West Virginia...

Well, we went to West Virginia for a "weekend getaway". Met Mom, Dad and Sam in Summersville, at Mountain Lake Campground. We didn't get there till about 330am then had to set up camp. We were so tired...

Here's all of us before we went home in front of the new main building.

Here we go...starting our trip.

The next morning getting breakfast going...french toast and sausage on the camp stove..mm..

The girls playing with GrandDad

Helping Nana wash dishes Aunt Sam's job was starting the campfires

Oh, and what a treat! Santa Claus and Mrs Claus came for a visit!

In front of Summersville Dam and Summersville Lake. We want to get a boat next time.

What a beautiful view from Hawks Nest
This is Summersville Lake. It was created by a dam and flooded the town of Gad. They didn't want to call the dam the "Gad Dam"...ha ha, so they named it the next town over...Summersville...anyway..I think that's how the story goes. This was the road that went into the town I think... Emma had a lot of fun at the lake
Elizabeth and Daddy in the "pool" or "ocean". she kept calling it those...her first time in a lake :)
Me and my lil sisSam trying to get her dog Gus to swim

The next day we went back to the lake, and swam a lot more and dove off a little rock sticking out of the water. I didn't have my camera but mom had a waterproof one. If she gets digital pics I'll post them later when I get them. We took a bunch there.

2 of the Bailey Great Grandkids....there's another one in Michigan with one soon to be born :) a total of 4 so far...

Here's me and my cousins in I believe it was 1988 (i was in third grade when i had that haircut) :) so 20 years earlier..wow...and look, we're wearing our bathing suits too!

The girls were running in the grass on the hill next to our site and having a blast...Here's our site, minus the awning for the picnic table. the wind took it and we didn't feel like setting it up again since we were leaving in the morning.
