Juggling Family & Career

Vacationing With Family And Friends

Vacationing with Family and Friends is a great way to do vacations!

This summer, we all packed up and headed to the beach in one of our typical family vacations, and I have to say it was a great time.  I think what we really enjoyed about it was the fact that we all get a solid week to catch up and enjoy in a relaxed atmosphere.  We even went to the beach in spite of the fact that the weatherman was predicting rain every day during our week on vacation.  Luckily, it rained only 1 and 1/2 days while we were at the beach, so it was a success from the weather front.  Quite honestly though, even if it did rain each and every day, we would still have a blast!

In previous years, we vacationed both with family and friends, meaning that we took two vacations instead of our typical one vacation.  First, obviously having two vacations rocks!  But it does get pricey…  So we cut it back to every year a family vacation, and then every 2 or 3 years we also go with friends (if they’ll have us…).  It’s a win-win that way.

Another great thing about vacationing with family, is the silly but fun games we play.  We even cheat at them sometimes and everybody still has a blast with it!  While the games may be fun, what I especially look forward to is the great seafood at the beach.  There is just something grand about eating seafood at the beach that just can’t be rivaled at home, it just seems right…  Of course there are beautiful girls and buff guys everywhere too, but I just enjoy hanging out with the family anymore, the kids are a blast and everybody enjoys them.

Hope you have a great summer,
