Allegany State Park!

We got home from our 4 day camping trip last night at about 5:00. We had really good weather, although at night you didn't want to get too far away from the camp fire. We had frost one night.

It is a good time away from everything and to spend time together as a family. There were 7 of us camping in two cabins. My Mom, my brother, Sister in law, our two nieces, Chris and I go every year.

We can't believe how fast the days go when you are outside enjoying nature and the beautiful weather.

We took lots of walks and enjoyed all of the fall colors. This is our favorite time of the year.

We took a lot more pictures and will be sharing soon. Chris and I are packing to head to the Adirondacks first thing tomorrow morning. We are really looking forward to our trip.

The Countdown Begins!

For the past 4 years, our family has been renting a cabin (or two) at Allegany State Park on Columbus Day weekend. We have been going to Allegany on Columbus Day for around 30 years, maybe even longer. We have a big picnic and everyone brings a dish to pass. We spend the day eating, playing and eating some more. It seems that a lot of our family has stopped coming due to the fact that most of them have moved out of town. When we were younger, Mom always said how nice it would be to rent a cabin for the weekend, so 4 years ago we finally did. There have been a few years that we have had snow on picnic day. We are sure hoping that we have nice weather this year.
