A family reunion, traditions, and memories in the making
Wednesday, February 12, 2014
Hey guys what are we going to do?! We are a bunch of intelligent, self motivated people. We have big ideas and not much stands in the way of us working towards what we want. We have all had big challenges thrown at us in life and we have somehow managed to come through them with our chins up and eyes looking forward. So what the heck?! All of us would arguably say that one of the things that we cherish and look forward to most are the times our family has spent together at Whiskeytown Lake. We have all grown up there. We know all the campsites, the coves along the lake and all the best running and hiking trails. We know where the best spots are to fish and how to make it through a rainy weekend. We know where to go to find the smooth spots on the lake for the best water skiing and where all the rope swings are. Our families have bonded with grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and second cousins. How many kids do you know who have good relationships with their grandmothers siblings? Or their moms cousins kids...? Thats the stuff people only joke about, but its reality in our family. One of the biggest reasons for this is the week we have always spent together camping at our favorite lake. So all of a sudden we get one idiot president and ridiculous government furlows and our beloved group site is shut down, and this giant group of motivated intelligent people hang their heads down in defeat and let go of a 40+ year tradition?! Heck no! We need to make plans people we need to figure out what we are going to do because I don't want to just sit by and let this opportunity to keep our family close pass through our fingers. What are we going to do? Ideas...ready, set go!
