My oldest sister and her family are great at taking time in the summer to go camping, boating and fishing. We’ve been wanting to join them for summer fun so we spent a weekend camping by Brooks with them and friends in August. The feeling when we left was that next summer we hope to spend longer than just a weekend! The first evening they were at the campground, there was a bike wipeout that resulted in a broken arm. Of course, being the chipper, smiley girl that she is there was excitement for everyone to sign the cast and she’s looking forward to learning to waterski next year instead. For quite a few years now, I have taken these nieces’ school photos so it was a good chance when we were together to not only do that but get some family photos too even though it was an incredibly windy day and a strong breeze coming off the lake. We are excited for their family to visit in a week and spend Thanksgiving together!!
