Getting ready for vacation. 14 mix and match family members, but I feel the need to provide- we've rented a house in the Outer Banks. I realize I have control issues. I just can't control how much toilet paper I can fit into a two-door Honda Civic. I'll just leave my suitcase behind. (And be deleriously happy with the fellowship!)

Just get one of the giant packages from Costco and tie it to the top of the car.

Wow - that was my thought - there's a Walmart on nearly every corner these days. Surely you can find one if you run out of something. We did the big family vacation the year my son graduated from High school in 2004. The last time I was at the beach was 2009. I'm so jealous! Can you fit me in your suitcase?

We're staying way up in Corolla. I just bought enough staples to get through the first day. Yeah, bulk from Sam's. I've been shopping on arrival day before, and it's brutal. Food will follow on Sunday. Pizza for everyone!

Kathy, I can fit you in my suitcase; just can't fit the suitcase in the car. I just found my girls' boogie boards. They're grown and gone, but they'll be there, so I'm bringing them. I miss my minivan!

For many years my whole family rented a 7 or 8 bedroom house on the Outer Banks and all 18 of us joined up and had a great week together. I treasure those memories. I hope you guys have a wonderful time!! :icon_happy:

We just had a week at the beach with 16 of us. Each couple (5) took a night to provide the food for all. The last two nights 2 couples took a night. Breakfast and lunch were the responsibility of each family for their own food.

I hope you have a wonderful time. I would need a week alone on an island to recover.
