This trip was exactly what we needed.
Except WAY.TOO.SHORT. But it could've been 6 months long and still would've been too short, really.
There's so much to tell. The campground was really pretty. We stayed in a cabin, which was TOTALLY roughing it. There was only a MINI-FRIDGE and a rinky-dink microwave for crying out loud! And a wall unit A/C. Oh, the humanity!

Seriously, it was great. I have no problem tent camping, but not in August in Florida. So the cabin was perfect, and we spent very little time in it.
We were busy....
- Riding Jay's 4-wheeler in the woods
- Swimming in the pool
- Swimming in the lake
- Getting face-painted
- Chilling with Yogi Bear
- Going on Hay Rides
- Singing Karaoke
- Making S'mores
Elayna and Bee play well together, and the two of them spent a lot of time in the pool.
|I do have toes. I promise.|
|Hula Hoop contest! Bee won; Elayna won Musical Chairs.|
|It's YOGI!!! Hide your picnic baskets!|
Jay enjoys metal detecting in the lake, so he spent a few hours doing that.
|you would not believe the valuable jewelry he finds. |
friends, do not wear gold & diamonds to the beach/lake/river!!
|holding my baby!!|
|Shelbie & Jay love picking on me, |
which is what they were doing in THIS pic!
Probably my second favorite was riding the 4 wheeler out in the woods. I love being out in the middle of nowhere, away from all the stress of life.
Jay said the guitar guy & I should take our show on the road.
I said, if I ever sound like some of the people who sang after me, please drag me off of the stage and beat me with the microphone stand.
I'm not Jennifer Nettles (oh, how I wish I had her voice!) but I'm just saying....some people should not be allowed near a microphone. Ever.
Much to our surprise, it didn't rain on us at all. It's been an extremely rainy summer in Florida, so three days without rain were a wonderful treat!
Anyway...it was a lovely getaway, and a good time was had by all.
