Like I said in the first post I wrote about vacation, the fun really started on Wednesday last week.
Do you have some family members that are just fun on a whole other level? Or maybe crazy on a whole other one? We do. & Wednesday is when they came.
.Huge family on the beach.
.Holes: beach version.
My mom's oldest sister is 20 years older than her & therefore, has a daughter who's only 2 years younger than my mom, my cousin, Suzie.
Suzie is a party planner. It's what she loves to do. & I'm not talking like put on a little music and have a cookout, no ... I'm talking themed, games, coordinating food, the works.
Since 7 of the 21 family members who were at the beach with us have birthdays in July, it's the perfect time for Suzie to plan a party & that's what happens every year.
Not to mention, she has 3 girls who are seriously off the hook.
One of my cousins who isn't related to them looked at me on the beach on Wednesday & said, "if you wanted to start your own reality show, you wouldn't even have to do anything. Your family is enough!" & it's true.
The party was vintage boardwalk themed so we played hot potato, bingo & rubber duck pull all before the corn dogs, popcorn & cupcakes came out. We listened to beach music & sang happy birthday.
The party is cheesy overload every year & the youngest family members are 14 now & even they know it's a little silly now, but as cheesy as it is, we all have a lot of fun & make great memories.
More great stuff happened (I shopped! A lot) Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday but you'll hear about it in part 3!
