Our summer vacation

Last week we took a road trip to Myrtle Beach!


My whole family was able to go. Mom, Dad, brother and his girlfriend, Jamie and my sister and her daughter, Jayden. We had so much fun last year but only stayed 5 days so we made the trip longer this time and I'm so glad we did!

Any fear Weston had of the ocean is completely gone which means no more relaxing days at the beach for mom and dad.

On the third, it was our anniversary. My sister watched the boys for us so we could have a night out at Broadway at the beach. On our one year anniversary we took a trip to Myrtle beach, just the two of us and before we had kids. We basically had the same date...dinner at planet hollywood, coffee and walking through the shops. We don't get to go out much, but every time we do we have so much fun and it makes me wish we could do it more. Someday..
We of course spent a lot of time at the beach and the pools at our hotel

Fireworks are illegal in virginia, and Ben is all about some fireworks so any chance he gets to have some fun, he's taking it! I was proud of Kingston for participating even though I could tell he was a little nervous. I love that about him, how adventurous he is. Weston was not a fan!

We got to eat at some really great restaurants including the house of blues, a little italian restaurant called Luigi's...

And the four of us went to the pirates voyage dinner theater. If you're like us and love medieval times and things like that, you'll really like this! And it's written all over my kid's faces...

LOL to be fair, they spent the day at the pool and this was before the show. 
They were both wide eyed the whole time!

Family Kingdom is one of our favorite spots too. It's a little theme park right at the boardwalk. Kingston doesn't even hesitate, he just jumps on every ride!


Kingston keeps asking when we're going to go back to "the cation". 
I think we can all agree that we can't wait to go back!
