We arrived at  Jacksonville,Florida last night  9p.m after one full day flying and transfering from airport to airport. It was a very long trip because of the tight security at every airport.We had to check in and out, then go to the planes. We were so tired that we went to sleep right away, no dinner at all.

Waking up around 8 a.m, Mom could not wait going to the beach :Mom’s favorite vacation place after Vietnam.  We went to the beach this morning .  It is about 1/2 hour from our grandpa’s home. We got there early. There were not too many people,  and the sun still rested low on the horizon.  We got our surfing boards in the water , but there weren’t too many big waves to push the boards any where.  So I just floated on the board.  Kevin and Scott played with the sand, building a sand castle.

After a while, Kevin got bored and he started to throw sand at me.  It wasn’t very nice, but he kept going and I cried about 5 times til he stopped.  Mom swam full speed.  She has been in the water the whole time;  my Dad got sun burned like a lobster because he sat by the pile of clothes to guard the keys of the car (Dad is always a careful man) while Mom ran away with the water.

Dad kept motioning Mom to come up to guard the pile so that he can go to cool down in the water. Mom kept ignoring him so he was stuck on the beach, being roasted by the sun the whole time.  Poor Dad. Our uncle, Lap, burried us deep down under the sand up to our necks Scott had a hat and a pair of sun glassesand kept wagging his head and smiling the whole time.

After a few hours of sun and sea, we went to the Golden Corral restaurant (Kevin’s favorite place:  all you can eat heaven).  He had salad, then 2 full plates of Macaroni, and a bowl of ice cream in the end.  We have been here 3 days now, and we went “all you can eat” 3 times. I wonder what will become of us at the end of this vacation, which will be 11 more days in Florida.

I stop and go to rest now since I am very sleepy after a full day in the sun.  Hope you all have a nice summer vacation. Kelly Nguyen.
