Labor Day Weekend means one thing for my family – The Kamp-Out at Nana and Papa’s.
This gathering of the clan is a highly anticipated last hurrah of the summer.
Massive amounts of food.
Very little sleep.
The coffee flowed as fast as the conversations.
Laughter rang out as stories were told and memories made.
We took our hammocks to new heights.
And welcomed new friends from bonny Scotland.
Who arrived as strangers and left as family.
Dear people who laughed with us and found such joy in learning our traditions.
And fell in love with our sweet corn.
And we with them.
We played games.
Went wading in the river.
Took endless rides on the Ranger.
And just sat in the sunshine, watching the littles.
Remembering the days when it was our babies who were enjoying Papa and Nana’s house.
And cherishing the fact that another generation gets the same opportunity.
We took our annual trek to ”the Rock”.
And posed for the annual picture.
And learned that a vuvuzela will attract all the cows in the neighborhood.
It was a sweet time.
A weekend full of precious moments with people we hold dear.
A true gathering of the Clan!
