1. A Dream Vacation
While many call Myrtle Beach a vacation destination, the Schoonover Family called it home. And they loved their home! Over time, the Schoonovers became a big part of the North Myrtle Beach community. Over the years, they gave up their time and interests for school events and sporting events, as many parents do. But now, they were done, as their daughters had grown into adults.
And while many vacation in Myrtle Beach, husband and wife Karen and Chip Schoonover wanted a well-deserved break. And now that their daughters were grown, they knew they were old enough to handle themselves alone for a couple of days. So, the couple decided to treat themselves to a week-long getaway in December, returning just before Christmas. Little did Karen and Chip know what their four daughters would get up to while their parents were away…
2. Four H’s
Even before she became pregnant with their first child, Karen and Chip created a fun naming convention for their children, one that would also all bring them closer together. As each new daughter joined the Schoonover family, the parents gave them a name that started with the letter H.
Soon, the Schoonovers had their first child, Heather. Then came Hollie, Halice, and Haley! Over the years, the daughters grew incredibly close, closer than most sisters. Partly in thanks to their name! By the time Karen and Chip left on their vacation, Heather had already tied the knot and moved away. Thankfully, she didn’t live too far away, and could keep an eye on her sisters while her parents were on vacation.
