Family Time



Days remembered as a child came back this weekend as we met at Rock Creek Camp located at Possum Kingdom Lake near Graham, Texas. Wildfires were all around us but we still enjoyed visiting with each other.

In the above picture is my my dad's brothers and sister....we also remembered the 2 brothers that are no longer with us as well as their Mom and Dad.





We had such good times as kids going to visit Granny and all the Aunts, Uncles, and many cousins that would also come. This weekend we had the joy of stepping back in time and remembering those fond childhood memories.




I'm hoping that the youngest generations are making some fond memories that one day will have them stepping back into time and remembering the fun times they shared with their cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents.






Dad visiting with his younger brother Bill, sister in law Sandy and one and only sister Dot.

Sloan and Rylan....buddies!



Maggie, Megan, and Mandy helped me keep up with Sloan.



The house that 14 of us stayed in....it was like a good ole' fashion slumber party!

Looking over pictures and memories from the past.

Mom and Dad with all of us girls and families....missing just five. Hopefully next year we can all make it!

Well I enjoyed visiting with everyone and I know in some ways it will seem like forever before next April is here once again. I'm so glad we do these reunions there is nothing quite like FAMILY!!!!

Happy Trails.....Ginger

I had read about those fires and I remembered that you had went there last year. I kept thinking about it I had no idea that you were going this year. I am glad that the smoke wasn't too bad and you still got to enjoy your extended family.
You are so blessed.

Hi,

I'm trying to find out if my Grandparents place is ok. They kive at the end of Robinson Rd, off of the road to Rock Creek Camp, (if you take the road by the honkey tonk - the honeydew or something like that.) I can't get in touch with anyone, and the house is empty right now. If you get a chance could you email me a short note? I would so appreciate your help!

BTW, I snooped around your blog a little and the pics are breathtaking. I enjoyed your writing immensely, although it made me long for family that never gathers at the lake anymore.
