Family Camping Trip

Well, I thought I’d get a few posts scheduled for while I was gone, but as you can see that didn’t happen.

And where have I been?  Why camping with my family, of course.  We headed up to Hendy Woods, a state park in the redwoods that we’ve camped out forever.  We all love it there, and we had another wonderful time.

"We" includes my parents, my brother and sister-in-law, my niece, and my nephew.  As always, being around my niece is special since she loves her uncle Mark.  Of course, the feeling is quite mutual.

I drove up on Thursday, and fortunately, the traffic wasn’t that bad at all.  Hit a little trying to leave town, but after that it was smooth sailing.

Friday, some family friends came and visited us for a couple of hours, which was fun.

Other than that, we played games (and I won a couple I usually lose at!), walked the trails, roasted hotdogs and smores, and generally had a wonderful time together.

I drove back yesterday, and traffic wasn’t a problem again, except for an accident I got caught behind that added over an hour to my drive time.  It was right at the end of the trip, too, and I was so ready to be home!

Anyway, it was great to just relax and be together.  We had a blast, and we were all sorry to see it end.
