Myrtle Beach

This weekend Leah and I took the kids to Myrtle Beach. It had the potential to go so many directions, but it was really fun. The kids were crazy, of course. We spent most of the mornings in the indoor pool. Dexter was the hardest kid. He would sit on the steps and get out and run around the pool. I had to stay within a foot of him at all times. 

We hit the beach in the afternoons and it was great. 
 Overall Dexty did much better than I expected. He was pretty calm, except the ride home. We hit the beach before we left and he got a lot of sand in his diaper and got a bad rash. You can imagine how fun a screaming Dex was in the car.
 Piper is pretty independent these days. She is quite content doing things on her on and plays by herself a lot.
 The entire weekend Asher was determined to find a sand dollar. He was convinced he could buy a lot with it. He never did find one.
Bennett is such a character. He cracks me up so much.

 These two. I love them. They are spunky and smart and a handful. Our kids all got along so well and never got tired of each other. I hope they will be lifelong friends.
 This was as close of a family shot as I could get.

I'm so glad we went away together.
