Tell me Thursday: where are we?

Tell Me Thursday is hosted by , be sure to hop over and see other participant's posts!

Last week you got to see a very happy twelve year old get her first cell phone at her birthday party. This week, we're vacationing in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with the same family, my BFF and her kids, and her three neices ... and my two kids. yes, this week we are doing our own experiement of "Wendy and Kristi Plus 9".

She come down last Friday with her four and one neice. My two kids and I arrived Monday at lunch time. The other two neices arrived on Tuesday evening. We're coming home today, bringing two of the neices home with us to meet their grandpa. Poor Jackson, he's been surrounded by girls ALL WEEK! The ages from oldest to youngest is 15, 15, 13, 13, 12, 12, 10, 8, and 7. we wake up, get ready, eat, go to the beach, go to the pool, come in to eat. Go back out to the beach, then to the pool, and in for dinner. Jackson has one weird sunburn, that's for sure! The first day I sprayed some spray-sunscreen on his back, and his burn looks like a rash. His and Hannah's face crisped the first day but I went and got some zinc based sunscreen like the surfers use that can't be rubbed off easily and that's made a HUGE difference. No aloe for us this year, yay!

The second 15 year old just turned such yesterday. We went out for pizza (and got a few funny looks as the whole brood was walking to the back of the restaurant) for dinner. Kristi had T's phone in her pocketbook and surprised her after dinner with it. I have video. You're going to have to come back and see that one once we get home and I get it uploaded. Right now we're sitting at the table, and Kristi is calling out names and numbers helping Jackson enter contacts into my new cell phone (basic, pre paid, not a big deal, etc

We're going to be leaving in the next few hours. Pray for us! It's a 4-5 hour drive with minimal stops, but it's raining right now.
