My family takes an annual trip to the beach in June, but this year with the baby they came to visit us instead. My out of town family rented a house on the lake. Monday was the only day we were all together as a group and took a boat ride (turns out my husband is an excellent "driver" of boats!) and then played a game back at the lake house. After that there were schedules to contend with: my husband and brother's work schedules, my teenage niece and nephew's sleep schedule (noon wake up) and Isabella's nap/bedtime schedule (naps were ok out and about, but had to be home by 8 for bed and frankly she started getting cranky around 6). So while it was a different type of vacation then we have experienced in the past it was wonderful being able to see my family without leaving town.
