Happy 4th/Vacation

I hope everyone has a great 4th. We went to the fireworks presentation here in our town last night. They had music, food, fireworks and tons of people. We, however, waited til dark and drove over and found a great parking space, watched the fireworks, and probably made it home before most people made it to their cars. The kids loved it and minus the mosquitos flying into my van, so did I.
My digital camera is broken so I used a store bought one for our vacation and finally got the pictures back last night. I thought I'd post about that even though we have been home well over a week. We went to Hilton Head, Sc. My sister in law and brother in law have a condo there and let us use it. On our way down we stopped at my sister, Sandy's house and picked up my nephew Austin. He really gave my oldest some much needed company as my two younger ones are 9 and 10 years younger than him. The condo was a great with plenty of space and had everything we needed. It was located right on a golf course. The resort had a service where you called the dunebuggy office and told them you needed a ride to the beach and within 5 minutes a van arrived with a driver that helped you load your stuff in and drove you to the beach. The same on the way back. I can't believe we went to the beach and left with absolutely NO SAND in my van!!! We had to cut our stay a little short because of the soccer Regionals so we really soaked in the beach everyday that we were there. My dh took the kids to play minature golf one day. The last night we were there we took a trolley down to Sea Pines and walked up a light house. This area had plenty of little shops, music, and a huge playground for the kids. It was very family friendly. We loved it and hope to go back soon. Thanks Diane and Jimmy for letting us enjoy your condo:)
I pray you all have a blessed day and remember all the blessings the Lord has given us on this very special day in our country.

Great pictures! I'm so glad you had a wonderful vacation. I know the cousins had a great time and your family brought back one of my favorite things...lots and lots of memories! Take care and give Sandy a hug when she comes back by. She was so sweet to come by our craft show, but she she could have gone all day without posting the pictures she took of me! ;o) Hugs ~ Kim
