Beach Trip 2

Here are more pics from our trip to Myrtle Beach. Jake and Papa woke up around 6 a couple of days for walks on the beach and to go fishing. Jake loves to fish, but they didn't really catch anything. Another day we visited Alligator Adventures. There were many alligators and other animals and we even saw them feed the gators! One night we went to Broadway on the Beach. There was an amusement park, many shops, and restaurants.

Trip to the beach, part 1

A couple of weeks ago we went on vacation with my parents to Myrtle Beach. My parents haven't had a vacation in over 15 years, so it was nice for them to get away and fun for us too! There were so many things to do there, especially for kids. One day we went to Brookgreen Gardens and walked around and took the shuttle to the zoo. We also took a boat ride down a canal in the gardens and saw a few alligators. More pics to come!

On our way to the beach!

First day of preschool for Ben

Ben started 3 year old preschool August 9th. I started a job teaching pre-K at a church. Ben is able to go there for school too! it is so nice. I work Mon-Thurs. and Ben goes to school Tues. -Thurs. He seems to love it and his teacher is really nice!

Here is Ben with his bag Aunt Gina made him when he was born.
He loves his bag because he tells me he doesn't want a backpack.

For some reason he wants to put his hand
up to wave when we tell him to say cheese
