This week we are excited to introduce Weekend Getaway – it’s all about being together.  Long, expensive trips in far off parts of the world with  incredible food and posh living quarters are amazing.  But it’s the little things you do together that bring you closer and create wonderful memories that last long into adulthood.  Weekend Getaway celebrates the times that bring you together, both big and small.

This week we are celebrating the American Camping Trip. Complete with RV.  Matt and I were blessed to take a full weekend off and hang out with my family up in Silver River State Park.  We hiked in the woods, rode bikes, canoed, and roasted marshmallows and hot dogs over an open fire.  There’s something about a walk in the woods, crunching on newly fallen leaves, a bike ride to the boardwalk, a canoe trip on a cloudy day, the wind rustling over your tent at night.  If you’ve never tried it, this is the weekend to go!  Stop making excuses and step outside!

    Deb!!! Happened to run across your updated blog on Facebook today, which led me to your site, which of course, meant that I just spent 1/2 an hour looking through all your photos again. I love it! You really are blessed with such a great gift…I am jealous that I don’t live down near you guys anymore to make use of my cousin’s services!!! Any chance you and Matt want to take a vacation to Michigan soon?…we have EXCELLENT camping opportunities here, hint hint! Anyways, you did a great job capturing the girls on this trip. Looks like lots of fun. Love you! – Becca

    P.S. The side-by-side photos of you and Ava in your camping chairs made me laugh out loud. I’ve said since I saw her prancing around on her toes that she was your identical twin in miniature size…and these pictures prove it :-) !!

    We’ve had numerous people ask if she’s my daughter. She may be my twin or my mini-me, but she’s just my niece. It’s too funny! We miss you both! Move back soon!
