The transition back to life has been so difficult that it's taken those full two weeks to write about our awesome vacation.
Every other year the Simmons family takes two weeks away from work, school and responsibility in general to travel to "The Beach" in North Carolina.
Whenever we tell people back here in Utah about our vacation at the beaches in North Carolina, we often get the "oh, North Carolina, huh?" look, because the NC beaches are the world's best kept secret.
California and Hawaii are great and all, but we know that the East Coast is the money coast. So I say, let the world stay on their west coast.
But if you ever get the chance and time to travel east to Nags Head, or Kitty Hawk, or, in our case this year, Salvo, NC, make it happen!
Our daily routine at the beach goes like this: wake up whenever, eat breakfast, hit the beach for swimming, reading, games or just sitting, lunch, hit the beach again for more of the same with a nap as well, dinner, games, bed, repeat.
It's amazing how we can go to the beach, and all troubles and cares drift away, like nothing can go wrong there.
We'll post more photos later, but here's a few more to give to a taste of the beach.
