Whew, life has been busy for us lately! Between Jason’s work, turning over the duplex, family obligations, and many, many other things, I have been feeling like our little family has just not been quite together. I decided a few weeks ago that we needed to get away for a quick weekend at the beach to just enjoy each other without all of the distractions of everyday life. Since it is still technically winter and pretty cold, I found a great resort at Myrtle Beach that features 2 indoor water parks. While it was a little strange for us to be at the beach this time of year, we had an absolutely wonderful weekend!
After playing at the water parks all day on Saturday, we went to Broadway at the Beach for an early dinner. We had a wonderful meal at the Key West Grill. Because of the time of year and the odd hour that we were eating, we were almost alone in the restaurant! For anyone who has been out to dinner with a 2-year old and a 3-year old, you will understand that this was ideal. My only regret is that I ordered a cup instead of a bowl of she-crab soup. It was so good and Maddie ate half of mine!
A few of the rides from the old Myrtle Beach Pavilion have been moved here. Charlie and Maddie loved riding the cars. Jason and I kept telling the kids, “When we were little the Pavilion…….” and finally it hit us that we were old! Myrtle Beach has changed a lot since were were little kids.
We had such a great time this weekend. I started to get the after-vacation blues when we got home today, then realized that I don’t technically have to go to work tomorrow and I got over it! I am so blessed to have the husband and kids that I do, and we live a really great life. I am so thankful for that. Sometimes it just takes a weekend to get over life!
