Beach trip

I'm sorry I've neglected you! I didn't mean to, I've been out of town. I intend to catch up. This post is about our beach trip, and in a few days I'll backtrack a bit. Like I said, we just got back from Myrtle Beach. We went to celebrate my grandparents' 50th anniversary! Thursday night we had an actual anniversary party, with a cake, a little variety show, and a slideshow with pictures from when they were kids up to now. It was a wonderful trip. The weather was just perfect, it wasn't too crowded, and we all had a lot of fun together. I have a great family! We were there for a week. It was really nice to have a chance to relax. I haven't been able to do that in awhile. We spent all but one of our days at the beach and pool, and at night we all visited or played games. I didn't do any knitting (gasp) but it was a much needed break! Here are some pictures.

Happy Anniversary Nanny and Granddaddy!
I got an awful sunburn the first day, hence the shirt.

Glad you had a great time on vacation. I get a burn (usually my nose) every summer so I can feel your pain. OUCH!

Happy anniversary to your grandparents!! Sounds like you had a nice trip. I love the beaches of the Myrtle beach area. We've had a couple of vacations at Surfside Beach and I loved the water...it's so warm compared to the beaches here at Cape Cod. (I was spoiled forever) :)

Awww, it looks like you had a blast! I got sunburned just from standing out side for a bit :-( I know how it feels.
