Forced Family Fun :)

One of the best things about camping (ok, RVing) ;), besides enjoying God’s beautiful creation, visiting different landmarks, and making memories that will last a lifetime is that being in a small, enclosed space “forces” you to spend quality time with your family. We just got back from camping at Natural Bridge and had so much fun fishing, exploring Lexington, driving our rented golf cart, eating dinner outside, playing Uno, and sitting around the campfire.

For three days and nights we practically spent every minute together….then we came home and everybody went their separate ways.

It always amazes me how quickly we get back into our “routines” and spend much less time together after our trips are over. I think it’s so important for families to be intentional about planning quality time together or as we like to call it, “forced family fun” 🙂 !

Thank you Brendan and Ryan for putting up with us, even during your teen years!  We love you guys!!!

I am so grateful for these long weekends that we get to spend together and am looking forward to another one in less than two weeks!

That’s right boys (hee,hee)…more family fun is coming!!!

  1. Love the pictures! So glad you and Justin have “forced family fun.” I know the boys enjoy this time with y’all and you are making wonderful memories. They will do the same thing with their future families, too. You wait and see! 🙂

    Love you,
    Mom
