My family took a vacation to Myrtle Beach mid August, pre-Irene. We took 2 days to drive down. We left on Friday after dinner and drove to Rocky Mount, NC. Saturday’s drive wasn’t bad at all except for the passing shower. When we finally arrived the rain had stopped so we went out on the beach with Briar since he hasn’t seen the ocean since October and probably doesn’t remember what it is. At first he was excited but when the water splashed his feet he got a little scared. He was unsure of what to think of it. Later Sam, my sister’s boyfriend, did a mock apparel photo shoot. The entire week was great, the weather was hot and the ocean temp was great! We spent a lot of time at Broadway at the Beach. It has great shops and food. I definitely recommend checking it out if you are ever there.
My mom won this in a raffle for the grandkids. It is a Dodge Charger decaled to resemble the local police in East Hempfield. Briar is still too small for it but at least he can grow into it. I can just imagine now all the photo ops to be had!
Briar’s first Christmas and our first Christmas having family eat at our house! Though I forgot to take food and dinner shots. (Oh well) We had my parents, Beth’s parents, my siblings and my two aunts and cousins over; it was a full house! In the morning Briar opened his presents that Santa left him. He did a pretty good job opening them but he did need our assistance. Then Beth and I exchanged our gifts to each other. Later, Briar opened his presents from his Nanny & Pappy and aunts & uncle. He got Vans, clothes, toys and a Radio Flyer wagon! Everyone raved about Beth’s dinner (which was great) and we all talked and played with the little guy. Thanks to Beth for taking some of the photos that I was in, she did a great job!
