This year we went to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with my husband's parents and brother-in-law the first week in October. Though the drive is long from central Kentucky, it was worth it. The weather was cool several days, so we were bundling in towels to keep the wind from freezing us when we came out of the water.
Our son loves the beach, and always requests it for every vacation. This spring we went to Jacksonville, FL and it was cool then, as well. Much preferred over the 90+ heat of summer, if you ask me!
We had a great time at Myrtle Beach, watching him try to body board for the first time, building castles with other children we ran into, and seeing the sights. We tried out the new Pirates of the Caribbean dinner show, where the Dixie Stampede used to be. It was well done and fun for all ages. We also went to Wonderworks, which we all enjoyed as well! A little shopping, lots of eating, a bit of gold and some bouncy houses rounded it all off.
Our next vacation will be between Christmas and the New Year, when we go to Gatlinburg with my mother's extended family. There are so many of us, we are crowded in 2 chalets! But its so much fun :) I'm already looking forward to it.
(I will try to post some vacation pictures when we get our computer situation straightened out!)
