Myrtle Beach Tip

We have just returned from a week at the beach with Nick's family.  It was fun to spent time with family and play with the kids in the pool and the ocean.  We didn't get to do a whole lot because we had to try and keep the the kids schedules.  For the most part we got everyone their naps but you could tell when we got off :)

One big success is that all 5 of us Jordan's slept in one room!  The twins each had a pack-n-play and Cali had a blow up toddler bed.  Amazingly everyone slept well for naps and at night with all of us together!

If Henry was awake he was trying to get someone to walk him around.  He must have walked 2 miles holding everyone's hands.  He will be walking as soon as he gets some confidence.

The kids enjoyed the pool.  This was the twins first time at a pool and they seems to have fun.  Once they got used to it they were splashing and touching the water trying to figure it out.  So cute!

We only got to spend about 1.5 hours at the beach due to nap time and me locking the keys in the van!  But the kids still got sand between their toes, ate some sand and splashed around.  

 Henry even wanted to walk in the sand!

Another first was putting the twins in high chairs at restaurants.  In the past we have kept them in the stroller and just feed them in their seats.  They liked the chairs and ate pretty well.  


We are blessed to be able to go on vacation with family and it is nice to have extra hands around to help!  I'm pretty pumped that we survived with all 3 kids.  It will only get better as everyone gets older :)


  1. Awww, this makes me so excited for our own MB trip in a few weeks. We always go for Labor Day and my birthday. I can't wait to take Brody this year since he'll be able to walk around on his own and hopefully do a lot more playing in the water and sand. Glad you all survived and had a great time! We'll all be sleeping in one room too so hope we can do as well as you all! :-)

    1. Have a great time! Looking forward to next year when the twins are bigger so we can do more.
