Myrtle Beach Getaway

There is nothing quite like a spur of the moment getaway that can jolt excitement into your life. But when you attempt this with two toddlers under 3 & a half, you might just be crazy :) My adventurous hubby suggested that we find somewhere on the beach over Easter weekend and have some much needed soul refreshing at the ocean. I don't know about you, but whenever we get a chance to be by the ocean we jump on it. It is amazing how the beauty and power of the sun, sand and surf all collide and order out  your priorities "oh so well"  all while filling your heart with gratitude and love for Gods creation like it was the very first time.

We ended up booking two nights on Myrtle Beach a day later we hopped in the car and made the 4 hour road trip down south. The ride was amazing!!! North Carolina you seriously are beautiful. Spring time here literally bursts with every imaginable hue of green. While wild flowers and plants spring up so fast yet gracefully, it makes you want to snag them up and decorate every square inch of your house with flowers, or at least it makes me want to :) 

We stopped by Savannah Playground enabling park. I have to say IT IS A MUST if you are planning a visit to the Myrtle Beach area with children under 12! My kids were so sad to leave. They had so many awesome modern slides, mist machines, huge swings that were on tracks making them literally like amusement park rides! The ground was synthetic turf, which makes running around a play ground ten times more enjoyable.

Once it was time to check into our hotel we threw our bags into our room and booked it right to the beach.

We ended up having a pretty laid back time. We would wake up, make our 18 cups of coffee :) and head out to the beach each morning, this had to be my favorite time each day. I love seeing my girls take in all the excitement of the sand & water. Daddy helped make approximately 10,000 sand castles and zero survived two little girls and their new found love of knocking them all down :) 

But the best part was making unforgettable family memories (like the one pictured below) 

p.s. the ladies matching sweatshirts are from Childhoods Clothing and are THE BEST sweatshirts I have found. (this is not an advertisement for them, we just love their quality items)
