But that's life right?!?!? Things don't go as planned. Kids get sick at the least opportune times and we have to deal with it. It gave me a glimpse at what our future will be like.....if we plan to have a big family we will have to deal with the inevitable ups and downs of life with many different personalities and coping abilities. And once our kids are older and are better able to handle canker sores, diaper rashes and fungal infections we'll have to deal with teenager 'tude. Joy. I don't think this bad experience has tainted us from future vacations, but I definitely don't feel the need to go anywhere in the near future. We've been home 5 days and Maddie has just started eating solid foods and both girls are just starting to sleep through the night again. We're still recovering from our beach vacation.
Other than the obvious difficulties, the weather at Myrtle beach was lovely, the ocean was beautiful, the pool was warm and we spent most of our time there. We ate good food, did a little bit of sight seeing and went to an awesome carnival and rode a gazillion rides. I didn't take many pictures because really....what fun is taking pictures of children that look like this:
But I did get a few good shots in between the insanity and so I have those to share below. One thing I really appreciated about this vacation/learning experience was Dan! His patience amazes me and his ability to make lemonade out of lemons is very handy. I have the best husband around, and even if they don't realize it now, my girls are VERY lucky to have Dan as a daddy. Cheers to summer vacation!
We stayed there for 6 hours and rode SO many rides!
Maddie was tall enough to ride the big rides and seriously went on crazy fast carnival rides. She was only scared on the dragon swing and only when it was fully vertical.
Crazy thrill seeking child!! :o)
