Trouble with a possessive pronoun.

0

I'm trying to say my family and a friends family went on vacation together. Would it be grammatically correct to say, " My and Sue's family went on vacation last summer. " Or " Mine and Sue's family went on vacation last summer."

'Sue' should come first.  Family should be plural.

 

Sue's and my families went on vacation last summer.

 

This is kind of awkward.  Another way to write it would be:

 

Sue's family joined my family on vacation last summer.
