Finally a vacation!

We've been really needing a vacation since Dresden died. We talked about it a bit in September/October, but just never did it. I don't think it was the right time. I think we needed to be home, and learn to live without the baby we were supposed to have, before trying to escape. Well, now IS the right time! Shaun found out that he gets 5 free days off when/if the baby is born from work. Since he wants to take 2 full weeks off, that means he only has to use 3-4 days of vacation (since his time off will (SHOULD) incorporate Labor day). Sooooo, we are driving down to Myrtle Beach! We have a 'condo' hotel with a bedroom, living room, kitchen and most importantly - ocean front balcony!! The average temp there in March is 68, which is perfect comfortable weather. We are planning to go on a dolphin watching cruise, hiking in a state park (where we may get to see some gators!!) relaxing on the beach, dipping our feet in the chilly water.(since it's cold.. but even if it was warm, I'm scared of sharks!! so it'd probably still just be knee deep!) hehe There are multiple pools, including a children's pool at our hotel - the outdoor ones are open and heated too. I'm really excited.. and even more excited that we don't have to wait too long! This is my kind of vacation planning - QUICK turnaround!! :)

We are so glad that all of you are taking a vacation. You will have so much fun. You will probably have to pull Shaun and Gwen out of the water every day. Plus you have a kitchen, how great. Just relax and enjoy yourself.
