Like you all, we keep going back and forth on the OOT bags. I just hate giving things people will never look at or even use. It's wasted money and wasted effort. We're not one to do things "just because." The current front-runner is a tote bag per family filled with: two beach towels for the adults, a bottle of tequila (Mexico wedding), key card holders, and goodies of some sort for the kiddos. But even with only 22 adults and 6 kids, this is adding up really quickly! Also, finding large decent beach towels this time of year is proving to be quite challenging!
We may just scrap the whole thing and take everyone on an excursion! More fun and better memories!
