End of Summer Get Away

Since we homeschool, we have the ability to schedule our vacations (such as they are) for non-prime times.  This helps us to save money by going during the “off season”.  It also helps us to avoid ridiculously crowded activities that nobody gets to enjoy.

We just returned from a 3 day get away to the beach.  The first day was rainy so we took advantage of the aquarium.  I posted lots of photos of the aquarium on Learning Curve, and you can find that post by clicking here.

Mamaw traveled with us and the girls had a wonderful time playing in the sand with her.  Originally, they were constructing a sandcastle…which somehow turned into digging a really BIG hole.   We also spotted a school of dolphins swimming right off the pier, but I didn’t get any photos.

Our hotel had an indoor pool, so later in the evenings Thomas attempted to teach Olivia to swim.   Needs work….

Even Lindsey looks a bit concerned by the progress, or lack thereof.

Followed by a trip to the mall to ride the two story carousel, and then on to Chuckee Cheese before starting for home.

Even though I’m never in any of the photos (because really, who would take photos?)…I really DO go on these trips too!
