Myrtle Beach 2011

Ok so this post is a little past due... but hey at least I am finally sitting down to write it right?

Michael and I spent the last weekend of July in Myrtle Beach, SC with his dads family for their family reunion. I was very excited! It was my first time in Myrtle Beach and our first out of state trip together. The drive was very long and even got a little lonely on I-20 - but we arrived late that Thursday afternoon.

We stayed with his Aunt Connie and Uncle Jim. They have a beautiful home and I am thankful to them for opening their home up to us. My favorite part of their home was their master bath. Haha! They have an awesome shower that had all kinds of jets in the walls and a great big tub! The floors were even heated, if you wanted them to be! :)

Friday afternoon, we went to the private beach lot Connie works Michael and I had a beach to ourselves. The house is absolutely breathtaking! It has an elevator in it and a pull out drawer refrigerator built into the island in the kitchen. While there, I got in a rafting tube thing and rode some waves. A great big one came in, and knocked my glasses off my face - so I had to get new ones.. what an adventure that was!

Saturday night, Connie and Jim took us and Michael's parents to the boardwalk. It was really neat. We rode the SkyWheel and went out on Pier 14. It's so relaxing out there. I cannot wait to plan another trip to go back. We had a great time.

Here I am sitting on the Beach! That's the beach house behind me!

Michael playing on the beach! I love my big kid!

This is the SkyWheel. It changes into all kinds of colors and designs at night! I loved it! The cars on it are completely enclosed and even have air conditioning! :)
This is Pier 14 which goes  out over the ocean. Its really beautiful. Next time we go visit I would like to be on the pier early in the morning to see the sunrise! <3

And just for giggles I'll end the post with a picture of my new glasses!

 Happy Reading!
