Yes, we're having a ball! - The Rancho Commons — LiveJournal
Note to self: no whining, no slacking
Yes, we're having a ball!
We are having a great time here in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! Here are some pics of the boys going in the water (yes, in November!) and of our accomodations. I put them behind a cut so you can skip them if you are short of bandwidth today.

Vacation is any place there's a DVD player!

View of the deck

Boys on the deck

The first steps in the cold Atlantic. Evan is old enough to remember being here before, but this is Josh's first memory of it.

No hesitation whatsoever!

Allie? Not so much!

Trust me, my feet hurt it was so cold, but they didn't even complain.

It went in my nose!

This is the living room and the sliding doors out to the deck, viewed from the kitchen.

Ocean view

Evan, post swimming and concerned at his nakedness.

The vacation web portal. Note: one downside is there is only one cat5 hook-up in our living quarters and NO wireless. MAJOR bummer!

Murphy bed that the boys sleep in, alongside the kitchen.

The kitchen!

Today we are going to the Ripley's aquarium (we've been there before and it's awesome!) and we plan to take pictures at the indoor pool/lazy river/water slides tonight.
And yes, I've spent an hour on the treadmill so far while on vacation!
More Pics to come!

What an awesome spot, Bruce! I can't believe you guys went in the water. It must be insanely cold. Fun times :D

Please wish Allie a very happy birthday for tomorrow. I trust you men are going to spoil her rotten? ;-)

We are spoiling her with a 4.5 hour drive back home. She's thrilled at the thought, I'm sure. But, we've had a major good time while here!

We went to one of those "no pressure" (Very High Pressure) "free" weekends at a condo time-share place a few years ago and the guy that was pitching it to us kept saying, "The Canadians will come down here in January (to rent your time-share from you) and they think it's summer!" We didn't buy his pitch, but maybe he had a point after all.

I went in with the boys yesterday (up to my waist - no "swimming") and it was doable, though not anywhere near what I'd consider "fun" or "pleasant."
