Myrtle Beach

Something we promised the kids before Tyler deployed was a trip to the beach after he returned! We spent last week in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and it was glorious, indeed! We stayed at a condo right on the beach. It has an indoor and an outdoor pool available, also. We had a nice time frolicking on the beach, watching the Olympics, and playing games together. The sunrises were simply gorgeous. I absolutely love sitting by the ocean and listening to the waves rolling in. 

Silas was plum tuckered out from swimming in the ocean and then the pool. 

Calvin turned this scenic view into whimsy. 

Keith loved flying kites by the ocean. 

This is Tyler's sting from a jellyfish. Calvin and Silas were also stung. We witnessed two other nearby children that received jellyfish stings. The pain goes away quickly, at least. 

We played lots of dominos!

One day a storm rolled in! It was majestic! Every other day had perfect weather. 

I frequently found the kids on the balcony, just watching the ocean. I am convinced that it provided some good therapy for my kids - and for me!

The last sunrise of the trip. It was hard to say goodbye to the ocean, but we had a wonderful time and hope to see the ocean again one day soon. 

We discovered this brand/type of chips while on our trip. Tyler and I may be kind-of addicted. #youhavebeenwarned
