Last week, we took a family beach vacation to Gulf Shores, AL. And when I say family, I mean the entire
family... from Lynn's side (my in-laws). For 6 nights, we had 29 people under one roof... And we were still missing a few people!
On paper, it sounds daunting but my aunts and mother-in-law had it under control. There was a lot of planning prior, from who's bring what to setting a daily menu... from breakfast to dinner. Even though one family would be responsible for one day of cooking, it seemed like they were always in the kitchen... helping, prepping, cleaning, etc. Hopefully they were able to enjoy themselves, to relax and make it an actual vacation.
By the second day, I was content. There's only so much you can do on the beach. And I was a bit defeated when I lost two
canopies. Our big canopy was broken on the first day when a sudden storm with strong winds blew through. Then a few days later, my aunt's big canopy flew into my personal canopy, destroying both. This beach kicked my ass. 😑
