Our family has grown from a family of seven to a family of fourteen within a few years. Three of us got married and had kids and moved away from home, so having a family get together wasn't as easy as it used to be. Last year we decided to go on our first family vacation. We rented a beach house big enough for all of us and met each other there. Before we left we all had our list of things to do. We packed up our bags, got the groceries we needed, and set our securitychoice.com wireless security systems.
We all came from different states, and met at our destination. We chose to go to the beach in New Jersey, since it was middle point for most of us. When we got there we all claimed our rooms and unpacked the food. Every day we had a special event planned, whether we just swam at the beach or enjoyed the water skis. The grandparents watched the young children and all of the older kids went jet skiing one day. Everyone had their share of fun and responsibility. This was actually the first time my husband and I could go out a night alone, since we had babysitters in the same house. The married couples took turns each night to go out and have some fun without the kids, while during the day it was kid time.
This vacation was so much fun, we planned to do it again next year. It will be our annual family reunion filled with a week of fun activities for all of us to enjoy and relax.
