Vacation, Finally!

We leave for our vacation tomorrow to Myrtle Beach, SC! We are staying for a week at a house on the beach and then spending a night in Charleston before heading home. This is our family reunion trip since we didn't get to go to Toledo for the Jamie Farr tournament this year. (It was cancelled this year due to a senior tour event there. It'll be back next year.) So my aunts, uncles, and cousins that live in Ohio are all coming to the beach too, and we are all staying in one big house together. We are looking forward to hanging out on the beach and relaxing, shopping, playing golf-Tony, and just hanging out with the family.

When we lived in Anderson, SC, we used to go to Myrtle Beach every summer because it was only a few hour drive. Since we've moved to Texas, I think we've only been back once or twice. One thing I remember as a kid is always going to the water park, Myrtle Waves, and we thought it was so big and the coolest thing. Then going back years later, we went to the water park and realized that is wasn't quite what we remembered. We did the whole thing in about an two hours when we used to spend the whole day there! It's be cool to see how things have changed even since the last time we were there.

Since we have the little man with us this time, it'll be a little different that's for sure. He definitely has his schedule that we keep if we want a happy baby. So, tomorrow is going to rock his world. We have to get up at like 3 am to leave the house by 4 am for our 6 am flight! Then we have another flight in Houston at 10 am to Charleston. We are not used to getting up so early anymore...thankfully! Last time we flew at that time in the morning, Cole got up to eat before we had to leave anyways and slept the whole time on the plane. I have a feeling he won't be sleeping much! He really is used to sleeping in his crib or in his car seat or stroller. So I will be really surprised if he sleeps on one of our laps. So we will pretty much have to leave the normal schedule behind tomorrow. Plus you're supposed to feed them during take-off and landing to help their ears. Cole will be eating off schedule then too. Oh well! I've heard that it takes a couple of weeks after going away on vacation to get back on your normal schedule. It's worth it though to spend time with everyone! We will take lots of pictures! Cole will be celebrating his 4 month birthday while we are gone too!
