Don't let the smile or the stick fool you; Grandma 4444 is not, and never was, a fan of camping.
[Aren't the curlers hilarious?! And how about that "camping" coat?]
She says she just didn't like "the rain, the mud, and the sloppy stuff" resulting from bad weather,
which she said seemed to be the norm when they camped,
though not, apparently, on this trip.
She only went along with it for the kids' sakes, of course, and I'm glad she did,
because Mr.4444 (the little cutie in the light-colored sweatshirt)
has very fond memories of camping as a kid.
He's shared those memories and led our own family in creating the same fun camping memories
for many years.
(As a matter of fact, we still use that tent today!)
Of course, we've discouraged some of the practices his dad taught him about camping...
(Not that it makes any difference. And I'll save you that particular photo.)
These memories made possible by Memory Hub,
which converted 447 old slides into digital images for our family
for the total price of about $139
(after giving me 100 slides free, in exchange for sharing my experience).
