As a child I spent many hours playing down there with my cousins, then as a teenager taking long walks with my family. Vince and I even cut our very first Christmas tree in those woods. They have a very special place in my heart.
We went with my parents for a picnic and a little fishing and just had so much fun simply hanging out there. The weather was perfect and I loved just looking around at the familiar sights that I hadn't seen in nearly 13 years. I hadn't been there since my grandpa died and I could almost see him out there just tinkering around.
The kids had a wonderful time, exploring and even catching a couple of fish! That day will be tucked away in my memory as a treasure-filled family moment.
I think we'll go back again soon!
