About halfway there I realized I had forgotten my camera!! I pouted about it for a while, seeing all these great shots go by and me with no way to take them. After a day, I realized maybe there was a reason I had forgotten it- perhaps I was supposed to fully immerse myself in this trip. When I have my camera and I am taking photos, I don't always experience all that is going on, I am in my own world, and really seeing things through the lens, which creates a barrier between me and the my surroundings. Without my camera I spent hours playing with my little second cousins and nephew Brayden, which I might not have done otherwise. I got to know them better, and I will always treasure that, memories I will always have. The pictures I have included were taken in previous years.
We were only able to stay a short time this year, but we did a lot in that time. Most of my favorites and a few new things too!! I won't bore you with paragraphs and paragraphs but instead will share them this way.

I am looking forward to next year, and more memories. I will probably bring my camera, but I will make sure that my experiences are not all through the viewfinder.
