Let's Talk About the Vacation 'Stache
Dentist husband comes from a family of nine kids. Every three years, we take a trip to Newport Beach, CA and have a glorious week of family togetherness and beach fun. Honestly, I love my husband's family.
About 10 years ago, instead of going to the beach, my father-in-law took us on a cruise. On the cruise, Dentist husband invented the "cruise 'stache." It was awful and I was almost embarrassed to be with him but since we were traveling with two kids and I was 7 months pregnant (yes, you read that right), I had no choice.
Ever since then, on family vacations, Dentist husband and his brothers and brothers-in-laws grow a "vacation 'stache." This year was a banner year for vacation 'staches and many of the men grew them ahead of time. Dentist husband got a late start because I didn't let him have one at my 20 year reunion, which was just the weekend before.
The whole crew, including my father-in-law. He was a first time participant.
Dentist husband with the "Ray Byes" which was a man in his church growing up. His brothers and sisters saw him and all said, "Hey, you are growing a Ray Byes!" Little does this man know, his mustache is famous.
Sibling #7's husband.
Sibling #8's husband's chin beard. This doesn't do it justice in that it was very creepy in real life.
Sibling #5 husband
Sibling #1. He started growing his weeks before the reunion.
My father in law
Sibling #6 husband
I forgot to take one of two people, Sibling #2 and Sibling husband #4. But, I found this hilarious picture taken at the Luau a few days before. The man holding the baby in the back is Sibling Husband #4 and the one next to my husband is sibling #2 and he is a surgeon. I know. Hard to believe. (Actually, they were doing hilarious poses for everyone during a photo shoot of all of the men. These two are HILARIOUS together.)
Anyway, it was a great trip. We love Newport.
