For the first time, we are going on a 1-week vacation to the east coast as a family. Us, two other families from church, and a couple of singles have rented a beach house on Emerald Isle in North Carolina for a week of relaxing on the ocean. Today is our first full day here.
The trip down here was ideal. We left at around 8:00 pm on Friday as Nathaniel was going to sleep. And he slept in the car like a champion until 6:00 am the next morning! By that time we were in Durham North Carolina; I took a 5-hour energy drink for the first time, and they do work.
So we started our vacation last night with pizza for all, and cigars for the guys, and today, our first full day, we went to the beach and introduced Nathaniel to the ocean and are now watching the football game. It is amazingly relaxing to worry about NOTHING. My goal this week, is to have no goals, and to truly relax and refresh. The only worries I have are my wife and my baby. But I’ll tell you what, it’s been working so far. It feels wonderful to relax, to really relax.
