so some of you may have noticed that I havent posted for a little while.
Most likely no one noticed :)

Well we went on a vacation to Myrtle Beach with Daves family.
It was a week of fun and it flew by quickly!

Dave is posting our adventures on his blog I recommend going over there and reading throughout the week as he will be posting a few from myrtle beach there.

Daves family has been going to Myrtle Beach since he was little. I think his grandparents started it. Since I have known Dave they seem to have been going down every other year or so. I have been with his family on 3 trips there including this one.

We started off on our vacation by geocaching on our way down. This was fun and allowed Zeke to get some play time as well when we found a park with a swing :)

We left about 8:30 am and arrived at 5ish. We saw the sunset from Nana and Poppas condo. Daves sister and Family had a condo on the 11th floor, Daves parents were on the 6th and we were right above them on the 7th floor.

This was a great way to vacation. In the past they have all been in the same condo and sometimes it felt like you were on top of each other. I remember escaping on my own to walmart one year just to get out.

Now the condo was not set up quite how I expected. As soon as you opened the door you were in the bedroom. then came the galley kitchen and bathroom and then the living room with a balcony out to the beach. I understand that is so you have the best view of the beach. What I dont quite get is the straight into the bedroom- it was kinda like a hotel in that way.

Well we had zeke set up in the living room at night but he had his naps during the day in the bedroom. We did this so we had the better tv, comfortable chairs etc. during the day. Since the bedroom didnt have a door on it we were unable to leave or enter the condo without waking Zeke.

At night we would go down the one floor to visit with Daves parents. We had the monitor with us and were right by the stairs. At first I was a bit worried about this. but it worked out well for us to lock him in our condo while visiting Daves parents. We tested the monitor before we left him.
Does this make us bad parents? would you have done it?

He does go to bed at 7/7:30 so that would make for a long night.
He survived :)

We got a Date out of the deal too! Dave and I went to see Medieval Times. This would be the 3rd time for me and he 2nd for Dave but the first in Myrtle Beach (not that the story changes). We had a lot of fun!

Since we were all together just before the Canadian Thanksgiving we decided we would do a dinner together. We stared with a turkey and all the trimming then it went down to the rotisserie chicken at a grocery store plus trimmings to KFC for dinner.
We combined Thanksgiving and Zekes birthday.

It was a lot of fun to see Zeke get all messy and loving that sugar high! The crash happened quickly too since it was past bedtime!

hope you enjoy the pictures! You can click on them to be taken to the larger ones :)
