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.
