Operation: Rescue Daddy

This weekend I was very excited. I was going to have my first guys weekend in a while to spend some time with brother down at Carolina Beach. I was going to drive my truck that I just had lifted and got new mud tires installed. I was going to be a great weekend of camping, fishing, and just enjoying each others company.

Fate had a different idea. I was on the way down Friday night when just when I got into Carolina Beach my truck started to shake and my truck started to smoke. It turns out my drivers side front axle broke and my drivers side tire was slanted.

So my brother came and picked me up and I stayed the night at the camp site. In the morning I called around some auto shops only to find that most were closed for Easter holiday. I finally found one that was opened. I called my wife to tell her what happened and she stopped everything and said she was on the way.

After a couple of hours I was greeted by her and my beautiful girls. She helped me get the car towed to the auto shop. What started as a guys weekend ended up as a little family vacation. We played on the beach.

Me love to beat up the ocean!

We go doughnuts at the famous Wake and Bake Doughnut Shop.

We stayed the night at BrittWhitFun’s grandma’s house at Holden Beach and then got up Sunday morning and played a little on the beach before heading home.

I honestly would not know what I would do without my gals. I love them so much and I am thankful to be a husband and father in this little family of mine. I am a lucky man.

I hope to hear back from the auto shop this week. It looks like this Saturday we will be making another impromtu trip to the beach to pick up the truck… and maybe to a little beach bumming.

Summer Adventure 5- Beach Day

So yesterday was the second day of our family vacation and we decided to spend the entire day on the beach. My father-in-law was also down at the beach with us and he brought his boat.

We packed some sandwiches, fishing poles, and some bottle water then headed to the ocean. The water was perfect and the sun was bright. We fished for a couple if hours. My father-in-law taught me how to catch fish using a net. I have to admit that I got really good at towards the end. I caught three fish. They were small but it still counts.

After we fished, we decided to head down the inlet of Holden Beach and park the boat. We got out and had a picnic lunch with chicken salad sandwiches, chips, and drinks. It was a lot of fun. We then played with K-Dub she hated to water and sand at first but then she could not get enough of it. We all got so nasty but it was a lot of fun.

After lunch and some swim time we got back in the boat for a tour of the inlet. K-Dub fell asleep on me which was nice cause she needed a quick nap. After we headed back to shore we put the boat on the trailer and went back to Nana’s house.

Nana had invited some of her friends over and we grilled hamburgers and hotdogs. I made some awesome homemade ice cream and before we knew it it was time for K-Dub to go to sleep.

It was a fun day and we had so much fun. I did get sunburned on my legs really bad. It hurts but I would do all over again if I could. Best family day ever and we are just getting started.
