A Few Myrtle Beach Vacation Highlights, Part 1

Friday, July 16, 2010

**(Part 1 - Yes that does mean that there will likely be several posts about this vacation. Kind of like when you were a kid and your relatives made you sit through a slideshow of their vacation.)**

For many months, stretching far back into this past winter, Mike has been longing for a vacation. Practically begging for one at times. We would discuss it, look over the budget, and conclude that it just was not the right time. But he never gave up. He continued to search. And one day Mike found it - an incredible vacation deal that even I could not argue.

But I did have another opposing point - I'm pregnant! Which translated for me means I am feeling a lot of tiredness and some morning sickness. The thought of vacation sounded like a lot of work, mostly in taking care of Cayman on-the-go. Mike asked me, if he made sure that part was all taken care of and would not be any more hassle, would I agree to this vacation?

In what I would call a delirious pregnant moment while laying on the couch nauseous I responded, "Sure. Just don't make me have to think anymore."

The very excited Mike began to plan and make arrangements.

In order to make sure traveling with Cayman was as easiest as possible he knew we needed babysitters. And who makes for better [free] babysitters than Grandparents! :)

So Grandma Sue, Grandpa Mark, and Aunt Sam came along with us!

Our time together was so much fun! And their help with Cayman provided the relaxing vacation Mike promised this would be. And Sue is the queen of snacks and she always seemed to be carrying something that sounded good to me to eat that helped curb my nausea.

The vacation was an incredible time and I am so glad Mike insisted we take it!

The 6 of us and all of our luggage packed into our van in route to the airport.

We flew out of Detroit, Michigan straight to our vacation destination:

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
