I just got back from the beach! I already wish I could go back. I took a trip down to Myrtle Beach SC with my kids. They had so much fun. This was my daughters first trip to the beach. She enjoyed the the sand and water. She took her sand toys and laughed while she was digging. Unlike most kids who laugh and run away when the waves of the ocean came in, she stood there and then chased them when they went out. As for my son he has always loved the beach. Actually he enjoys the beach but he loves the pool. The hotel we stayed at was called Sea Crest and it was perfect for a family with small children. It had 4 different pools and 2 lazy rivers as well as 2 Jacuzzis. One of the pools is like a water park with a water slide. And it was shallow enough to let my 1 year old daughter sit down and play in it, but enough activity that my 7 year old son could run around and not be bored. Like I said perfect. How often can you find one place that is suitable for those two drastically different ages. My son loved to go down the water slide over and over. It was such a nice and relaxing trip. I love to look out over the ocean and just listen to the waves, walking out on the beach in the morning before it gets to busy out. With the hotel having so many activities we really did not leave the hotel too much. The only place we did go to was Broadway at the Beach, which has always been one of my favorite places to hang out and walk around and eat. I took the kids to the Aquarium and while my daughter really didn’t care anything about it my son loved looking at the fish and sharks. His favorite part was seeing the eel swimming in the tank. I am so glad we made a last minute decision to go down to the beach. It was well worth the trip.
