Summer Vacation

(At least) Once a year the husband's (core) family tries to get together. Ever since his younger sister got married and we added another family's claim to the available holidays, this has gotten more difficult and so the idea of an annual family reunion was born.
This year the clan got together in South Carolina's Muyrtle Beach for family fun for a week in a rented beach house.
Surprisingly enough all nine of us enjoyed the family vacation, nobody got murdered and we're still talking. How awesome is that?

We had a rollicking time and I thought I'd share a few pictures with you. Granted, us Florida folks are mighty spoiled when it comes to beaches but we did enjoy the tourist attractions you find all over the place and discovering new restaurants (Duffy Street Seafood Shack - try the pirate platter; you won't regret it).

Looks like an east coast LA

We really loved Ripley's Aquarium

Little known fact: Yours truly did some diving in her youth and got to snorkle with white tip reef sharks during a vacation on the Maldives. I've been madly in love with sharks ever since.

Squishy hugs from Little Man

There was minigolfing

And yes, we're geeky enough to enjoy a game of MagiQuest.

And lots and lots of delicious food!
