I neglected my blog for an entire week while our little family spent a week away at the fabulous Myrtle Beach! We started counting down the days back in July! I cannot express how wonderful it was to pack our car to the very max, drive for 3 hours late into the night while our sweet wee one's slept, and arrive in a place where responsibilities consisted of making sure the children were fed, clothed, and that we relax! We are so thankful for this time...truly a retreat. We enjoyed the time spent with "mimi" and "peepaw" and are grateful to them for opening their home to our crazy crew!
Enough chit-chat... Here's a look into our week away.
Can you tell how much baby LJ loved the sand?
A little view from the balcony (one of their favorite places to play)...And yours truly (mother hen) was not far off!!
Can you believe how fast this one is growing?
Noah loves Myrtle Beach...isn't he a cutie?
On our very last day, we took S and N to a painting class. Most everyone had gone home on Sunday, so we had the room to ourselves. Savannah chose to paint an ice-cream cone magnet and Noah...a turtle magnet.
The ladies who helped us then dried the magnets and applied a glaze to them making them glittery and shiny! They were lovely!!
What a wonderful trip. And we came home with only 1 load of laundry (thanks to the washer/dryer in the condo!) It was so good to have Dolan with us for this amount of time! Missed him so much on his day back.
Thankful for memories made with our precious family on our week away.
As for today, our responsibilities are greater and we aren't nearly as relaxed...but the memories really are just as precious!
