Barlow Family Vacation

Vacations with my family always seem a little hard to come by... having 9 in one family with all age ranges under the sun, everyone owning a biz or in school, and running a church. This seems to limit our options a lot even just with a spare moment to get away!
Well back in the winter someone decided to bless our family with a week of their timeshare wherever we wanted to go! They all decided on Mrytle beach so this past week my family drove down here to Nashville to pick me up and we allll headed down 10 hours in the big BarlowMobile....an adventure in itself let me tell you! We spent the first two days with some friends down in Charleston actually unexpectadly! We just headed over for lunch and they invited our whole family to spend the night and tour Charleston with them! It was AMAZING! They own a home on a finger of the Atlantic and the view is just breathtaking! I could definitely live around there someday! And Charleston DON'T even get me started. Probably one of my favorite city's that I've ever been to! I felt like I had stepped into a southern version of Europe! AWEsome.
We then spent the next 5 days in Myrtle Beach at the time share and it was beautiful.... unfortunately it was pretty cold most of the week so we just chilled and sat in the hot tub... but that is my type of vacation anyways! :) The last day there we all rented beach bikes and road along the water for about an hour.... the fun sort of got dampened though when my phone fell out of my pocket along the beach and I couldn't find it ANYWHERE.... that being my business phone and all I was pretty worried! Thankfully my dad had the idea of calling it and someone had actually picked it up... rather than my fear of it being out in the ocean! THANK GOD! :)
We headed back to Nashville Friday night and got in early Saturday morning for a nice chill day of driving around some of my favorite places, Leipers Fork, Natchez Trace, and tons of other places! My family headed out Sunday afternoon after they got a chance to visit my church for the first time and hang out with some friends! ALL and all it was a beautiful, refreshing, HILARIOUS time!!! Hope you enjoy the slideshow! :)

HAHAHHA. LOVE THIS SONG.
SOOO MUCH.
Gosh, I miss all of you.
So glad I get to see 1/9th of your family in 12 days and then that 1/9th plus 7/9ths in 20 days, and then the remaining 1/9th (you) in three months.

Yup.

I can't believe we were both on a family vacation in South Carolina at the same time. So... on the phone... when you said "Myrtle Beach" and I said "Hilton Head"... neither of us realized that we were talking about the same state? Sounds about right!

P.S.: This slideshow is why I want to learn how to take good pictures before I have kids.
