Visit from My Dad and Evie

I have been looking forward to this visit for some time. My Dad and Evelyn flew out last week for 10 days. We had so much fun and it was so great to have them here. My Dad did so many projects inside and outside, I loved it. They were the biggest help and lifesavers this month, since Josh is in Alaska. We stayed in Charleston for a few days. We rode a carriage through old towne, went to the beach, ate delicious seafood, went to Fort Sumter, shopped and much much more. Olivia were very sad to see them go, because it was back to just the two of us. Hopefully Josh will be home in 3 days. Thanks again Dad and Evelyn for coming out to see us, we loved every minute.

4th of July

The 4th of July was a bit different around here. There was no parade to go to, and Josh had to go into work for a few hours. Needless to say it was not the best day ever. We had a few people from our ward over for a barbeque and some REAL fireworks. Lets just say nothing is illegal so we had quite the show. Olivia really enjoyed them and was not scared one bit. I really missed being home but it was fun getting to know new friends.

Our getaway to North Myrtle Beach

Will Josh leaving to Alaska soon, we decided to take a little weekend trip to Myrtle Beach. It was so fun, we stayed in The Embassy Suites right on the beach, 10th floor. The view was absolutely gorgeous. They had a fun kid waterpark, nice pools, and of course a great beach. Olivia loves the water, sand, and waves splashing in her face. She definitely takes after me. Being away from home on the 4th of July is hard, so it was nice to getaway and make some memories of our own.
