I've spent the past week-plus just feeling so full from our vacation that I couldn't even write about it! I still can't quite find the words.
Three families, one beach house. We were a little hesitant about this at first - we've had beach trips before during which nobody wanted to play in the sand, and we weren't sure if spending an entire week under the same roof as our friends was really a good idea. But it was awesome! Every commune-it-up day was just amazing, and the week went by much too quickly. Everybody played hard, the kids all enjoyed each other intensely and slept hard at night, worn out from so much fun. The adults stayed up way past our bedtimes and tag-teamed cooking and cleaning and child care. There was sun and sand and surf, nature galore, clam bakes and big breakfasts, gin and whiskey and beer, Shirley Temples for the kids, video gaming and light house climbing and hot tubbing, mermaid fantasies and bug biology lessons. Oh, it was so GOOD!
(...and so good that I took over a thousand pictures, and whittled them down to just over 200 that are waiting for you in a flickr set. Come see!)
