Our weekend started off to a rough start. We wanted to get to the beach early to try to avoid the intense mid-day heat. So by 8:30 the kids were in their car seats and I locked the door to the house, only to find that neither of us had house keys, wallets, Dustin didn't have his phone with the number of the people who own our house, and we had very little gas in our car. So we stopped at the beach while we made a few calls but quickly had to leave and head 45 min. to meet the people with a spare key before they left for the day. Thankfully we made it there with the little gas we had, but had to suck up our pride and ask them to also give us a $10 to make it home! We were very humbled! Once we got home, ate, napped, and played a little we went back to the beach and had the best time we have had since the heat has hit. We went later and it was only 88 degrees so it was manageable and our kids played and swam for a long time!!!
After church on Sunday we headed to Myrtle Beach for some mini golf. Soren wanted to go the the Helicopter one again. It was HOT. The kids were dripping sweet by the time we left! The rest of the day was just relaxing at home and in the pool!!!
Here are the kids excited to be riding in Dustin's new truck. Maeta kept saying, "This is fun!"

Today we went to Southport for the morning. It was a nice morning to walk around looking at shops, eat ice cream, swing, walk the pier and look at old houses.
When we came home Maeta napped and my mom took Soren on a date to the beach. He wanted to be a pirate while he was there but didn't end up wearing the eye patch because he didn't want to scare any of the kids at the beach! So the two of them enjoyed time together while I got a quiet house!
After they got home we went swimming and then made dinner before I brought my mom to the airport.
We are sooooo sad her visit is over but had such a great time with her. Thank you mom for coming and playing with us for 5 days. We had so much fun showing you our lives down here! We LOVED having you here.
