I'm bumming. My vacation is over as of 5:30 tomorrow morning. I don't know if I can handle it. I had such a great week. We did the party on sunday. Monday was a cookout at my brothers house. He bought 30 lobsters, 20 pounds of steamers and some steak for my daughter and I because neither one of us like lobster. We swam and hung out with most of the crew. My oldest brother, his wife and their 2 kids left on monday morning, so we didn't get to hang out with them too much. On tuesday, third oldest, his wife and their kids, my parents and 2 of my kids and I went to the Kangamangus highway. We did a little hiking, a little wading, and a lot of sightseeing. On wednesday, 21 of us went to Canobie Lake Park. My mom even went on some rides with us. Just not the corkscrew! She waited patiently as we went on it, got off it and decided it was too much fun not to do it again a few more times. Thursday, 14 of us went to the beach. The kids had a blast splashing in the water. It was a novelty for the kids from Alaska. We all had lunch and packed up just as the clouds rolled in and the rain started.Friday was suppose to be a cruise thru some old forts in the area. Being New England and all, the weather didn't cooperate so we ended up not doing that. That was fine by me though, I needed a little break in the action.
The best part of all of it was spending time with my family and getting to know my nieces and nephews better. All of it was paid for out of the family fund we set up almost a year ago. Its something I wish we could do every year, but I don't see that happening. Its nice to have something to look back on though.
