Myrtle Beach weekend

The third and final item on our agenda for the long weekend was to attend Lucy's friend Grace's 5th birthday party. So we headed south down to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina to stay at the Dunes resort.

The resort has two large indoor waterparks. Below you can see Andrew and Henry enjoying the lazy river (just before some kid vomited nearby and the pools were evacuated!)

The kids enjoyed a magic show, face painting and of course the water slides. On Grace's birthday we celebrated with a hello kitty theme, enjoying pizza and cake. For dinner we went out to Friendly's (where ice cream makes the meal) and very much enjoyed our sundaes. The kids were exhausted after a full day of water fun, sugar and friendship.

The next day the dads and kids hit the water parks again before we headed off to the shopping outlets. We ate lunch at Red Lobster (another first experience for us Aussies) which turned out to have incredibly poor service before we headed home to NC.

Thanks to Greg & Stacie for a great weekend!
