At the end of June, Mike and I went to Myrtle Beach for a week. Raven didn’t want to go (she said her vacation was having the house to herself for the week) so she stayed home and took care of the cats. To say I was nervous about being away from her and the cats for a week is a bit of an understatement. I called her daily and texted her several times throughout the day for the entire week. I think she got a little perturbed about how many times I was bothering her. If that is how I act when I’m away from her for a mere 7 days, how am I going to handle it when she goes off to college in about a month?
Anywho, despite the worrying about Raven and the cats, I had a great time. Spent the week swimming in the pool, playing in the ocean, walking along the beach, shopping and eating way to much!
We, well mostly I, have already decided that if we take a vacation to the beach again next year, Raven and the cats are coming with us.
So, on to the pictures. Click on the thumbnail to view larger size.
And finally, two videos of sharks at Ripley’s Aquarium.

It looks like you guys had a ton of fun! I’ve never been on a beach vacation, but it definitely looks nice. I remember when I was a teen, I loved any time I had the house to myself, so I’m sure Raven had an absolutely amazing time just vegging out and playing with the cats. Also, look at it this way, you didn’t have to worry about hiring someone strange to watch over the cats while you were away, so at least your mind was at ease with that!

It looks as though you guys had a lot of fun! I have yet to be/go on vacation yet with Tristan, but it doesn’t mean it won’t happen. We’re in our “in between” stages in life. Even though I haven’t been on vacation with him just yet, I have been on vacation with my dad and his girlfriend out camping. In fact, we did NOT know where to put our food and a bear got all of our food. I hope that bear’s happy. Lol. It was funny and I did take pictures, but I don’t know where they went. 🙁 . That bear really tore up our cooler. I’m sure Raven had fun having the house to her self.

Ahh, those sharks are seriously bad ass! Love the pictures and those two videos.. I think that’s about as close to a shark I would ever get, too 😛 I miss Myrtle Beach, haven’t gone since I was in high school and it was a lot of fun, went with the family 🙂 It sounds like you guys had a blast, though!!
