Memorial Day Weekend is something I always look forward to. Summer is my favorite time of the year, I love the hot weather and having the kids home from school.
We decided to kick off our summer with a two night camping trip to the Shenandoah Mountains – away from the hustle and bustle, no showers no phone service. Aside from the natural beauty that was surrounding us, one of the very first things we discovered was that there really are bears in the mountains. I won’t lie, I was a little nervous, seeing a bear immediately upon entering the park. Luckily, that was our one and only visit from a bear. Our best friends came, this was our third camping trip with them. Chris’ brother’s family also joined us and they were a great addition to our trip.
We made it back early on Sunday. Monday we made our annual pilgrimage to the “pool opening”. I’m thrilled that despite all of the time we spend at the pool, my kids still love going.
Summer marks a crazy time for us, the girls club swim and swim with their summer team. We have weekly summer league meets, along with several club long course meets.
Despite the madness I love it. As we finish out our school year I definitely feel like I am in “Ready, Set, Go” mode. Let the fun begin.
