1. MaMa and PaPa's beach house is a magical place.
2. Spending time with family is truly a blessing.
3. 7 cousins (ages including 7, 4, 4, 4, 4, 3, 1) can have a great time doing just about anything.
4. Balloons can be a blast or just plain evil, it all depends on your age.
5. A week of eating most meals in front of the tv can be a relaxing break from day to day structure.
6. A week of "meals" meaning eating cheesy poofs from the bag or a hot dog on the fly can be fun.
7. Expecting all this fun to last into week two is unrealistic.
8. Accepting defeat and coming home before week two is complete was a fantastic decision.
We are recovering well from vaca; gobbling local fruits and veggies, snuggling into our own beds at night, playing with our toys as if they are long-lost friends. Peace.
