As a child, I have great memories of camping with my brother, sisters, mom, dad, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. We would swim, go on adventures and discover new treasures. It was a tradition, we went camping every year.
Most traditions are held close to the heart and cherished as we grow older. I hope this will be true for my grandkids. Summer 2011, marks the first annual “Grand Vacation.”
Isn’t it gorgeous? JD, Addi, Wes and I camped at Daingerfield State Park. The kids played great together and didn’t even argue about having to wear lifejackets the whole time. I know…when did I get so paranoid?
We swam, we walked and walked and walked, did I mention we walked and played on the swings and slide.
It’s Rodeo Time!
JD “Cowboy” Smith wore that bull out.
Addi went the whole 8 seconds.
And Wes decided that bull without the legs should stay in the barn!
Addi wanted to go to a waterpark for her birthday but what do you do if there isn’t one close by…you bring the waterpark to Marietta!
Well, today is the last day of my vacation and I think it has been pretty grand!
