In my mind, Christmas 2010 will be remembered as the longest day(s) in history. I felt like we lived through a tornado - and came through the experience battered but still in one piece. We've done a lot of relaxing so far - and looking forward to later in the week when the forecast is for 70 degrees. We've taken family walks, checked out the beach, shopped in little beach towns, and thoroughly enjoyed a burger joint [where we signed the walls and threw peanut shells on the ground].
Pawleys Island is approximately one hour south of Myrtle Beach, SC. We're hoping to visit Charleston, find some fun in Myrtle Beach, and to perfect the art of relaxing together as a family. We were joined this morning by Rob's parents and his youngest sister, her husband and their precious little guy, Jacob. We've never visited this part of the country before and we are excited to take in some history, enjoy some warmer temperatures, and of course, eat lots of good food! Stay tuned.....
Here's hoping your "after Christmas" involves a little rest, too!
Here are some sights from our first two days -

If anyone is familiar with the Charleston/Myrtle Beach area - do you have any suggestions for fun family activities?
