Family Vacation 2013

These pictures were taken during previous summer camping trips to the Eastern Shore.  We haven't been camping in a long time, mostly because I am too afraid to tow a camper from Mathews through the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and back by myself (never mind the setting up, although I can do it) in a vehicle that is seven years old.

One thing I'm not afraid to do by myself, though, is drive in a seven-year-old vehicle to Avon, North Carolina, with two teenagers.  No sirree, I am very much looking forward to it.

I put so much hope and expectation and anticipation into one week of the year, and it's finally here.

Click here for a 2011 post about one of the first times we all went to Avon, NC. We'd been before, but some years only one parent or one sister could come or some would only stay for part of the week, etc.

Click here for a 2008 post, where I tell of the very first time we ventured to the Outer Banks as a family.  It was in the off season, I recall, and CB Son was a toddler--not in 2008, but in the story.

Click here for a glance at Family Game Night on last year's vacation. My throat was raw from screaming.  And laughing.

Most of all, I hope your weekend and the days and nights that make up next week are fantastic.

I intend to make the most of every minute and second that I am away.
