We went


We went to Myrtle Beach, SC to see cousins (and met some teenage second cousins!) of mine I hadn't seen since I was about 12.  We swam. We boogie boarded.  We dug.  We hosed off.  We jumped in pools.  We hosed off.  We ate.  We talked.  We played in arcades.  We won prizes.  We hosed off.  We saw jugglers.  We shopped in about 1,543 surf/beach shops cause Boo and Licious had money burning a hole in their pockets.  We hosed off.  We had milkshakes.  We danced.  We laughed.  And ultimately, we hosed off.

I hate the salty, sticky, sandy feeling of the beach the second you leave it.  In case you hadn't noticed, I hosed off often.

But I loved seeing long lost cousins.

So did my girls.

I am the same way with the sand and somehow you still bring it home with you.

Glad you had such a fun time.

The beach is one of my favorite feelings...as long as I am there. Do not like sand on my floors at all...but that doesn't mean I mop them.

Cousins are one of the greatest blessings we get this side of heaven:)

Glad your back safe and exfoliated.

Sounds like you had a blast--hosing and all. Sand is not my favorite thing either. It is like a tacky souvenir. Welcome back. L,A-
