Myrtle Beach...Part 2 (AND ITS MY 200th POST!)

Hey Peeps! So I'm cramming the rest of my Myrtle Beach pics into this one post...and believe me, this took FOREVER to upload..so you better look at them all!!!...kidding!

We never did any "dress the kids up and take pictures in the sand" days. Here is the closest I got. One afternoon late we walked down to the beach to play around, I tried to get a cute photo of the cousins...here is Maddox, Margaux, Sloan, and Cruz:

How sweet is this....holding hands...(okay, so I made them do this, but its still a cute pic, right??)

Sweet baby face! He is holding a little soft shell crab!

Sloan wasn't as excited to hold it:

We went to Broadway on the beach one night and it was AWESOME! Our plans were to eat at Margaritaville, but the wait was FOUR HOURS!!!!! Um, no thanks! Instead, we made a HUGE mistake and walked to some place called Masons. I was absolutely horrible...horrible food, horrible service, horrible drinks, and horrible kids...well, that part wasn't their fault, but my kids were horrible!
These guys got their own booth!
This guy had ENOUGH of being stuck in this slow restaurant...so Grandad came to save the day...this is Cruz's favorite trick: He goes UP...... And then flips down.....
(hey, whatever keeps em happy)
After that we walked around the boardwalk and looked through all the shops. There was the cutest candy store called "sugar". I found the perfect candy bar for David and surprised him with it.....

As we walked around the kids found a stand that sold tons of light up toys...Margaux got a butterfly on a stick:

Cruz got a spinny-light-thing:

And Maddox got a sword!

Then it was time for the fireworks show...it was going on 10pm, so we were all getting tired and cranky...but we toughed it out...and it was so worth it. Cruzy loved the show...he watched it from Grandad's shoulders:

Next day...back to the beach...everyday the kids got a little more brave with the water. Cruz was sportin his fedora again...and I must say, it was stinkin cute! oh, and he was still carrying around that shovel!

A few nights later we went back to Broadway on the Beach and ate at Planet Hollywood. It was a few nights before my birthday, so my dad told the DJ. They put this up on the big screen and played the requested song, JayZ's Forever Young...my fave!

Then the dancers came out and had all the kids come do the electric slide. We made my nieces get up and do it. They are big time dancers, but I think this was a little embarrassing...just look at Sloans face..haha!!!! Then we walked back over the the boardwalk and spent the night riding carnival rides. We also met up with my friend Rachel and her family. They were in Myrtle Beach the exact week we were. We let the kids play and ride rides.

We spent a lot of time at the little boat ride. Cruzy loved it. Everytime we would pull him away he would keep pointing back and saying "boat! boat! boat!". It was too cute...so we just kept letting him ride it over and over. Here he is all alone on the boat ride having a blast!

Back to the beach the next day. Maddox requested to be buried in the sand:
Then Cruz wanted the same thing, but that little stinker wouldn't sit still long enough!Our resort had the most awesome splash park. Just look at the photo below. We ended up here every day! No part of it was deeper than 1 foot! Perfect for my age kids. See that big bucket on top? It fills with water and dumps over every few minutes...the kids just loved this!

Sunbathing together...Maddox loves his Margaux!

The last night we were there a huge thunderstorm blew in. We sat out on the balcony and counted at least 6 funnel clouds! We kept waiting for one to spin down and form a water spout. When it finally did we acted like rednecks and cheered! Cheap entertainment y'all!
Well, that's it for Myrtle Beach...needless to say, it was a great trip. Thanks to my Dad for taking us...he does every year. Maybe next year we will be back to Gulf Shores. We can only pray for that place and the huge clean up effort they are facing.
And side note, this is my 200th post...I should do a give away or something...but I'm not that good of a blogger! But I love ya'll!
