to ear, joy, and meeting Vinson cousins at Aunt Jenna's wedding shower
Dear Jesus, thank you for the refreshment we found while away. Time with each other was joyful and I praise you for family; near and far. Thank you for the beautiful creation you made for us to enjoy and to anticipate the indescribable beauty of Heaven one day!
