This year the James family, which is my mom's side of family, planned a group camping trip to Bay View State Park located near Padilla Bay. We couldn't have picked a better weekend. The sun was out all weekend without a cloud in the sky and the breeze from the water kept us cool. Even though not everyone from the James family could come, there was a bunch of us there. Most of the group arrived on Friday and went home on Sunday afternoon. Mom and Dad brought the little pop-up camper they bought back in 1986. I still can't believe a family of six spent so many wonderful summers in what seems like such a tiny little camper now that I'm older. Jaisha and Steve, and little Kaleb too, came in their trailer. Aunt Karen, Leann (cousin), and her boyfriend, Sean arrived with tents, ready for some camp fires. Jackie and Chris shared a tent site with Joel, Julie and I. Tonna (cousin) and her daughters Riley and Sidney, along with Moriah (cousin) and her daughter Maddie, arrive on Saturday for a fun filled two days of tenting.
