Soooo… I’m a lazy bastard who hasn’t blogged all summer. Enough said. Moving on.
I just got back from a vacation on the beach, where I got sunburned, gained 4 pounds, and accidentally bitch-slapped a life guard.
I have never had so much fun in my life.
See, this is the beach I went to all the time as a kid. I remember learning to boogie board there, trying birthday cake ice cream for the first time… It was a blast. Whenever we would leave, my older sister (who is now 17) would cry every single time. It was a kid’s heaven.
We hadn’t gone in a few years. UNTIL NOW!
Now that my dad’s youngest daughter is going into high school and his oldest is leaving high school, he decided it was time to go back.
We packed our bags and left on the 6 hour drive to our favorite beach.
We arrived on a Friday at our little apartment that we rented for the week. There was one bed, so me and my sisters shared a pull-out couch and chair. Cramped, yes, but it was on the beach! Totally worth it.
It felt a little odd being back. I wasn’t a child anymore and it was no longer a running-around-like-a-crazy-person experience. We just lazed on the beach, walked to the lighthouse… it was nice, actually. Really nice.
Don’t take over the world without me.
