Birthday in Myrtle Beach

We picked Claire up from school on Friday afternoon and headed to Myrtle Beach to catch up with Dale, Deb, and Travis. We enjoyed dinner on Friday night followed by homemade strawberry cupcakes and Blue Bell vanilla ice cream in the hotel suite. Everyone had brought great gifts for me, and we had fun catching up.

Saturday morning we swam in the heated pools at the hotel. Hamilton had never been swimming before, and he loved it.
Later that afternoon we walked on the beach after we were appropriately bundled for the whipping winds and cold air. Claire had been itching all weekend to look through all the shells littering the beach. She found some treasures in just a few minutes of walking, and she was satisfied--the rest of us were nearly frozen.
