Only one week left until camping season's over. I think I've finally come to terms with it and am ready to move on until April. It's been tons of fun but I need a few months to recoupe.
Last weekend we kept busy with my sister's birthday, my nephew's wife's birthday, and a "betterment" event for a camping friend.
My sister is ten years older than me. We haven't always been real close due to the age gap but camping has brought us more together.
This is my niece and great-nephew at the birthday party. Look at the sleeping puppy wearing the birthday hat. Don't you just want to cuddle him up!
My sister wanted family photos of the day, so her son had everyone posing in all sorts of ways. The wind was fierce so our hair was blowing in all sorts of directions.
My daughter Shelby (on the right) hardly ever makes it to camp anymore due to job obligations. She snuck up there for a couple of hours and surprised me with her presence. Her and my step-daughter, Allyson, are BFFs.
The generosity of the campground was evidently shown Saturday night during the "betterment" for a friend with spina bifida. It's like a second family at camp and we always have each other's backs. This is my kids and a friend dancing with him, showing love and support.
Sunday we attended a birthday party for my nephew's wife. She's eight months pregnant. I'm thrilled that I'll be a great-aunt again soon.
