Day three, Monday, started out cloudy and overcast. We hung at the house while we waited for the storm to pass over but by 10AM we were ready to get out of the house so we hit up the pool. The pool in Rosemary was a HUGE hit and we all loved it. It had three big steps that went across the pool. It was perfect for the littles to play. Colton is timid about the water so he hung out there most of the time unless he was with one of the adults.
Ryan and Lillian Grace. These two first vacationed five years ago in Myrtle Beach when they were little bitty barely one year olds. My how they have changed and grown in to two sweet and adorable almost six year olds.
This sweet nugget slept in my arms a lot on this trip. I didn't mind one bit!

The boys went and got doughnuts one morning. The kids swarmed the boxes of sugary goodness.
Tuesday it was still overcast but we decided to hit the beach anyway. At least it wasn't scorching hot with the blazing sun. Katie holding Mary Emily, Rooks in the blue hat, Colton on the right and I'm in the blue tent holding Sydney.
This boy LOVED the ocean. I'm convinced five is the best age ever to go to the beach. Ryan had the best time from playing in the same and making tunnels and channels to splashing in the waves to looking for seashells. He had a blast.

Colton enjoyed playing in the sand most of the time.
Love this sweet boy.
Colton had moments where he wasn't crazy about the beach and the sand. He never really warmed up to getting in the ocean. He spent most of the time in the sand. He didn't like the sand on his hands and feet so he would get Ryan to get him a bucket a water and he would take each foot and wash them off then rinse each hand. He's so funny!
We hit of the pool in the afternoon after naps. We all had a wonderful time at the pool. Everyone was in a good mood and we all laughed and played.
The boys trying to be just like daddy.
This boy definitely picks the pool over the beach.
And after a full day of the beach and the pool and lots of fun this was how we ended the day! So sweet seeing all these kiddos lined up. From left to right - Ryan, Colton, Rooks, Joseph and Lillian Grace. Missing was Mary Emily and Sydney. It was a full, noisy house that's for sure but one with lots of fun.
