4Th of July

I know I am a little late blogging about the 4th. We decided to go down to Myrtle Beach for the weekend. Our friend got us a great deal on 2 nights for $100.00. You can't beat that for a holiday weekend. Or any weekend actually. So we got there and they told me there was still due $130.00. The hundred was pre paid at the time of booking. I was not Happy about this. So I called our friend and he said he would contact the lady he knew there and get it taken care of . Unfortunately she is avoiding his calls. Still you really an not complain for $230. when it should have been almost $400.

So we got there on Friday afternoon. We were very pleased with our room. A queen bed( oh what heavenly rest, our bed at home is a double) and a double bed( girls shared) also a full size kitchen. It was not Ocean Front but Ocean View.

On Friday nite we went to BareFoot Landing. They were having Fireworks there that night. We ate at this awesome wing place called Wild Wing Cafe. I never had such great wings. They were the best. So now we have a favorite place to eat when we go there. The Fireworks were great and the girls really enjoyed them. We really were hoping to watch them from on the beach but we would not have been able to see them from there. Here is a picture of the girls in their 4th of July outfits. Teagen had a pair of 4th of July flip flops but she did not like how they felt so she would not wear them.

Sat night we decided to go and walk down to the strip were a lot of the shops were. It was very busy but fun to see all the people and different vehicles driving by. We went into a few shops and then headed back to the hotel for bed.

We had a great and relaxing vacation. It was just what we all needed. What did you do for the 4th weekend?
