“There is no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.” Mark Twain
This describes my vacation perfectly. 10 people; 5 of my in-laws, 1 niece (2 1/2 years old), 1 nephew (7 months), and Aaron, Ellie (20 months) and I, spent 5 days at the beach together. Spent it in an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, miniscule camper. Yes, I said C A M P E R!
It wasn’t that bad really. No one at church believed me. But I am the absolute luckiest girl I know. I have marvelous in-laws. Sometimes I think I get along better with them than my own family. I love my family, do not get me wrong, but my in-laws are soooo easy going.
I got burnt slap up on Monday. So bad that I couldn’t stand the sun on my shoulders until Wednesday. We went outlet shopping. I ate like a stuck pig and gained about 3 pounds. But I had a blast! Ellie had so much fun, she is such a water rat. She loved the ocean! She is so brown now, she looks like a little Indian!
I got lots of good reading done too. I finished Ireland, which is a HUGE novel and now my like one of my favorite books EVAH! And I got to read almost 200 pages of gods in Alabama on the way home. It was also great. I will post my reviews too.
All in all, it was a great vacay but I am glad to be home!
