Earlier this year, we started making plans for the eclipse. We knew we wanted to be close to totality and started out planning a camping trip in the mountains. Then Tobin came along and we realized, camping in August at eight months pregnant would not be fun. For any of us. So, we went with plan B. A weekend beach trip and a drive down to totality.
We went to Myrtle Beach. It’s close and slightly more affordable since all we ever do is the beach and pool.
We ate out the first night at River City Cafe (it was directly in front of where we stayed). Ya’ll it was really, really good. One of the best burgers I’ve ever had.
Ace got this huge Pizza Burger.
And put the whole thing in his mouth!
Tried to stay with low carbs but the onion rings were calling. So, I compromised and ditched the bun on my chili cheeseburger. It was still very good.
The next two days were full of sand, sun, and pool time. I’m not kidding.
As soon as the kids woke up, swimsuits went on and didn’t come off until we were back in for supper.
Sand castles were built. Races to the ocean were had.
We ventured out one evening and got some family pictures. Since it was August, it was still very crowded and so we got some other friends in our pictures…oh well. Beautiful sky! Quick maternity pictures which I’ll do on another blog post. And Mark and I managed to get pictures with each of the kids. I love each of their silly personalities shining through.
We left out early morning to try and find a spot for the eclipse.
