Annual Family Camping

**Disclaimer, this post is not about art or culture or anything highbrow, this is all about a good lowbrow weekend with no showers or schedules.**

So about a decade or so back my family started going on an annual camping trip to Fisheating Creek off of US-27 and it has become one of my most cherished weekends of Fall. What started off with just the 4 of us has morphed into a 4-5 families weekend of good stick-to-your-gut food (no vegans allowed!), lots of laughs, long walks in the woods, and fireside chats. Heck my husband even asked my dad to marry me on a camping trip, that some powerful stuff!

This past weekend was our 2016 Fisheating Camping Trip and I am so thankful that we have kept up this tradition even as things get busier. This past year Will and I had to join an evening late because he was being recognized at UCF’s 30 Under 30 but come hell or high-water we were going camping this weekend!

Now that we are packing our bags to fly out to NYC/Cape Cod for Thanksgiving break I am reminded that we all need to make sure we spend time with family beyond the obligatory holidays and special events. The quote below made me laugh, is it true?

“Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.”
