South Carolina Beach Trip

Matt's dad was in an art show this past weekend at Huntington Beach State Park in South Carolina. We had the opportunity to take a weekend trip there and stay with Grandma and Grandpa Jennings in their beach rental. It was a bit of a whirlwind--a 5.5 hour drive for a short weekend trip--but we had a great time!

While we waited for the art show to begin, we walked on the beach at the state park. It was beautiful.

Grandpa's Tent

There happened to be a free sidewalk chalk contest going on outside of the art show. The boys and I decided to decorate a square. Henry designed the mountain picture and Oliver came up with the idea of adding dinosaurs. Matt and Joyce and I helped fill in some of the colors.

Here is one of Ollie's dinos.

In the afternoon, we left Grandpa at the show and went to the beach. The water was cold, but the boys went in anyway. 

Back at the show, we picked Grandpa up to go to dinner.

And on our way out we discovered that the Dino Land picture won third place! How exciting! (And the next morning I got a call that Henry and Oliver's $25 prize check is in the mail!)

Sunday morning we had breakfast with Grandma and Grandpa, took a few pictures, and then got back on the road to go home.

 It was a nice little break from the routine!
