Summer vacation!

School was done on Thursday, and on Friday we left for our summer family vacation destination, Sanibel Island, FL! This was our 10th year vacationing in Florida as a family. Somewhere around the 3rd or 4th year, what started as an interesting destination, turned into a family tradition ... one that all the kids (and there are 10 of them now!) look forward to each year. We spend the entire week on the island, with nothing to do but spend time together in the pool and on the beach. All of the kids are busy swimming, looking for shells, and catching fish! Below are a few of our favorite pictures from the trip!


Here are all 10 of the kids, together on the beach. The crazy antics of the uncles got all the kids laughing and smiling at the same time.

Here's the whole crew ... my family, all 18 of us.
