Good Times

I am anxiously awaiting this Friday. We will be leaving to meet a bunch of The Husband's family at the beach in the Carolina's. We are renting a beach house that sleeps 24! How cool is that? The Husband's pa-paw turned 90 so it is a celebration of his life, as well as the first time we've all been together in about 2 and a half years. Pretty much all of my in-laws are somewhere in Florida. Many of our friends think that is pretty cool, but it is harder to visit then most people think. First of all, the question always arises whether we should fly or drive. And, they are all spread throughout the entire state! We've decided the ideal is to buy an RV and just tour Florida to visit one month out of each year! But, alas, our surplus check won't stretch to accomodate that plan, not to mention we are using it to supplement me not working this summer!

So, it will be good to spend five days with most of them over the holiday weekend. I love, love, love and adore my sister-in-law (who is a frequent lurker on this blog!). I didn't write that just because I know she'll read this either! My SIL is one of the sweetest people I've ever met. She is usually smiling and very calmly and patiently mothers our 4 nieces and nephews. Speaking of nieces and nephews, including our girls, there are 8 cousins and mine can barely sleep at night because they are so excited to be together.

I'm ready to just relax, eat and laugh for a few days. Of course, I'll be working on my savage tan (HA!). I'm looking forward to posting lots of pictures when we get back.

That all sounds heavenly! The Boss and I have been dreaming and brainstorming a way to rent an RV for like 6 weeks some summer before Shaggy goes off to college and tour part of the country together, on a low-key laid-back route. I keep telling him we need to find another family to go with us . . . He's fine with just the (hopefully by then!) 7 of us!
