Well, we're back home from OC, NJ...so sad to see vacation come to an end. I'm trying to convince Todd that technically we are responsibility-free through Monday, but once you're back staring everything in the face, (or it staring at you...)it is admittedly harder to relax.
Anyway, we had a GREAT time away as a family. We've decided that we need to make family vacation a priority and are trying to think of creative ways to make some extra cash to designate specifically towards it for next year. The place we stayed in was great; about 1 1/2 blocks from the beach, fully equipped with all the comforts of home including dishwasher and washer/dryer (which my husband was so wonderful to keep up with all the laundry while we were there, so when we got home today it only took me about an hour and a half to have everything unpacked and put away, with no mountains of laundry waiting for me!!). We had tons of fun on the beach, at the aquarium and the zoo, walking the boardwalk every night, hanging out in the arcade, playing games (hide-and-go-seek is so much fun in a new place - especially one with TONS of closets!!)and just generally being together. While it was tons of fun, we are coming to accept the simple fact that vacation with 4 kids is not exactly RELAXING (or at least not what WE think of as relaxing!!) Oh, well, from what I hear, we should enjoy FUN now, and look forward to RELAXING a few years down the road (we'll need it after all this fun!!). I guess rather than give any more details, I'll just post a 'photo journal' of The Official Clemmer Family Vacation '07. Enjoy!
