Our family vacation was awesome. We had such a great time. Oak Island is really a very nice place.
When we first got there it was really late and we got settled in a went to sleep only to wake the next morning to the ocean in our ears. One of the great things about staying at a beach house is the fact that you wake up to the gorgeous view of the sea. We came down and ate breakfast with my mom and stepdad and then headed down to the beach to have fun in the sun.
When we got down to the beach it was like something out of a horror movie. It is of course our luck that we go down to the beach during sandfly mating season. Here is a quick fact about these flies. They get on your skin and bite you to suck your blood so they can make their eggs. Let me tell you that these little things hurt. I had to come back inside and break out my iPad and google how to stop them. I found an article that said that if you you spray vinegar on your legs it will repel them. After buying vinegar and spraying it all over my body I was able to enjoy myself on the beach.
Shortly after we solved that scare, my brother and his family came down along with my Gi Gi. We played a crazy game of UNO and Trouble. My family is super competitive and it got pretty fierce. My wife call my mom a bitch but it was all in good fun.
As the days went on we spent most of the time on the beach playing with my cute niece.I gave me great practice for when my little Karsyn gets here. It made my family realize how much of a great dad I am going to be.
The week came and went really fast and before I knew it it was time to head home. I was sad to leave but thankful for the experience. My family really enjoyed their first vacation in over 10 years and have already started to plan the next one.
