I was joking that we were taking a vacation before vacation, but in truth, K- and I both needed some down time away from packing and the house that will not sell.

We met my cousins and my immediate family in Saugatuck/ Douglas Michigan. These are the same cousins that we took trips to Cape cod with back in the day. Eight people in my family and 5 cousins have somehow grown to 25 kids and 29 adults.

Walking on the beach last night as the sun began to set I watched the silhouette of 15 young kids running on the beach. It looked like “Lord of the Flies” and trust me no one over the age of 18 has the conch.

Hey there, Nice you were able to get some time away to de-stress with your family. I'm sure it was well needed and a welcome break from all the packing etc. :)

I've been trying to come up with a cutting remark, but I'm so consumed with jealousy that I'm stumped. Jealous rages suit me, though.

Anyway, off topic, I thought you might enjoy this story and the comments that follow it.

Say hi to everyone.

Lord of the flies indeed. Someday a real rain is gonna come and we will all be living in that dystopia (utopia?).
