Well hi there!  (If anyone still bothers to read this after such a hiatus)  Sorry to have been away so long - although not sorry since a good chunk of the time away was spent on vacation, baby!  (Well, okay, it was only a week - but still - vacation, baby!)

My whole, huge family - 27 in all, which includes the 13 grandkids - 12 of which are 7 or younger, four of which are two and three of which are one...Ha! Seriously, it was really a vacation.  Big hawge house on the beach, big week-long party for kids and adults alike.  And now I will bore you with some pictures.  Because I can.

There was a pink piano (that's Pixie pretending that she can play)

There were attempts at golf (Wonderboy doesn't quite have the hang of it yet...)

There were several nights of dress-up.  Because really, what better time is there to wear your tutu or Ariel costume if not on vacation?


And don't think the boys didn't join in as well!  WB likes to mix things up a bit, combining Iron Man and Pirates.


And there were sunsets like this.  Sigh.

Oh!  And matching t-shirts.  Hello, adorableness!

I took over 900 pictures, so really, you should be thankful that you only have to look at these!  And now it's back to reality - man, what a drag.  Will try to catch up with everyone soon!

That looks like a REALLY nice vacation!

(I passed my test... kids start school this week, I'll be getting in touch with you soon! - because I've been an even better blogger than you ;)

LOVE the pink piano!

And J sent all 900 pictures to my inbox. And I was j-e-a-l-o-u-s.

I don't even had nearly that many ppl in my immediate family and certainly none that would want to spend much time together.

The pictures are remarkable. Pixie at the Pink Piano is Norman Rockwellian! Beautiful.

What better time to wear your tutu, indeed. Glad you had such a wonderful vacation!!

We used to do the family vacations with my husband's side (his parents also have 13 grandchildren) but after three of them going to the exact same place and doing the exact same things, we were ready to kill them all and said 'no thanks' to any more.

But, glad you had fun :)

Gorgeous pictures - and what a great idea to have dress up nights on vacations. I'm implementing that on our next family vacation, FOR SURE!
