End Of Summer Beach Trip

click on any collage to enlarge photos

The boys start back school on Tuesday, so as one last hurrah to the summer we went to Myrtle Beach for a long weekend.

We spent each morning-afternoon on the beach-- the weather was FANTASTIC!
Jimmy found a big starfish and then later on we found a little crab and a dead puffer fish. The starfish was by far the biggest hit with the boys!

Spencer and I spent an evening touring the aquarium. He LOVED LOVED LOVED it. I complained about the $30 admission but he really enjoyed I guess it was okay.

Even though we relaxed all 4 days, and didn't really over plan or try to squish too much into the long weekend-- we had PLENTY of things for the boys to experience: miniature golf at Dragon's Lair, rides, rock climbing, trampoline jumping, fresh seafood, shopping, frozen custard, and lots and lots of goofing off!

and don't fall for that bloody finger/pain picture in the collage. Spencer LOVES the joke/prank shop at the beach and buys a new joke each time. This time he bought the old pin through the bloody finger gag....where does he get this warped sense of humor??

And what is a family vacation without our traditional "butt ugly family" pictures? Gotta love goofy pictures for the scrapbook!
