The Romney family, 30 in all, began their annual week-long summer vacation Saturday at Mitt Romney's lakeside estate in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. The highly orchestrated week is spent playing sports, including a competition called the "Romney Olympics," reports the Washington Post.
The Romney Olympics have long included a mini-triathlon of biking, swimming and running that pits Mitt and his five sons and their wives against one another. But after Mitt once nearly finished last, behind a daughter-in-law who had given birth to her second child a couple of months earlier, the ultra-competitive and self-described unathletic patriarch expanded the games to give himself a better shot.
The adults also take time in the evenings to have serious family meetings.
At night, the adults gather for family meetings, with each evening focused on a frank and full discussion of a different son’s career moves and parenting worries.
In the Romney family, the trips to Wolfeboro are mandatory, according to the Post's story.
