A few locals got together at Abuelo's to share another fun evening of good food and fellowship, and to welcome Kirk and Jan from Annapolis, MD into our ever-expanding circle of friends.

Kirk is an IT specialist and Jan has been a flight attendant with American Airlines for 20+ years. She is on a part-time schedule now, working only a couple days a week. It was a real pleasure to spend time taking with this couple. There's a common thread that runs through these meet-ups. We all love Myrtle Beach, and with that as a starting point it's easy to move on to so many other subjects that we often find ourselves engrossed in conversations and never quite ready to say goodbye. So it was with Kirk and Jan. They have a 13-year old daughter, Kelly, who brought along her friend Elean. The teens were shopping in Coastal Grand, as only teens can shop! I guess they found plenty of stores that were anxious to take their money because they arrived at Abuelo's with several bags between them. It was good to meet them and see that they are enjoying their vacation so much.

As always, I was looking forward to catching up with Katie and Brett and Colleen and Brian. Noelle and Kylie were outfitted in matching dresses and you couldn't find two cuter or better behaved little girls in the state of SC. As we stood outside Abuelo's chatting after dinner, I was thinking what a special group of people they are, and how proud I am to call them my friends.

I did not take any pictures tonight, but Katie had a camera, so she will post later.

Thanks to all!

Kirk, thank you for picking a meet-up date that allowed Brian and I to attend...we so enjoyed meeting you, Jan, and the girls as well as getting to spend time catching up w/ Patrish, Wally, Katie, Brett, and two of the most well behaved toddlers I have ever met! Kudos to the outstanding parenting Brett and Katie do!

The night at Abuelos was so enjoyable and relaxing (except when a waitress dropped a tray of drinks right behind poor Katie and she got a small shower whether she wanted it or not! :shock: Typical, sweet Katie wasn't even upset!) The food was excellent but I believe it tasted better than ever because it was shared in the company of friends. What amazes me most about these meet-ups is how easy it is too meet new members, yet feel as though you've known them for years. It only takes a moment to discover we all have one big thing in common - A LOVE FOR MYRTLE BEACH!!!!.

Kirk mentioned that he, Jan and Kelly often make several trips to Mrytle Beach a year - here's hoping for another meet-up in the future!

Hi All! Sorry for the delay in pictures! I've been having computer issues all day (oh joy).

Patrish and Colleen said everything best. We had a great time last night. Jan and Kirk are just wonderfully friendly people with a very sweet daughter. It was a pleasure to meet them. And I always look forward to spending time with Patrish, Wally, Colleen, and Brian. They are all so special to Brett and me.

I had a great time talking to everybody. I was in the middle of a sentence at one point when suddenly my brain nerves started receiving the following message, "Your back is drenched. You don't know why. But it's time to start gasping." Then I heard a shattering crash and realized the waitress had just dropped her tray of drinks, and a glass of water had poured down my back. A little chilly, but just water. I was secretly hoping for a free meal out of it, but I guess I was too forgiving, and they decided it wasn't necessary to do anything for me. Note to self... "Got to show more displeasure and angst!" :lol:

Here are a few pictures. I'm leaving out the picture of Colleen and Brian, because unfortunately it didn't come out well (I need to work on my photography skills). Sorry guys!! :cry:

Another great meetup! And the food was excellent too. This was our first time at Abuelo's. The food and atmosphere was wonderful. Thanks for suggesting it, Kirk!!

Katie, you're lucky it was just water! My cousin had two beer sampling trays accidently spilled on her when we went to a microbrewery for dinner one time. Or imagine if it had been a soft drink and how sticky that would have been!

Sounds like another fun meet-up.

All - Jan and I also had a wonderful time. Anyone that has reservations about attending a meet-up, ya just got to do it ! While our group seemed relatively small compared to other meet-ups, the company was fantastic ! A great core group of locales and a great time was had.

Gotta admit, Katie/Brett - you are blessed with those kids. Are they really that well-behaved "behind the scenes" ?

See you all soon !
Kirk, Jan and Kelly
