Summer Vacation and Family Reunion 2012

Yesterday my immediate family and I returned from a Beauregard family reunion in the mountains of Blue Ridge, Georgia.  We spent a week in a rental cabin/house right by the river and enjoyed the company of each other amid certain fun activities and pastimes.  I wanted to chronicle the trip on my blog, since it has been so long since I have done anything here!  Plus I enjoyed my time so much that I wanted a permanent way to record it.  Since I don't keep a diary or journal, my blog is the best medium for that.

I can imagine what some of my long-term readers must be saying, and yes, I have tried this before, and it failed miserably.  The last time I tried to chronicle a vacation, I ended up fizzling out mid-way and didn't finish posting.  I can't promise that this won't happen again, but I am a year older and more determined than ever to finish it this time!

What I intend to do over the next week or so, time permitting, is write a blog post for every day that we were gone.  There was one day (Thursday) that might necessitate two posts due to the volume of activity and pictures, but otherwise one post per day of vacation.  I intend to start this tomorrow and post a new day's story every couple of days after that.  Hopefully you all can get a sense of what I did and maybe even feel some of the same emotions that I felt as I was doing what we did.

Thanks for sticking around, even during the bare times of the last eleven months since I last posted!  Hopefully I won't disappoint you and you will enjoy what I have to share.

You are too ambitious, just pick out one day and write one paragraph.
