Matt's mom is one of six sisters, and every summer 3 of the sisters (and their families) travel to the Outer Banks (North Carolina) for vacation. They rent a house big enough for all of them (this year there were 19 people - can you imagine if all 6 sisters and families attended!) Matt, the kids, and I joined them this year (our first family vacation with Matt's family). It was a wonderful trip, and three weeks later I am FINALLY sorting through all the pictures. Here are a few shots from the first couple of days.
It's a bit depressing to go back through all the pictures - we made such wonderful memories, and I miss the ease and pace of a beach vacation.
