Vacation 2011

We had a wonderful vacation this year! The weather wasn’t the best, but we made it work. We had fun being together enjoying each others company. It was also fantastic to see the kids playing with one another. Can’t wait until there are even more of them!!! (I know… I’m crazy)

Our family headed out around 3:30am last week and made it to our beach house around 11am. It was great getting in there early and feeling less like our day was wasted by just driving. That was nice. When we got there, we noticed a lot of things were not very well put together and that the house wasn’t even ready for renters. Electronics weren’t hooked up right, beds were not made properly, things were broken and it just seemed like no one stepped into that place since last year.

This was unacceptable, so early Monday morning my mom, Brent and my husband walked themselves into the beach rental place and requested that we get our pool headed. (Yes, that’s all we wanted. We just wanted out kiddies to swim without shivering every 5 minutes, that’s all) So, when they went in there the rental company felt so bad they immediately agreed to put on the heat for free (To heat the pool for a week was $400 extra) but then came to find out that there was no heating system for the pool and they felt even more terrible so they upgraded us to another beach house which was a million times better…. See…


Score!

All in all, we had a great week. I just got done editing my pictures from that week so I would rather just give you a look into the week than really writing about it.  You can also go to my sister-in-laws blog and read about vacation and see her awesome pictures as well. 

Is that ok?!
Ok… Here they are!





 Have a great Monday!
