We are back!!

V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N!! What a great word!

We are back from a 5 day stay in Bethany Beach, Delaware! We are so blessed that we can stay at my sister-in-laws, dad’s trailer. It works so well for our family, with 2 bedrooms, a kitchen, and 2 bathrooms, it’s hard to go wrong. It’s about 3.9 miles from the beach. Yes, we are they type who measure these things!

Anyway, we had such a nice family time! We purposely don’t let the kids bring friends on vacations, this way they are stuck hanging out with each other, and mom and dad. 🙂 Tricky aren’t we??!!! So we make the most of our time and do lots together! We all rode in the waves together at the ocean, rammed each other with bumper cars on the boardwalk, ate too much junk food, played arcade games, watched this movie, which we all liked, and we played football on the beach together one night, while the moon was out.

Thought you might like to see a few pictures.

I love The Inventor’s facial expression on this picture!

All of us enjoying a night on the boardwalk.

We went out on a pier, overlooking Ocean City, Md.

Just a shovel and sand, and The Inventor was a happy girl!

This is a bit scary I know, but, yes that is me riding in a wave!!

  1. Looks like great fun!!!

    The best part of the beach for me is sunrise, walking on the beach, singing to Jesus!!!

    Yes I love the sunrise also! 🙂 Another thing we have in common.
    I got up early each morning and went to the beach. I brought my iPod along so I was singing to Jesus also.

  3. That looks like fun, but you are braver than I about riding the waves!

    How fun! The wave riding looks like a riot. I’d love an ocean beach vacation.

    The issue of bringing friends on vacation has never come up for us. The kids have never asked. Although this year we did make strict guidelines about texting friends and when it could be done while we were on vacation! My daughter, the one with the phone, was very respectful of it, so all was good.

  5. Sounds a lot like our Daytona Beach vacation last month – WONDERFUL!

  6. Oh I agree about “not bringing kids friends on family vacation so family can bond – parent and kids.’ If only I my husband would agree 😉

    Anyway, looks like you guys had a blast! I’m happy for you 🙂

  7. Oh.. looks like you had a blast!!!! Glad you had a great time!!
