Summer Time and Myrtle Beach

It is summer time. And we always take a summer vacation together. This year we saved up points for flight made plans and booked everything to go visit family in Florida where I am from and where my husbands sister now lives as well. But weather had a different idea. A tropical storm was coming through and with things unsure of where it will land and when we got on with the airline and they switched our flight to Myrtle Beach S.C. which still was ok because my mom is from there and I have a brother and his kids in N.C. plus my parents just bought a condo there so we had free lodging! Our was a lot funner than we thought it would be. What would we do for a whole week. Well as a kid I went every year back there but couldn't remember. There was so much to do and it was great just getting back to the beach again I haven't been in almost 8 yrs. We had beach time. The girls I thought would be scared or hate it. You couldn't keep them away. Every morning they wanted to go back. The boys had fun skim boarding body boarding and doing the teenage beach thing of picking up chicks. We went to the pool everyday since there was one at the condo. We even bought a metal detector to find some stuff. It was a lot of fun and to the kids you would have thought we found buried treasures. My husband had always wanted to go deep sea fishing. He was so excited got all the gear got his lunch packed headed out at 5:30am for an 11 hr trip and was sick for the first 5 hrs got 2 fish on the line but never got them to the boat. So, he wasn't happy and I don't know that he will go again. Then my brother came down for a few days with his wife and 2 girls. One is 3 and she was in for an awakening with my girls. They played for a bit. But when it was time for pics my daughters a posing and she is looking at them like they are crazy. All in All Carter Summer Vaca was a blast!
