Backyard Camping

What could be more fun that camping in the backyard with Grandpa?

Last year, she remained local while he was at school. With him, she gets to experience the college life.

Although I didn't like the long 5-hour drive (I really don't like driving!) we had a great trip. Shandra and Tasha got to spend the entire drive down bonding as sisters, while Kim and I followed behind. Bubba t…
