Vacation, All I've Ever Wanted

For the past two years, I've gone on vacation with my family. Two parents, two brothers and one sister-in-law. We enjoy our week in Orange Beach, drinking Malibu and Pineapple and trying not to kill one another.

We do things like this:

And this. And if we've had enough to drink, or we're really having a good time, we'll even do this. It gives new meaning to the expression, "Like father, like son."

Amy, I'm sorry I didn't get in a picture of you. You were always holding the camera. Unfortunately, this year there will be no Netherton Family Vacation. My brother and his wife are taking a cruise. And Ty and I will be doing this with about six other couples:

We've rented a houseboat on Lake Ouachita. The boat has six bedroom, a hot tub and a water slide. It should be interesting. We're taking two ski boats to enjoy other recreational activities, but I'm really looking forward to just relaxing for a couple of days. Saying goodbye to work, regrouping and not worrying about a thing.

However, there could be some trouble on-board. Come to find out one of our friends doesn't know how to swim. She didn't know we would actually be sleeping on the boat. Oops. Let's just hope there's no man overboard.

Count down to Aug. 14.

I'm not joining our family vacation this year either. I swore them off after last year's fiasco.

This looks like fun!

I don't remember what you guys did last year?

I'm forcing her to wear a life jacket at all times. She can fall overboard that way and if for whatever reason we are slow to come to her rescue, she'll just be bobbing there in the lake. I can't imagine are reflexes are going to be anything less than cat-like though.

Lauren said she got in the water last year at the beach, so now I'm really confused. Can Laura swim or not?

With Aqua Ty on board, we should be able to save her life no prob.

I'm surprised the boy doesn't have webbed-feet as much time as he's spent in the water.
