Beach Day

Shane and I took the girls to Myrtle Beach again. We left Tuesday night at 7:30 and then came home Thursday afternoon. A really quick trip. Especially for a 3 1/2 hour drive! Anyway...the girls were really great. The fell asleep on the way there but as soon as we got there Natalie was wide awake because she was so excited about being at the beach. We got them back to sleep at midnight and thankfully they slept till after 8. :) The whole reason we went was to meet up with Shane's friend who is getting deployed. He and his wife have a two kids the same age as our girls and also a little baby boy. It was really nice to spend time with them. The kids had fun playing together at the beach making sand castles and playing in the ocean. We spent pretty much all day Wednesday on the beach just leaving to eat meals. Thursday morning we ran back out to the beach for about a half hour and then back to the hotel for baths and packing up all our stuff to get out of the hotel. We stopped at Johnny Rockets for lunch before heading home. The girls love when the waiters start dancing. They get up in their seats and dance right along with them! It was a crazy trip but we had fun and I'm glad we were able to spend some time with the Cook family.

I'm glad you had a great time at the beach, even though it was such a short trip. I sure wish we could have been there with you. It was a lot of fun when we were there. It's amazing to see the difference in Natalie and the water. She was so afraid last time and this time she looks so comfortable. It makes me happy. Glad to have you home. Love you. Daddy
