Well we're finally back!
The past week was absolutely perfect -- beach time, shopping time, family time -- it really couldn't have been any better.
This year's theme was the Olympics: the family (all 30 of us!) divided into 5 teams/countries and each team was the country that the uncle served his mission in.
The challenges were hilarious, but I'll post more about it tomorrow.
Here's a general overview of the week in pictures and we were there over the 4th of July too! Which was a blast, minus the raging party in the beach house next door to ours, which made for some interesting confrontations haha.
Every morning I would wake up and go on a jog down the boardwalk (which was definitely one of my favorite parts of the week) and one of the beach houses had a sign that I think sums up our whole trip perfectly:
"If you're lucky enough to be on the beach, you're lucky enough"
My cousin caroline & sister anne!
Me and Mr JP find ourselves constantly matching... it must be a married thing haha.
