When I was a little girl my grandparents bought some land and built a cabin on it. We spent almost every weekend down there playing in the field, running through the woods, building dams in the creek and being immersed in nature. We loved the “Briar Patch” as it is called!
Yesterday we spent the day at the Briar Patch with my parents and my sister & brother-in-law and their kids. (If you remember this is the place Lucy got injured). We’re starting a whole new generation of weekends at the cabin.
The kids had a full day of archery, playing in the sand box, hiking and of course finding feathers, rocks and bones in the woods.
You can’t spend a day at the cabin without some roasting a few hot dogs over the fire (and sometimes marshmallows as well). Usually the day is finished with a batch of homemade ice cream, but yesterday we had cheesecake.
All-in-all it was a fun day. It’s always good to spend time with the family in a place that already has so many great family memories.
Did you have a place growing up where you could be immersed in nature?Filed under About Me, Miscellaneous | Comments (11)
