A vacation to ALWAYS remember

We are back from the beach and had a WONDERFUL time!! I never thought that I would have an opportunity to take my child to the beach because quite frankly, I never thought I would be a Mom. After years of struggling with infertility and over coming it, we finally conceived Cameron through IVF. Well, my dream FINALLY came true this past weekend. We took Cameron to Myrtle Beach for a weeks vacation and had a blast! He loved the ocean although he scrapped up his knee the first night. I think that if he wouldn't have scrapped it up the first night then he would have enjoyed the ocean a bit more, but that kinda kept him out of the ocean for a couple days. After Dr. Mommy took care of his knee and doctored it up, he returned to the water full speed ahead. He had so much fun!! He wasn't afraid of running into the ocean at all, but he wasn't real fond of the water heading back out and then the sand covering his feet. I just don't think he liked the feel of it, but he eventually got use to it. Here he is experiencing the ocean water coming over his feet for the very 1st time. As you can see with that smile....... he LOVED it!
He was so anxious to hit the beach every morning and so were we. We just had so much fun!
TADA - We are FINALLY here!!
Resting on a rock outside of Cagney's. A restaurant that we had dinner at one night.
The prime rib was DELICIOUS!!
A picture taken at Cagney's. Gotta love Cameron's smile!!
One of the many pictures that were taken.

Nothing better then a bond between a son and his Mommy!

He ran constantly. He never would give up!!
He didn't want to miss a single thing
He wanted to feed the ducks and especially loved the white duck.
We had so much fun. Definitely a GREAT memory!
My 2 favorite boys!
Dancing as the sun set for the evening!
Looking for the perfect seashell and LOOK - we found one!
A great family picture taken by a passerby
Gotta love Cameron's eyes!!
Playing with some twigs on the beach
Gotta love seeing the sand rolling down his arms
He loved squeezing the wet sand and indeed was a mess afterwards!
An evening wagon ride on the beach
Cameron was washing off his hands here after playing in the sand and WHOOSH, a wave came and bumped him on the rear and he fell down. I was lucky to have been there to get his expression after falling for the first time!
This was a LARGE sandcastle built by someone else and as the high tide was coming up, Cameron decided he wanted to play in the deep hole. It was pretty neat and he really enjoyed it!
Hope you all enjoyed some of the many pictures I took. It was hard trying to decide what pictures to post out of the 703 pictures that I took. Yep, I guess you could say that I was a little camera happy or maybe it was CAMERON happy!!

There is nothing like sharing a vacation with a child. It the only way to enjoy and appreciate those things we tend to miss.

Well I wouldn't say you were camera happy, I'd say you were saving memories that flee to quickly. Love the look on his face as he plays in the water, such a happy time for all.
