The other day we went to Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach, so my son could go to Ridemakerz. If you don't know, it's a store where you can build your own ride. They have many models to choose from. The basic models are really affordable. The price goes up according to the model. You get to pick things like your rims, wheels, sounds, spoilers, decals, and motors. Then after you have everything, you put it together right in the store.
Mitchell had been saving up his money for the beach and he spent quite a bit of it at Ridemakerz. He was very happy with the ride he made. He treats it like it's family, lol!
Since he got a car, we knew his little brother would want one too, so we picked a basic model for him. They were both really happy with their cars.
We have been eating breakfast every morning at Ocean Isle Inn's complimentary breakfast. My son has really been enjoying his waffles with syrup. In addition to waffles, they have oatmeal, yogurt, fruit cups, cereal, biscuits, bagels, coffee, juices, and milk. It's great to have so many choices, especially since my youngest can be a very picky eater.
There is a pier within within walking distance of the hotel. We went there yesterday and walked down it. See, the teddy bear backpack on Hunter. It's also a leash. I got the idea from Donna at The WV Homemaker. He loves holding the teddy bear and likes the freedom to walk without having to hold our hands.
If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you may already have heard that there were 2 ladies killed yesterday in a parasailing accident at the pier. Me and Mitchell had saw them in the air maybe 5 minutes or so before it happened. There was a storm coming up and the wind was blowing and I said they shouldn't be out there in that. I couldn't believe it when I saw all the ambulances and police out there. I wasn't sure what happened until we walked down the beach and saw the parasailing boat. Mitchell was really upset for a while, but we've talked for awhile about life and death, and now he's feeling better.
Yesterday was a bad day for waves and it rained yesterday afternoon, so we didn't play in the ocean much. We went in the pools. There are 2 pools at the hotel, one outside, and a heated one inside with a jacuzzi.
The outside pool starts at 2 feet deep, so Hunter could stand up and play. He had a great time in the pool and even tried to swim a little.
