Our week in Newport Beach was the perfect family vacation for us right now. It was a blend of beach, biking, playing, eating and exploring. The family was split into two houses. Our house was on the beach with our family of eight (sounds crazy writing that) and my brother-in-law Ben's family. The second house was a few rows back with my in-laws, and sister-in-laws; Shannon and Emily's families. Having our house on the beach was amazing for all the times I had to run back inside, especially for the girl's naps. Our older kids and the cousins were amazing with the little kids, keeping them entertained and happy. The Friday we got there I started getting sick. By Saturday morning I was coughing uncontrollably. This was the sickest I have been in a long, long time. Sadly the entire trip was plagued by my cough and me not feeling well. I went to bed early every night it was kind of a bummer. My high light was getting the frozen banana on Balboa Island. I'm a huge Arrested Development fan… "there's always money in the banana stand."
