Splashing in the Ocean at Myrtle Beach

preschool corner

We spent this morning waiting for the truck to be fixed.  It ended up being some valve that locked up and needed to be replaced but it was done before lunch time.  So Daddy and I took the kids to the beach for a little while, while Stephanie went to a water park with a dance friend who is staying in the same hotel we are.

The biggest surprise (to me anyway) was that Georgie - who usually hates even a drop of water on his face and has never been very adventurous - LOVED the ocean.   He splashed right in to the surf and had a great time jumping waves.

Vicki ended up getting completely drenched right away and wasn't too happy about it....

so she sat out for a while making sand castles.
Meanwhile, Daddy took Georgie out body surfing.

Vicki did eventually get back in to the water...
while Georgie sat out for a while practicing his letters in the sand.

Stephanie is dancing her two production routines tonight at 8:30 so we headed back to the hotel to relax.  I think we're going to be spending a lot of time at the beach this trip.  :-)


  1. Aww, i love that he practiced his letters in the sand!

  2. I love the body surfing picture. I actually laughed outloud when I saw it. We went to the beach a couple of weekends ago. I wish that we could spend the entire summer there.

  3. We live less than two hours from the shore and we hardly ever go. We may have to start going more since the kids had such a good time. :-)
