Our summertime tradition

Lauren and I both went to the same college for undergrad and we graduated the same year.

Nine years ago we decided that we would get together for one weekend every summer with 3 of her college roommates, their spouses and kids. And we would take turns hosting.

This weekend the tradition continues. We are out on long island, in one house for the weekend. Our respective families have grown quite a bit over the last nine years. Between all of us there are thirteen kids all under the age of 14. And there are 8 adults. It’s a big group.

At this point I’m sure it would be much easier to rent hotel rooms at some vacation destination. But this is now our tradition and we look forward to each summer.

And I don’t see that ever changing.
