Family Pictures On The Beach & The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk

Family Pictures on the Beach and The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk

Our 6th day at Myrtle Beach was busy and fun! I take our family pictures every year on the beach, and it has become our tradition. We usually wait until the last day for our mini photo session, and end up scrambling to get them done, so we decided to move it up a day this year. It was a great decision! The session was still rushed as the light was fading, because I didn't realize how far of a walk down the boardwalk it was to our chosen spot, but I love how they turned out!


It was so hard to narrow down the 500+ pictures I took on day six, but I managed (somewhat). Now I know which pictures I want to print out for the Family Beach Pictures Gallery Wall that I have planned. (Yet another project to add to my mile-long to do list!)

Although most of the pictures are from our family photoshoot, I also wanted to share a few fun moments from our day at the pool and on the boardwalk!


Myrtle Beach Family Vacation Day Six


Day 6 of vacation started just like any other. We had breakfast together in the dining room, then enjoyed some down time in our suite. For the first time ever, we decided to skip going down to the beach for the day. Instead, we opted to spend the afternoon at the pool!

After a few hours of enjoying the pool, lazy river, hot tubs, and water slides at our hotel, we headed back up to our suite for showers and dinner. The kids got dressed for our photo shoot, and we headed out onto the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk.

It was a busy night on the boardwalk, and the kids had lots of fun along the way! That just might be why we were so late getting to our photoshoot. We couldn't help but stop to visit with a stormtrooper and a pair of well-trained macaws!

 We finally arrived at the beautiful spot we discovered at the very end of the boardwalk! It was perfection!

 I usually just take pictures of our kids, but this year, Lexie snapped a few of me and Grant, and each of us took a picture with our kids. I'm so glad we did. By that point on our trip, Dylan and Lexie knew about the baby, and it was our little secret! Next year, when we have more time (and another child), we want to take a family picture, too!


As usual, some of our kids were more cooperative than others (I'll let you decide which ones), but I managed to capture a few good pictures of each of them!

By the time we were finished, it was dusk. With our photoshoot done earlier on our trip, we were able to breathe a sigh of relief, and look forward to one last awesome day of vacation that was commitment-free! We were all happy and relaxed on our walk back to the hotel on the boardwalk!

As I look at these pictures, and see all the happy faces, I can't help but get excited about our next family vacation! We LOVED our trip to Myrtle Beach, and I have a feeling we will be going back next Summer. And next year, our family will be bigger! We can't wait to introduce our baby boy to all of our family vacation traditions!
