Virginia Beach Vacation!!

So yeah, I am totally aware our vacation was the first week and June and now it's almost August. But, hey, I have been a busy girl.

This year we had a little bit of a different type of vacation. We went with 3 other families and all stayed in one house. Let me tell you, I was nervous as anything. I have done the vacation together thing twice before. One was a complete disaster and the other was OK. But now with 3 other families!!! We had a total of 12, 5 adults and 7 kids.

End result: Completely AWESOME.

Yep, we had good and bad days. Kids had good and bad moments. Overall it was great. I think the adults got closer but it was really the kids who bonded more on this trip. It was overwhelming at times to sit back and watch the friendships flourish. At times I even got teary eyed watching them interact.

So now let me leave you with a few of the 3500 pictures we took. Yes. Seriously. Between my husband and I we took just over 3500 pictures. And yes, we did have lots of time.


My adorable family


Matt forced me to go kayaking.....and I hated it. Well, ok, I went willingly but still hated it

Probably my most favorite picture out of the 3500 we took. All the kids.
