Family trip to Myrtle Beach

Wed-Friday last week, we went on a mini vacation to Myrtle Beach!

We haven’t been to the beach in over 10yrs!!

We had a great time and saw a bunch, played in the water- both the ocean and the hotel pool.

On Wednesday we went to Wonderworks, which is this crazy hands-on museum amusement park (not the ferris wheel)

Part of the tickets were a zipline and rope course for the older kids outside

Fun for both younger and older kids

and a VERY accurate Weather stone!

Then after that we went to the hotel (Embassy Suites/Hilton resort ON the beach!!)

Outside there was a lake and this speed boat that Dan was really drooling over (Wonderworks was across the lake so we saw it the day before also)

We walked right by the booth and just HAD to try it! (I stayed back with Anja) This thing was FAST!!

Friday morning we left the hotel and went to this Apache pier and tried to go fishing, but with hot, whiney kids it didn’t last long, but at least Dan tried it Winking smile

We all got a lot of sun and had a lot of fun.

I didn’t take pics of the beach nor the pool, as I didn’t want to get sand or water on my phone, but we all had a blast!

What a wonderful family vacation, full of memories to be treasured forever. I have never been to Myrtle Beach, but thanks to you I now have it on my bucket list. Beautiful.

How does that building not fall?

OK, Was it my imagination or is the top of the first building wonky? I've spent ages looking at it to try and work out if it's just the angle of your shot or if the top is trying to slide over to the Big Wheel! Lol
The girls look beautiful (as always) & it looks like you all had a fabulous time. I'm happy for you, (but staying at The Hilton these days? Whooo hoo, Fancy Schmancy!!)
