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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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 🙂

  4. Oh, we love going to the beach each year, but we go up to Rehobeth Beach, or Lewes Beach. We had a great time too!! And as soon as the boys get out of school, we are on the road!!!

    Glad you guys had a great time!!


  5. Looks like an awesome vacation!
    We are back as of today from the Central ADKs where it was like autumn.
    Come on over for a visit….
    and good luck starting school in a couple weeks.
    Blessings to you
