Another vacation with the grands in history. We reserved a 3 room suite and took DD#2, SonIL (not her husband, DD#1 had to work), and the 2 grands to the beach for 6 days. Monday was spent driving, checking in, and getting settled.
Tuesday the fun began. There were 6 pools, 2 were indoor and included a lazy river.
Then there is the beach,
and building sand castles.
The world's biggest beach chair.
Back to the room for lunch.
Then while the little kids "rested" the big kids put puzzles together.
After a nice rest, we met the other grand parent's at Capt. Anderson's for dinner. After a LONG wait for a table, we finally got seated.
First time eating calamari.
Since it is a vacation and we don't need to get in bed early, we took a trip to Funland after dinner. Driving cars, skee ball, and Guitar Hero are loads of fun.
It was a long day, and we all slept well. More fun in store for tomorrow.
Life is good.

Well, June is almost over and I have failed to meet my goals for the month. I had hoped to ride 575 miles and only got 243.8. Between no scheduled bike rides, rain, storms, and clean up we just couldn't get a lot of miles in. But that is ok, we need the rain very badly, but could do without the storms.
My training for the 5K has been put on hold for now, for reasons that won't be discussed here. But hopefully I can start back in a month or two.
We will be taking the grands camping next week. Just going to a spot on the lake about 20 miles from home, but they don't care. Next week will be spent swimming, fishing, hiking, and trying to stay cool. Our oldest DGS will be spending the afternoon and night with us today and I'm putting him to work helping get the camper set up, packed, and ready to go. He doesn't know that yet, but he is usually good about helping if he can get something out of it. Last night our youngest DGS spent the night and we baked goodies to take. DH is working and missing all the fun, poor him.
Well, off to play Mario Cart with DGS. Wish I were better, it is a shame when a 4 year old beats you.
Life is good, even when you miss your goals.
