Each October, for several years now, we meet up with our friends at the beach for an extended weekend. This has come to be something we really look forward to and count on each year. It is a refreshing time that we just get to stop our real lives here and enter a dreamworld of sorts.
This year we had 15 of us, 3 families; 6 adults and 9 kids. We cooked and ate together with our friends, never going out, except for groceries of course. We played and played again. We talked, laughed, and played games. We enjoyed the ocean, sand and sun. The weather was gorgeous!
Here are several of my favorite photos from our trip.

Everyone cleaned up for dinner time. Lesley and Jason had prepared all the fixings for burritos.

Kids playing dollar ball with Scott. He throws it super high and whoever catches it gets a dollar. After awhile it became more like chocolate chip ball.
All of us.
