Fun in the sun (and waaay overdue!)

We got very lucky and had the opportunity to go to the beach for the July 4th holiday. As always, I was desperately hoping for a beach trip this summer, but with Shayne's unreliable work schedule, we had no idea if we could work it out. I had two days off for the 4th holiday and miraculously, Shayne got his 8 day break at the same time. Finding this out the Monday before we planned to leave, we thought there would be no possible way we would find a place to stay, at least an affordable place for that matter. Shayne's dad always stays at the same place every time he goes to Myrtle Beach for bike week and typically gets a good bargain since he's a loyal customer. We figured it was a long shot, but we contacted him to see if he could hook us up and again, miraculously, they had a 3 bedroom condo available just a block from the beach, and for a very affordable price.

Shayne's mom, stepdad, sister and her boyfriend also went with us and we had a great week! It took Avery a while to get use to the beach and much opposite from last year, she could've cared less about the sand but was all about the water. The beach was very crowded but luckily we were unaware of the fact most of the time. The week definitely went by too fast and we can't wait to go back next year!

Hi, my name is Lauren and I'm.....

....a blog slacker!!! I apologize for my slackness, but since I've started a new job and I'm now taking two classes this semester, the blog has definitely been put on the back burner. I hope to have some new posts up soon, including our beach trip from July....yes, July I said. I know, I know and I will (hope to) do better :0)
