My Uncle Dale and Aunt Teresa have a tradition they do every summer. They reserve a camp site up in the mountains by Aspen Grove and they have a picnic dinner up there and invite us Mills folks and then whoever wants to camp can camp and everyone else hangs out for a while after dinner and then go home. Usually none of the Mills camp, but this year Kristy and her family camped with them.
We went last night. I love this tradition. I don't think I was there last year, but I have gone every other year they have done it since they started doing it. I love it because I love being up in the mountains during the summer... and I love it because I love my family and extended family. I will take any chance I can get to hang out with my Aunts and Uncles and Cousins... etc...
It was just a few hours, but we all had a great time. Here are some pictures I snapped that evening.
Me with my Uncle Dale
and with my cousin Lauren (we have always been tight)
AND my family that was there. :)
