Day 23 of 30 Day Blog Challenge- Favorite vacation

I have lots of favorite vacations taken over my life time, but one I have been thinking about is from the Summer of 2006. My parents rented a beach house at the Jersey shore- LBI Long Beach Island.
All 27 of us for one week...12 adults and 15 kids! It was a perfect location and an amazing house with a killer porch. The reason it's on my mind is because they rented the same house and we are all gathering again this summer. I can hardly wait. It's getting harder and harder to get together as the kids get older and busier. So this may be the last time we are together in one spot for awhile.


The show Jersey Shore ruined the Jersey Shore.....where we go it's not like the show! Though beyond mini golf and Bay Village I'm not sure what happens! I'm looking forward to lazy days on the beach, cocktails and appetizers on the porch.....card games, BBQ and trips to get a scoop of Ice Cream and lots of family fun.

It's always nice when that many members of a family can together in one place at the same time. Makes for a busy house. My wife went to LBI many years as a kid. Very nice area.

Some of the best pizza I have had in my life came from the Jersey Shore in Ocean City. It was delicious! The crust was thin and crunchy. Yummy! I hope you have a fantastic time!

Beach vacations are the best!!!! I just spent the past hour catching up your almost 30 days of blogging. Great job.
Have a fantastic week.

It's so nice to get together with extended family when it's for fun and not a funeral.

LBI is still a very pretty place to vacation. Love that house. You are going to have a blast!

Is there room for me on that porch?
I could "illustrate" your vacation for humor. You could provide that and wine in return.

Sounds (and looks) like a perfect vacation! My fave was renting a house on the beach in PEI in 2006. Who doesn't love a beach and sunsets? :)
