This past weekend, our entire family went on sort of a trip together and had a doggone good time.  Some friends have a house and land about an hour away, and they kindly let us use it for a few days to play and relax and make memories.

And, let me tell you, we did all those things.  And when I mean the entire family, I mean the ENTIRE family.  Yes, Grace managed to get a ride from college and surprise us all.  It was delightful to have her there!

It was SUCH a great weekend.  We cooked and ate and laughed together.  (And, yes, My Wonderful Man cooked too…an impressive thing in our family.)

We shot clay pigeons and had a turkey shoot and shot guns just about every chance there was.

Some people fished and swam in the river.  (I was anti-river swimming myself, especially when Cody found a leach on his leg.  Blech)

We road Tim’s four wheeler and roasted marshmallows and hotdogs by the fire.  We played games and took naps; we stayed up late and told stories.  The weekend fleeeeeew by, and we decided that this needs to be an annual thing.
