« my sister rocks! | Main | excuse me, it's just not possible »

you know it's a vacation when...

you've finally settled into the beach house, been to the beach, started a good book and have begun to completely "chill."

Every June, for the last 24 years, David and I have gone on a family beach vacation with his family.  For the most part we've rented the same house for the same week.  Sure there's been a few years where we switched things up a bit, but we've ultimately found a house that suits us and we keep coming back.

Here's a very typical look at the Pitts' week at the beach --

We read, nap, some of us go to the beach and definitely we eat well.

The first 2 nights, David's mom usually cooks.  Then David's sister prepares something yummy.  Tonight she's fixing Spaghetti.  Tomorrow I will be fixing Country Style Steak over rice and perhaps butter beans.  I will also cook again on Wednesday as David's brother & wife didn't come to the beach this year so we're short a rotation of cooking detail.  The wedding of our niece Sara last weekend must have been all the excitement they could stand for one year!  Our nephew Adam, however, decided he was still up for a beach trip so we brought him home with us.  I've not decided what's on the menu yet for Wednesday, but I guarantee it will be something relatively simple!  (I'm on vacation!)

Next week brings my family and a very, very different vacation dynamic!  The energy level will increase an amazing amount!  But it will be just as wonderful as this week... just different.  I'm so very happy that Adam will get to stay for a few extra days to spend time with my family!  I just wish he could stay all next week.

Thanks for reading.  I'll keep you posted on what's cooking for the rest of this week and next!

Dixie, I am actually reading a book this year! It's "Fly Away Home" by Judith Kelman. 12 chapters in. It's not bad.
