Vacationing for our family might not be exactly what Greg expects. You see, I thrive on being busy, busy, busy.
When we went on vacation, we “slept in” until 9:30 or so. Swimming, resort activities, or visiting the park followed. Some days, there was shopping or seeing friends. We kept a fairly busy schedule, but nothing crazy. I think all days but one the kids got good naps, so we stayed on a good schedule.
One of the things I really loved about our recent vacation is that the resort had tons of activities scheduled throughout the week. There wasn’t time to do everything (like making candles or salt scrubs, taking a cooking class, or playing Wii), but we sure loved the things that we got to do.
As we walked to the Harvest Home Festival at Brookgreen Gardens, the kids were distracted by acorns strewn across the ground beneath a huge live oak tree. Arianna decided she was going to start an acorn collection right then and there. She had to pick particular acorns in a pattern I couldn’t figure out.
We are on the road and I am already listing my regrets from vacation. Next time, I promise myself I will…
* Enjoy a tub like this. Glad the kids did!
* Get a pedicure, massage, or other spa treatment. I need to destress more often.
* Zipline. We simply didn’t make it to Broadway for me to see the operation let alone chicken out.
“If that’s salt water, is this other side sugar water?”
It sure must be, Arianna. Love your logic.
Life seriously doesn’t get better than this, does it? We have been enjoying sunshine, dirt roads, sweet tea, swimming, and family. Arrr, matey!
You might have been able to tell from a few random posts of late (like crabbin‘) that we took a vacation a few weeks ago. Friends in real life can tell that it wasn’t the vacation I really needed, but it was still a getaway and a chance to be with Greg’s side of the family, including Aunt Rin who was home from Morocco.
One of the things about living in Myrtle Beach, I stayed away from tourist attractions. The one thing I really wanted to do in the three years I lived there was go crabbing at Myrtle Beach State Park, but as it was a tourist attraction, I stayed away from the opportunity. During our vacation, we took the opportunity on a semi-rainy morning and hit the beach.
