This past weekend we headed to the beach with Kent's grandparents (the kids' great grandparents). We decided to check out a beach that is semi close to us (semi being 3 hours away instead of 5 hours). We went to Hilton Head Island. It would be the first time the kids have actually been in a "real" ocean versus the Gulf of Mexico. We all had a good time. Spent a full day at the beach and then went out to eat a one of the local seafood places. After supper we went out for some putt-putt golf. It was Nathan's first time. All in all it was a good weekend. The kids had fun and we all came home with some new memories. However, HHI is nothing like Panama City Beach. Nothing could compare to those white sandy beaches.. well maybe Hawaii.. or the Bahamas..
