A Week at the Beach

We had a fun week at the beach with AJ and KJ. We all look forward to our annual family week at Mariott's Grande Ocean Resort in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Our daily routine is to go out on the beach early, come in for a light lunch, enjoy an afternoon of games, reading and relaxation, let the children pick a restaurant for an early evening meal, G-pa takes the kids back out on the beach or to the pool and the family watches a movie (DVD) together. Several years ago, 7 year old KJ announced our "family beach tradition" is to watch Pirates of the Caribbean in the evening. This time we started with DVD #1 and watched Captain Jack and his pirate adventures 3 nights in a row (all 3 movies). In addition to all our beach gear, the kids had packed a stack of DVDs along with their electronic games, some toys and a few books required by this G-ma. We certainly had no shortage of entertainment!
