I can’t believe I have been home from my vacation for two weeks already. It ended up being a good time for all. The cabin was great and we will be going again next year. Not having someone to share the beauty and romantic nature of the area, was the only downside. I am hoping to have that special someone with me next year.
The homecoming carnival was good although way smaller than what we have at home. The kids went on some rides and played some games. The food at the carnival was great. My daughter and I shared a half dozen ears of fresh roasted corn on the cob. We also loved the BBQ sandwiches. We found a booth that was selling homemade taffy and ended up buying four boxes before we left. I listened to some country music at the homecoming. Once again my southern hillbilly roots became apparent. I guess I am just a down home girl at heart.
I did get to see some cousins at the family reunion that I hadn’t seen since I was a teenager. A couple of cousins were even in from Arizona. I have a cousin who only lives an hour away from me. We found out we get along real well and hope to get together more often. Some of the family is getting on in years and not doing so well. My kids and I have decided to try and go the same time every year. Family is very important to us and what could be better than a relaxing week in a cabin in the woods.
