Family Tradition!

We have a family tradition for Columbus Day. We all take off of work and go to Allegany State Park for the day. We have been doing this for 25 - 30 years. No one in our family wants to give it up! This year it is going to be a little different. For years Mom, Kim and I have said how cool it would be to rent a cabin for the weekend.

Well this year Chris and I decided to call and find out how much it would cost for us to rent a cabin. We were shocked. It would only cost $110.00 for all six of us for the weekend (3 Nights). Chris and I are going out today(Friday) and Mom, Kim, Tabatha and Yes Jerzie are coming out Saturday. We will all spend the night for two more nights and then have our family picnic on Monday.
We haven't heard from the rest of the family, so we aren't even sure if they will be coming or not. We are ready to have a great family getaway. Mom says she's on vacation. We will see how she feels after spending that much time with her KIDS!!! Click HERE to read about Columbus Day last year. I'm sure we will have lots of stories when we get back. Who do you think will fall in the creek first? Jerzie isn't included. I'm sure with 10 eyes on her she won't get too close!


We hope to get back to our regular blogging by the middle of the week. Thanks for understanding.
