We have been toying with possibly getting BOTH sides of my family together for a Holiday Getaway.  Men and Women - Adults and Kids!  My mom is one of FIVE and my dad is one of SIX ~ so that makes for LOTS of Aunts and Uncles and TONS of cousins!!!  It would be great for us all to meet somewhere on the east coast in between New York and Florida.  But we will see...

In the meantime I have had a BLAST looking at LARGE Group vacation rentals.  I have been surfing the web finding locations that can hold at least 50.  I even stumbled across one that has 23 Bedrooms (can that even be called a house?).

I have been stalking our first LARGE RENTAL for some time now.  It has been bookmarked in my favorites folder for several years.  I think I had been checking it out since it was in it's construction phases.
