Memorial Day Weekend

Well, We went to the cabin. We rented it at Trace Lake.. The weather was perfect.. My husband's sister and her family came out too. There was fishing, 4-wheeler riding, cooking out, hiking and bike riding.. I even went shopping in Tupelo Saturday. I went to visit where I used to live. Lots of ghosts there..My old house . Tupelo has grown so much since I lived there about 18 years ago. With the Toyota plant coming soon, it's getting bigger. There were lots of music festivals going on. I stopped at Ballard park and listened to some blues for a little while..
We came back yesterday afternoon.. The cabin was small for 4
I love togetherness, but that was a little too much..
Our blow up mattress for the kids got a hole in it, and I had to buy a new one.
The water was really low at the lake due to not much rain..
All in all, we had a nice time... although not much resting really. And pacing and unpacking and loading and unloading stuff. Wheew! I was tired when I got home..
Really, It's not much of a vacation, when I am having to cook for the gang..then clean up the mess. ..
I would much rather stay at a hotel and have them wait on me.. THAT's MY kind of
But.. the summer has just begun..
I hope all of you had a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.
The only photo I got was one that my sister-in-law took of Jonah with her cell phone..
Bunches of hugs.....

I love camping. I really do. The whole tent thing I actually love. But everybody else would rather be in a hotel. Now if I had to cook for them all......I'd rather be in a hotel as well. But you do it with such style and panache!
