Going To The Beach!!! :D


The reason I have not posted in such a long time is we went to Myrtle Beach SC. It was so much fun! I could NOT go the beach without taking my camera and taking pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย So here are some pics from last week.


This was our condo. We stayed on the tenth level (there were 20 of them total).



This was our view.

I said there would be more baby pics, so here they are.

Matthew was trying to get him to smile.


Back to the beach. ๐Ÿ™‚

They had horseshoe crabs there that you could touch and pick up.

Also there were sharks that you could touch.


Just one of the many attractions there.ย Of course we had to go in. ๐Ÿ™‚




Helpful tips.

This is a cool shot that I got of anย eel. Look at that adorable little girl in the background.



There was a shark tunnel, it was awesome. They even included a moving walkway.


I snapped this as soonย as the lady in front of me pointed to a shark.

There was also a stingray touching area, which was cool. From left to right: Me, Micah, and Matthew. (Dad took the pic).


IMG_2337We HAD to take a picture of “Dory”.

That concludes our aquarium trip. If you ever go to SC I would suggest that you go to Ripley’s Aquarium.


The last day we were at the beach, me and dad got up early and went out to see the sunrise.


I think this one is cool because of the waves and the sunlight.



Then we had to stop because the sun was going behind the clouds. Thank you for reading this post. (I know it was long). I really enjoy doing these posts and I will continue to do so. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Beautiful pictures. I’ve got to figure out how to get a notice (if that’s possible) when you post so I don’t miss anything.

    Love you!

  2. Oh, and about the wave picture… Wellโ€ฆ The screen has to be a certain size for the pic to come up. I know that if i view my blog on a phone, small computer/laptop, or make the window smaller, it doesnโ€™t come up. I would try to make it fullscreen or โ€œstretch outโ€™ the window until it shows up. Yeah, it is super frustrating, but I canโ€™t fix it. Just try what I said and it should come up.

  3. I liked that verse you picked out. Would you mind posting it here so we won’t forget which one it was? ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I love all these comments. I agree on the sunrise pictures. We should use them to make cards or something. Maybe you can find a scripture verse to go with them and we can make cards with that pic to send to our Samaritan’s Ministry people?!?! What a blessing!
    Anyway– I love your pics and can tell you are enjoying the camera and experimenting with what works best. Keep up the great work, sweetie!

          1. Thanks ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ I am thrilled to have them as students! If Freddie needs any help with his piano, just let me know! I will be there for him. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope he does well and I am SO excited to give him his first book!

            Wow… I’m sorry. It’s like we are having our own little conversation right here on you’re blog ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I wonder how we went from talking about the beach to Freddie’s piano! ;p

  5. I will ๐Ÿ˜€ Sorry I couldn’t play today! The game lasted 18 innings. I might be able to play tomorrow or Tuesday! We can talk about it more then!

  6. Ahh! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ This is so many comments! You can totally delete this whole conversation if you want! (except for the part where you told how you took the Planet Jellies pics! That is super awesome!) This is the best post on your whole blog! Well… The Maddox update was awesome too. ๐Ÿ˜€ Please let me know when you add posts on your blog! I would love to see all of your totally great posts! Have a great day and keep up the GREAT work! Love you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Oh yeah… Sorry about calling your brother Jeff! I just thought that was what he wanted to be called! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can delete the comment if your brother doesn’t like it. I know my brother prefers to be called Daniel, so I just assumed I would call your brother Jeff!

  8. Was it on shade at Planet Jellies, or on the beach at sunrise? Both? Sorry! ๐Ÿ˜‰ So many questions! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I am just really interested! The pics are great and I want to know how you did it!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE them!

  9. Okay! That is cool! That is totally fine about your memory! ๐Ÿ˜‰ So the jelly fish was just normal?! It really looks like it’s ‘glowing in the dark’! I LOVE your flash! Mine is not very good :/ Mine would just make the glass all white ๐Ÿ™ Was your white balance on incandescent? The colors are so cool! They are such great pics! I love them! It is really hard for my camera to take pics in dark room through glass (like in that room at the zoo)!

  10. Also, can you tell me a little bit about the Planet Jellies pictures? The second picture is super cool because it looks like it is glowing blue! ๐Ÿ˜€ Did you use the flash in those pics? I don’t see any light on the glass! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    1. Ok, first, usually I just put it on setting P. (it is not M. but you can control some things, like white balance.) I have a Canon, I know you do not have one but you might have the same settings. The shutter speed was on auto so I not sure about that. Oh, I changed the aperture and exposure compensation. Sorry. ( You know I do not have good memory. :D) Second, I have a more expensive flash, so that might be the reason that you don’t see anything on the glass. How I made the jellyfish “glow” was I used flash and it was dark so that might have something to do with it and I edited the pic too (added more color). Sorry that this is so long. :/

  11. I need to tell you that the best pictures on your whole entire blog are the sunrise pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How did you get them? What was your shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, etc.?

  12. I know I was there when you did it, but when I tried to ‘add logo’ (I thought that is what we did on yours), it made the logo like the picture of Maddox.

  13. This is my reply to Matthew’s comments on my blog:
    Yes, the fishing is VERY fun! We only caught on fish this time though ๐Ÿ™
    Also, thanks for the kind comments on LEGO fun parts 1 and 2! Have a great day!

    Maddie, can you tell him? I don’t think that if I reply to him on my blog he will get it. THANKS! ๐Ÿ˜€
