Myrtle Beach, September 8, 2013

Saturday morning we returned to the pool area with Parker and Gabi.  We made some progress getting the kids into the big pool with us holding them.  Gabi was jumping into my hands from the steps into the pool but Parker was more hesitant. After returning from the pool we dressed and went out to a local Mexican restaurant for lunch.  Gabi fell asleep for a short nap before getting to the restaurant but that didn't interfer with her afternoon nap after returning to the motorhome.  Morning swimming wears out the kids and old folks alike causing everyone to snooze in the afternoon.  An attempt was made at kite flying in the evening but was not too successful.

Today, Sunday, another morning at the pool.  We played for a spell in the big pool and then with much coaxing finally got the kids on an inner tube in the "lazy river".  Tom had both kids on a double inner tube.  Gabi was the first one to get on and then Parker finally decided to give it a try.  Needless to say, after several circuits on the "river" and feeling it was time to leave they were hooked and didn't want to get back on land.  But lunchtime was calling so we had to leave.  A barbeque trailer in the campground was the answer to lunch.  We picked up lunch from the trailer and took it to the motorhome to eat.  Tom and I had pulled pork with slaw, baked beans and a dirty rice dish, the kids had barbeque chicken with fries and slaw.  This evening Tom successfully tried getting the kite up in the air out on the beach while the kids played in the surf.
