I married into an Acronym Loving Family. They are the Kings and Queens of Acronyms. (Mainly the male side of the family. Us females just tend to say actual words.....) So what is the Title of this post? I have no freaking clue. But it's what my father in law called our family vacation. I think it's supposed to be something like Fischer Annual Family Fun Vacation. Or Five Apes Flying For Victory. Or Finally Another Fischer Family Vacation. Or Find Another Fifty Five Vodkas. I don't know......something like that.

Anywho - No matter what it is called, we went, we played, we laughed, we drank, we fished, we hiked, we shared, we shopped, we laughed some more, and basically, we had a much needed freaking good time!

And I mean it when I say I am so blessed to have married into this family. I know that in-law relationships can be tricky and things don't always go perfectly, but dang if these people don't know how to support us and have a good time! I laughed so hard that my stomach literally hurt for like two days. And this was in the midst of Owen tanking and us knowing we were most likely going to end up at the hospital upon return. We did.

But that's another story for another day. This story is about family and fun!

I love this picture of Emma Grace walking and talking with her Grandma.
(I imagine they were talking Harry Potter.........)

And these two. Oh dang. 
If only everybody could only be lucky enough to hang out with them.
 Seriously. Stomach hurts. It was a good ab workout. ;)

"I'm all about that bass. Bout that Bass. No Treble."


Uncle Kevin is so so good to this lil' guy. He played this game over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.


Love these Fischer Men, who are apparently now models? Who knew? I'm pretty sure this picture will be in GQ next month. Tennis shoes, flannel shirts, and Redskins apparel are all the rage right now.........

So to sum up? 
We had an awesome time.

Thank you Grandma and Chips for opening your home and pushing to make this happen! It was so so so so so so so so so so so much fun. 

Can't wait for Thanksgiving and more abdominal exercises!


  1. Most of these pics were ones I hadn't seen so I laughed along w/them remembering the before/during/after of each event! I am SO blessed to know in-law interactions have survived another Fischer fest of any kind! We are blessed with daughter-in-laws that sure do love our sons a lot cause they've learned to roll with just about anything....and the multiple changes along the way (another Fischer Male trait). My heart was filled with such joy that we had this memorable time together and seeing cousin connections! Acronyms abound but it does all come down to fun! (or is that FUN.....)

  2. You take amazing pictures! So glad you had a great time.
