Beachin' in the New Year!

After a crazy two weeks of Christmas vacation, we were very fortunate enough to escape to Myrtle Beach with 4/6 of our Carolina Family to celebrate New Year's.
Day 1 was awesome weather and, though overcast, it hit mid-60's so the kids were so excited to enjoy the beach.

A little Duck, Duck, Goose with "camp counselors," Loryn and Jon. :-)

The scariest, yet also funniest game ever- Lightning Reaction.

Getting shocked for fun? Sure! But only if you are the slowest...

The kids were all so great and played so well together MOST of the time. (I mean, they are real, normal kids after all.)

New Year's Eve craziness...G-rated.

"Kids, if you sit and take picture you can open your Secret Santa gifts..."

A little "Happy Birthday, Jesus" on New Year's, too...

Watching the "9pm ball" drop...

An adult pic! Nice to have a 10 year old in attendance...

The next day, we drove to the Boardwalk and played arcade games and ate funnel cake and ice cream for lunch.

And then crab legs for dinner. 2016 was already the best year ever at this point!

It was a wonderful way to ring in the New Year, and we were so thankful for the getaway. While 2015 was much better than 2014, we are still so excited about all the hope and promise that 2016 should offer us.
