July 27- Summer Memories
Saturday, July 27, 2013
This week's 1st blog challenge for Aspire and Inspire BSG challenge is to remember some fond summer memories.
Some of the things that I remember the most is traveling in a big conversion van (no tv) with my family and camping across the country! We went everywhere with the van and tent. After a few weeks together- we always picked at each other- since there were 4 of us kids, but the places we saw and experienced were priceless!
We traveled to most of the states. The first time we ever stayed in a hotel, I was 12 and the only reason we did was because the campground was flooded and tents were floating away (ah, North Dakota).
I loved camping, playing in the rivers and creeks, and seeing odd roadside attractions. My father's favorite pastime was to take us to all the reservations, antique stores, and tons of museums.
I wouldn't trade all these travels for the world!!! Now, I am finally closing in on reaching all 50 states, most of the Canadian Providences.
