End of Summer Getaways

Labor Day is around the corner, which means summer is officially coming to an end. If you ‘re lucky, you may have a few days to squeeze in an end of summer vacation. SharpMoms has some suggestions for you if you are looking for quiet, family oriented beaches on the east coast. Skip the hustle and bustle of Florida and pack up your family for a trip to the beaches of South Carolina, where memories will be made to last a life time.

First stop: Folly Beach, South Carolina. With Folly Beach rentals and a hotel right on the water, this small beach town packs a big bag of fun for the whole family. The beach is quiet, the peir is great for fishing, and the restaurants are super. SharpMoms suggests you stop by Rita’s for a super meal before you head back home. For more information on this beach, visit www.follybeach.com.

Next up, Edisto Island, South Carolina or Edisto Beach as it is also called. With serene beaches and a golf course right on the island, everyone is sure to stay happy during your stay! Edisto Island is a great family vacation destination and there are many beach homes and condos for rent at reasonable rates. For more information on where to stay and what Edisto has to offer, please visit www.edistoisland.com.

The best news? You are just minutes away from historic Charleston, SC if you stay at Folly Beach, and just a few more if you stay on Edisto!

Why does SharpMoms love these beach picks? Both are uncrowded and offer a wonderful family atmosphere. After your visit, let us know what you think! SharpMoms would love to hear about your stay!

Swine Flu is expected to reach an all time high as the new school year and fall and winter approach. Pregnant women were hit particularly harder last spring as the H1N1 virus. Many OBGYN’s and Primary Care doctors are leary of the new vaccine that is being produced. What are they long term side-effects? Unfortunately, no one knows for sure just yet. What we do know are some symptoms you can be aware of in case you or someone you know may be infected with the Swine Flu.

Typical symptoms include:
  • Sudden fever
  • Sudden cough
Other symptoms may include:
  • headache
  • fatigue
  • chills
  • runny nose
  • achey joints/muscles
  • loose bowels/upset stomach
  • sneezing
  • loss of appetite
You should contact your family physician if you have worsening symptoms, are pregnant, or have a child under one year of age.
