July 4th Vacation - Chillin' at the Beach 

The "Fam" went to Kure Beach, NC this Fourth of July weekend, and it was a great time. What really made the trip worth it was watching my oldest son Liam, just love the ocean. With his "Ducky" raft around his waste (and me holding on to him) he just loved floating over the waves, and watching his cousins swim about. My littlest son Connor, although too young to really enjoy the water, or the sand, still had a good time looking at all the new things he's never seen before. He just looked around a lot and smiled. We had some great BBQ'd Tuna, Salmon, and Mahi Mahi on Sunday afternoon, thanks to my brother-in-law, Randy's expert grilling skills. It was a lot of fun. Chrissy and the Boys' vacation is still going on however. I had to come home tonight to go to work tomorrow, but Chrissy, Liam, and Connor are staying at the beach until Friday. Even though this means that I can get some "Matt time" while they're gone, I'd rather have them here. The house is TOO quiet and I've come to realize that even though I used to be someone who enjoyed being alone, now i just want my Family to hurry up and get home. Oh well...3 days left...sigh...
