Our 2021 summer came to an end this past weekend. We had lots of fun and made a lot of memories together as a family. As is our tradition, we asked the kids to put together some of their favorite summer memories, which are below.
Summer Memories - Paige
I enjoyed Camp pinnacle because I was able to try new things and make new friends. I also was able to have some great food! My friends made camp pinnacle so fun and exciting! I was also able to do things I wouldn't normally do like camping and mountain bikes!
Big Canoe Georgia
I loved Big canoe Georgia because I could hang out with the family and was able to do things I wouldn’t normally do! One of those things was tubing on a river on my own tube which was VERY FUN! I also loved hanging out at the house making s’mores and playing games like ping pong and darts!
Wyoming was much more fun than I thought it would be! I Loved making new friends and doing the hikes. Brooks lake lodge was also a very fun part of it because I could hang out with friends better and there were a lot of fun activities and our group was the only ones there! Some of the activities were archery, horseback riding, canoeing, fly fishing!
Surf camp was very fun. I was able to swim, make friends, and surf! I enjoyed surfing the outside break a lot more than the inside but it was still fun! Surf camp was the only camp I did this summer because summer was cut short because of covid but it was still fun!
Summer Memories - Connor
Camp pinnacle was an amazing two weeks of fun. I was finally able to get out of the house and
got the break I needed away from my family. I was more social and way more comfortable
making friends than I was a few years ago when I went. I felt like my cabin really bonded well
together and got along for the most part. Unlike two years ago I was able to meet and make a
lot of new friends outside of my cabin and was pretty well known outside of my cabin around the
camp. I did lots of cool and fun activities and the time went by fast when I was there.
The Georgia trip was right after Camp Pinnacle so I was really tired most of the trip and the beds
were not that comfortable, but besides that it was a blast. It was awesome seeing my extended
family for the first time in around a year or so. I went to a Braves game and got to see the
Braves score 20 points. At the end of the trip I was exhausted though because I was ready to
get home and sleep in my own bed. The house we stayed in was very nice and big, but it was very interesting staying in a house with 13 people in it.
Wyoming was a very cool place to visit mainly because I got to do so much when I was there. I
got to go White Water Rafting, mountain biking and a bunch of other activities. It took a while to
make friends, but ended up making some. My favorite part of the Wyoming trip was Brooks Lake
Lodge. You could do so much fun stuff there like Archery, horseback riding and fly fishing. We also did some little fun games like shuffle-boarding, darts and cornhole.
I did three weeks of surf camp and really improved on my surfing skills throughout the summer.
The waves were sometimes good and sometimes bad, but I was able to learn a lot of new tricks
to become a better surfer. I got extremely better at trying to get barreled and got a lot better at
going left and right on the wave. I learned a lot about different kinds of surfboards and different
kinds of waves. I met a lot of new friends each week and always was able to get some good rides every week.
