Beach Trip #2

My mom, dad, sister, and two of my nephews came out during the week of the 4th of July to spend some time at the beach. We went to Surfside, SC which I have to say was wonderful. Jacob LOVED spending time with his Nana, Grandpa, Aunt DeAnne, and cousins Matthew and Daniel. On the 4th we went to the beach and enjoyed a nice firework show on the water. There were so many people setting off their own fireworks plus the city of Surfside that we ended up with a really great show. It was really a nice experience to sit and feel the ocean breeze, hear the waves and see the fireworks. What a way to celebrate our freedom and our country's birthday.
We also wen on a helicopter ride. It was both mine and Jacob's first time riding in a helicopter. We both loved it. We also attempted to take Jacob to his first movie by taking him to see Toy Story 3 at the Imax. He lasted about half way through the movie and when the popcorn ran out he was ready to leave. So mommy and Jacob left the movie so daddy, Grandpa, and Daniel could enjoy the rest.
