Over the second weekend in September, Joy and Bruce took all of us (that are currently living in North Carolina) on a trip to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina.
In true Kaden fashion we started out the vacation very cautious and uncertain:
Then, once acclimated, had a lot of fun:
1) My child will always have a better tan than me, even though he wears three coats of SPF 50.
2) There are perks to having a husband who isn't overly crazy about the beach. Almost every time Kaden was napping, Chad stayed in the hotel room with him, and I got to soak up the sun. Alone. With a magazine. With only the gentle sound of waves breaking on the shore disturbing what would otherwise be silence. Heaven.
3) There are few things I enjoy more than playing card games late at night with family. Even though they have to reteach me the rules every time we play, and even though I am seldom the winner, there is something therapeutic about laughing so hard I can't breathe.
4) Vacations never last long enough.
Thanks, Joy and Bruce for taking us with you! We had a great time!
