Family + Beach = Best Combination


Continuing on with my Rehoboth Beach posts, it's time for some family action.
No beach vacation is complete without good company...
and with my family, that means a house full of it!

Take me back...
Delicious turkey burger at Dogfish Head Brewpub (fave brewery ever!)
Brett, Jess, and Lee biking along Silver Lake
Jess & I at the beach house
Mom, Me, and Jess in the backyard
Walking along the boardwalk, heading to dinner at Obie's
Jess, Me, Brita, and Alina
Lee, Me, Brett, and Nate in our football stances... (don't even ask)
Grottos Pizza = Best. Margarita.Pizza.EVER.
We like bikes!
Dad biking along a trail
The whole gang!  Nate, Brett, Jess, Lee, Brita, Alexine, Mom, Aunt Torg, Dad, and Me (Graham & Alina missing b/c Alina was sick :( )
True words
Waiting for fireworks on the beach!
Happy Fourth of July!
Cruiser bikes as our only form of transportation, eating mass amounts of watermelon & golden oreos, sleeping in sandy beds, living off bud light lime, morning strolls to get iced coffee, dinner with an ocean view at Obie's by the Sea, hilarious night football on the beach, $3 margaritas and chips & salsa during karaoke at Dos Locos, watching Lee & Brett attempt to bike home after said margaritas, going on runs through the beautiful neighborhood admiring the gorgeous homes we'll one day live in, eating burnt veggie burgers for lunch that we forgot about in the oven while having too much fun doing something else, relaxing on the warm sandy beach under the hot sun while listening to the waves crashing on the shore, heated cornhole games in the backyard of the beach house, completely finishing 4 large Grottos Pizzas & loving every bite, sipping on some specialty brews at Dogfish Head Brewpub, jamaican rum punch at Zogg's Bar & Grill, gigantic family posse bike rides along the trails, mid-day beers & delicious turkey burgers at Dogfish, floating in the ocean for hours to beat the hotness of the sun, grilling veggie burgers, hot dogs, zucchini, & bruschetta on the Fourth of July, serious beer taste testing, watching fireworks sitting in the sand on the beach, card and dices games on the front porch that lasted into the wee hours of the morning, wandering up & down Rehoboth Ave browsing the unique shops, amazing beach fro-yo for lunch, and just enjoying the fact that we were all together under one roof (a rare occurrence) as one big happy family.

Even though we weren't able to spend the whole week at the beach with my family, we still had a blast for the time that we were there.   I love Rehoboth.  Can we go back now?!  Just say the words and I'm there! 

PS - My attempt to get my family to VLOG was a FAIL.  Haha  Just not enough time to reel them all in.  Next time... ;)  BUT I am putting together a short little fun film from our beach vacation, so stay tuned for that!
