Saturday Snapshot 7/18

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads. 

We took a break from our days at hospice this week to spend 2 nights camping with good friends nearby at Sugar Creek Glen Campground in Dansville, NY. This is a trip we'd planned long before and it turned out to be a much-needed respite. This is where we camped when I was a kid, so our visit was filled of memories of my Dad. And we camped with my good friend, Amy, who I met at Sugar Creek about 35 years ago - we spent our teen weekends there together! For our kids, it was a return to a favorite spot they hadn't visited in 14 years. Here's just a peek at what makes the Glen so special:

One of several pools in the Glen - perfect for jumping into!

The "Big Falls"

We walked past (and through) cascading falls

And the same kids 14 years ago!

Just looking at these photos makes me want to go back! Hope you are enjoying a nice weekend!


  1. What fun memories. I am awful sorry about your dad. I hope that the days that come help you find time to reflect on all the love and the happy memories together. Blessings.

  2. Love those then and now photos! It's good to recapture the fun memories.

  3. Just checking in. How are you doing? I've been reading Harper Lee's new book. Check out my review if want some diversion.Go Set a Watchman at HeadFullofBooks
