Hubby and I haven't been since our first summer together in 2009 and that's way too long for my liking. Growing up I went every summer, usually more than once. We had wanted to take a long trip this year; but, it wasn't in the cards and so I ended up making a day run with Squishy, my mom, and my grandma. My aunt and uncle were already there with my cousins so it was a partial family party of sorts.
Click the cut for a photo bomb. Warning: Squishy is sleeping in almost, or maybe all, photos due to long car ride.

|There is a picture just like this of my mom and I when I was this big.|

I'm hoping next year to take a long weekend. It's the most relaxing place. No electricity, no internet, no cell reception. Just propane lights, fresh air, and family.
