State Nickname: The Palmetto State
Year of Family Trip: 2003
Cities Visited: Columbia, Myrtle Beach
Can't Miss Tourist Attraction: Myrtle Beach
Our family joined up with the Burns family again for a Myrtle Beach adventure in South Carolina. We enjoyed the camaraderie in Gulf Shores a few years earlier and things didn't change much for the Myrtle Beach trip. Although, we did include Jennifer (Jordan's wife-to-be eventually) and our Aunt Mary Ruth (my mom's sister). We had a great trip including a massive manta ray spotting, a dolphin watch boat ride, and some tasty food at Bubba's. Also, lots of card playing using M&M's as betting pieces and an accidental slip-n-slide made out of pickle juice! Great memories all around!
State Nickname: The Tar Heel State
Year of Family Trip: 1993
City Visited: One in the Smoky Mountains
Can't Miss Tourist Attraction: Smoky Mountains
North Carolina, as you can see, got marked off our list of states early in the process. McKinley was around three years old. It's a wonder Jordan and I didn't coax him into blazing a new trail at some point. We were pretty skilled at convincing him to do things that may (or may not) have been the best idea in the world. Honestly though, I don't remember too much about the Smoky Mountain adventure, but the views appear to be stunning. However, I do remember those bold and bright rainbow striped shorts...LOVED those back in the day!
Have you ever visited the beautiful Carolinas?
