Vacation- Part One- “GO”cation time!

Mr.vB and I always visit with his Mom and step-dad around the 4th of July and this year was no different. So after dropping the dogs off at the kennel (as noted in the prior post) Mr. vB and I got on the road for our 6 hour trek down to Myrtle Beach.  It was Mr. vB’s step father’s 65th bday and the whole family was planning on parting the weekend away.  We did a pretty darn good job I must say!

First we did a little decorating,

Happy Birthday Hootie!! We LOVE You!

We ended up having an indoor picnic because it was WAY too hot and humid to have it outdoors.  Just envision 9 adults and 3 kids all spread out on beach towels in the living room.  It was great!!

Then the next day we got busy decorating for a surprise baby shower for Mr. vB’s brother and his wife.  They are having baby #2, so we thought we would help them out with some blue goodies.  (They were down at the beach while we quickly decorated)

I worked on laying out all the food and stringing the onesies from various things.

Aunt Ashley also made some awesome sugar cookies that we painted to resemble soccer balls.  Miss M was a big fan.

I think her parents were quite surprised and excited too by the event!

In between all the partying we also fit in plenty of beach time.

And then sadly it was time to leave the ocean behind and head back to Richmond.
