Labor day! 2010!


I'm a few days behind with every blog i post ! and i just wanted to post a few pics and a brush up on what we did this past weekend.
the husband had off Friday ( and of course monday too)and i assumed Doodle would have off school as well. Around 9 am i realized i was wrong ! she was way late at that point but i took her anyway. then later that night we threw together some plans to fallow the Smith family to Myrtle Beach!
so we left Friday night, arrived late, got a hotel and then in the morning switched hotels, because the first wasn't quite what we expected. i think both of our families were expecting something different. and while the first hotel wasn't very accessible i had allot more clearance in the room than i did in the next hotel. i was kinda thinking we would stay in a resort? and it was a resort just not the kind i was expecting. we got breakfast and hit the pool after the second check in. the girls loved it!!! i don't think Savannah had ever even been in a pool but she couldn't get enough !!! this last weekend the Carolina coast had been expecting a hurricane but it just blew right over that area i guess so it was beautiful pretty much the entire time we were there !!! and the beach was busy but not too crowded.
while we were there we checked out the Ripley's Aquarium (http://myrtlebeach.ripleyaquariums.com/) and then eat at Hard Rock Cafe. then the next day we went to the beach and to "Dolly Parton Dixie Stampede ( http://www.dixiestampede.com/myrtlebeach.php) witch was really entertaining! once again the girls were thrilled to death ! Savannah stood in her high chair the hole time !!! threw out the whole experience she squealed, clapped,pointed and cried "Whoooooooow " they didn't allow cameras in there or i would have taken a hundred pictures !
during our time spent back at the hotel i didn't get to go in the water or in the ocean at all . I'm self conscious,aquard and clumsy with my transfers and my chair is a pain to push threw sand . so i couldn't expect Scott to try to get me in the ocean. the life guards brought a beach chair out for me but i was told " You can take it right up to the edge but we ask that you don't take it out into the water" so basically it was just easier for people to push me around witch was REALLY great too but next time I'm gonna have to look into some different things.
also while we were down there i worked the hell out of our military discount! (for future reference all Ripley museums give you 75% off with a active duty military ID). it doesn't sound like we really did much once i put it all down but it sure felt like we did. I'm still recovering from the trip ! but it was allot of fun and so worth it! You only live once right? Scott i know had fun too!
being from central Florida the myrtle Beach area didn't really have anything that we didn't have back home or hadn't seed before but it was still really awesome! we don't get a chance to really do things like that as a family and for sure not since we have been married it was def a weekend i will remember an d hopefully i took enough pics that the girls will too! :)


the Girls after a long long day of fun in the sun!!!! they looked pooped!
