I love every opportunity to take a break and refresh.
This weekend I took off with my family for a quick camping trip. We stayed in tents and cabins at the family-friendly Yogi Bear Campgrounds. Yes it was at times more glamping (glamour camping) than anything but we had such a blast.
We spent a ton of time talking, laughing and actively out and about the campgrounds having fun.
Most of the area is a cell-phone dead zone so we spent little time engrossed in our timelines and more time together.
I went fishing for the first time. We kayaked and paddle-boated. We had a pork rib cook-off complete with taste testers. I was a judge and my vote lost. We had people playing cards and dominoes, basketball and mini-golfing. We even got to be in a parade.
It is always a nice change of pace when you can keep occupied without the aid of tv, electronic devices and netflix. We really had one of the best, most relaxing, care-free weekends we have had in a while.
I hope you make time to do the same in your life. We certainly aren’t getting any younger.
