We just returned from our annual pilgrimage to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware This is notable because it's not just our four family.* No, it's pretty much everyone we're related to who happens to reside in the Greater Monkeytown Area including:
- Beth, Owen, Mia and I
- My parents
- My inlaws
- My brother-in-law, his wife and my three nieces
- My brother-in-law's wife's parents
Did you follow all that? Yeah. At any given time there are 16 people in the house. I'm not sure how it all works but somehow it does and everyone still likes each other at the end of the week.
We had a wonderful week. Stressful, yeah, a bit, but when you're parents you don't expect vacations to be stress-free. Better yet, it was the sixth year in a row we've managed to spend quality time with our family. And there's nothing better than that.
* This is what our kids call the four of us - Me, Beth, Mia and Owen.
