We went to the beach for my brother's birthday.  He turned 12.  TWELVE, PEOPLE!  My baby brother!  I cannot believe 12 years has gone by...

We went to the Aquarium (I was going to show pictures but then this post would have had over 30 and that is just way to many, y'all...) which we always do when we go to the beach; and then the next day we went to Medieval Times! It is kinda like Dixie's Stampede, if you know what that is.  Basically you go and eat dinner and there is a show going on.  For Medieval Times it was, of course, medieval themed so there were knights and ladies and horses and jousts and all that good stuff.  It was really cool; we got to go on a special school day so it was our family and 2 middle schools.  But it was a lot cheaper; and there were way less people.  Win-win.

Our knight was the Red Knight and when he won at one of the events he got a handful of roses from the princess and then he rode his horse over and tossed them to the crowd.  So I got a rose.  He kissed them before he passed them out too.  So, yah.  ;)

And then we finally went to the actual beach.  It was beautiful...

 I'm always in awe when I go to the beach...
The beauty...
 The way the colors of the sky and the colors of the water merge somewhere on the horizon...
 The way it always goes in, and out...
 No matter what is happening on land...
 the ocean always there...
 Always flowing...
 Always lapping at the sand...
 It makes me remember how in control our God is...
 He never forgets to make the tide rise and fall...
 And He'll never forget us...

  1. OH. MY. WORD. I loooove the beach!!!! Is that Daytona beach?! It looks just like it! My family went to Daytona Beach, it is the only time I've ever gone ;( I want to go again so bad!!! Thank you for such lovely pics!

    1. Awwh, I know!! Nope, it's Myrtle Beach. In SC, when someone says "the beach" they mean Myrtle, even though the whole side of SC is beach really...haha I think I've been to Daytona Beach, but I'm not sure. =/ Awwh, I hope you get to go soon! How far do you live from it? You're welcome, thank you!! <3

    2. Wow, my family used to live one state over, in NC! My older brother and I were actually born there :) We used to live in Fl, about 2 or 3 hours away from Daytona beach, but we live in WV now.

    3. Cool! I was born in Michigan! The two of us have been all over! haha =)

  2. Your pictures are sooooo beautiful! I just saw the ocean last year and it was simply breathtaking. Wish your brother happy late birthday for me. I know you feel, Jess. My little brother is turning twelve this year too and... it's just crazy! Thank you for sharing. Love you!
    In Christ,

    1. Awwh, thank you Sarah!~ I know, it always blows me away! <3 Thank you! I did. He smiled. =) Ah, little brothers. They grow up too fast!! Are you the oldest?

      Love you too!!!!!

  3. Simply beautiful pictures :)

  4. Ohh, pretty pictures!! =D Myrtle beach looks pretty! =D Most of the beaches in Texas are a little more secluded. =) Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you!! It is beautiful. Haha, Myrtle Beach is a town built entirely around the ocean; we had to drive miles along the coast just to find a public parking lot between all the hotels and restaurants. ;D It's nice though because it makes you feel like a tourist every time you visit; which is a good thing every once in a while; to feel like everything is just waiting to be explored...

    2. Sounds fun! =D In most places in Texas you'd have to drive for miles along the beach to find a place with buildings. ;D

  5. Oh, gosh, that medieval thing you attended sounds so fun! :) Thanks for sharing, Jessica!

    1. I know! It was a lot of fun! Awh, you are very welcome! =) <3

  6. The picture where you have just the ocean waves captured definitely has to be my favorite!! I love it!!!
