Vacation picture overload

I have 1800 photos from our family vacation/reunion in Nags Head, NC. There was lots of family, friends, fun, sun and of course drinking. Need I mention that DH and I both burned the candle at both ends (kids don't respect hangovers!) so we were fairly sleep deprived. It's a good thing that the beach is the perfect cure for hangovers. Too bad that Cameron really only had one good day at the beach. She was definitely afraid of the waves and didn't like the water in general. I'm putting it down to a phase and hope that next summer will go better!

Here is the first of potentially many picture posts from our vacation. The photos aren't exactly in order but I hope you enjoy them nonetheless.

The cousins (my generation) and their parents enjoyed a go-kart tournament. My uncle Chip even had trophies made up. The most coveted was the Toilet Bowl which Jared and Christopher won.
This is the Lazy Lizard, the house that my family stayed at. 3 levels, 8 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and still somehow not enough room for 17 people (mostly because of the 6 kids under the age of 4 - 5 of then under the age of 2).
Cameron was obsessed with her cousin Finn's backback. She carried her body weight in Matchbox cars here.
This is what my sister Allison referred to as the congregating and pooping corner.
Ned and Penny have started showing real affection for each other.
We decided on matching outfits for our professional photo shoot. I decided to give Cameron 2 naps that day since the shoot wasn't until 6:30 PM because of lighting. She did OK but most of the other little ones had major melt downs.
Despite all of her cousins around, Cameron got a lot of quality time with her parents. I think it contributed to a really easy drop off at daycare today.
All of the little girls had matching outfits for the photo shoot. Independently my sisters Allison and Kristin found the same dress for the girl cousins. Too cute for words!
Me hanging out with my grandfather (his and Mimi's 60th wedding anniversary!) and my brother Andrew. It was great to see everyone after so long.
Cameron and her cousin Lucy bang on the glass doors to the porch. The kids smiled so much that week!
