Our "beach" vacation, minus the sun and surf!

Over Valentine's Day weekend, we went to Myrtle Beach with a group of friends to have a fun time and run in a 5K. I knew it wouldn't be very warm, but we sure didn't expect this....SNOW! It snowed about 4 inches, which isn't a huge deal to us here but it hasn't snowed there in 10 years! It was pretty crazy. Despite the snow, it was one of the funnest trips we have ever had! We laughed and talked and had great meals and silly moments. It was a trip that was much needed for me, without the kids! I needed a break and it was just perfect!

3 Rings of Fun...

A couple of weeks ago, we went to the circus at the fairgrounds. We had so much fun last year that I couldn't wait to take our girls again. While it is no "Greatest Show on Earth", it still is pretty fun. Here are a few pics of the action!

The girls wanted to ride the ponies so Gpa Hess and I put them on. Skylar wouldn't let go of him and yelled "I want to get off! I want to get off!" Sailyr loved it though!

Sailyr cried and cried because she wanted to ride on the elephant! I wouldn't let her get on. I know she wouldn't have been able to stay on that long because they walked sooo slow. She can't hold still for longer than about 5 seconds at a time!

P.S. Check out the sweet fake ponytail that blond lady has on! Classy:)
