let's go to the beach, beach {myrtle beach vacation in photos}

Last week, my family took a 12-hour road trip to Myrtle Beach.
We've been here many times, and it always so relaxing. I think it has something to do with being at the beach, plenty of vitamin D and the lazy river. Mostly the lazy river though.
We stayed at the Bay Watch Resort in North Myrtle Beach. We have always stayed at this beach-front resort and it is perfect! I recommend Tower 3 {we stayed on the 15th floor this year} - it's close to the pool bar, the lazy river {my favorite!} and the baby pool {if you're traveling with a little one}. My mom found our 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, including a full kitchen and in-unit laundry, condo via Elliott Realty, a beach rental company she swears by and has used for years.
It was absolutely relaxing and it was great to have a solid week of family time. Well, until the ride home when my niece really, really, REALLY wanted out of her car seat for 3.5 hours straight. A 12-hour drive is a lot for a 10-month-old to handle. But we made it.
Here's what my week of vacation looked like:

6. An OOTD
7. We played a lot of Yahtzee. It's a family vacation tradition.
8. My sister and I sporting our beach hats at the pool bar.

I'm pretty jealous that the beach is so warm! We head out to the Oregon coast pretty frequently, but it is just too cold to get in. And I love a lazy river! My husband lost his wedding ring on one on our honeymoon though.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet
effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you've done a excellent job with this.

Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox.
Exceptional Blog!
