Spontaneous day trips!

We love spontaneous day trips!! Sometimes the Daddy will wake up one morning and say "hey, let's jump in the car and drive to *insert cool place here*" and of course the girls are all up for it! So one morning the Daddy wanted to take the girls to Myrtle Beach! Well anything that has 'beach' in the name is perfect for us!! So we loaded up and off we went! 

The first stop was the Ripley's Aquarium. Such a neat place! Abby was a little apprehensive of the sharks and fish but once she realized they were in a 'cage' and couldn't get her, she was ok with it! 

Roaring like a shark :)
 The overhead tank
 Abby was just a bit afraid!
 This is their attempt at 'fish faces'
 I love Abby's look here...Like 'Seriously Dad'.

After the aquarium, we took a little time to walk around Barefoot Landing - an outdoor shopping area. It's located around a lake/retention pond kinda thing and has some interesting carp and fish in the waters that you can feed. 
 The fish are literally jumping on top of each other to get the food.
Of course what's a visit to Myrtle Beach without actually visiting the beach! This was Ada's first official time going...the last time she was there, she slept the whole time! Abby was a little apprehensive about the ocean, I don't know why, after seeing the fish and sharks at the aquarium that day she should have been overly excited to see where they live!
Ada was really into the water but Abby was content just sitting back in the sand.
Of course the Mommy wasn't going to come all the way to the beach and not have Abby at least touch the ocean!

 Abigail and Kinlee

Esme and Abby playing in the fountain at the pool!

Ada loves the pool!! Or is it that Ada loves the food at the pool :)
Goggle girl!

A few weeks ago the girls and I drove down to Florida and on the way we stopped to do a little shopping. When we walked into Old Navy, Abby saw their display and wanted her picture taken with it!

My little 'Apple-users'
 This is a favorite past time of the girls - pushing each other...though Abby does get the raw end of the deal cause by the time it's Ada's turn to push, she's usually over the whole game and ready to move on :)
 3 going on 16....I have a feeling we need to get a good phone plan! (yes, she was really talking to her grandma here!)

One of the wonderful things about summer...eating outside!! (and adorable Edward Jones hats!)
