The Creation of Family Traditions: Summer Vacation.

100_1643There is nothing quite like summertime, especially in the South. My family has a wonderful tradition that has lasted back as far as I can remember, of taking a very special summer vacation each & every year, the first week of August.

We visit the most wonderful town, Burnsville, North Carolina, driving through many small mountain towns to get there and nestling in with the rest of our extended family for a week of hiking, waterfalls and wildflowers, rocking chair porches and mountain views.

It is one of the most wonderful & memorable places in the whole world. And times I wouldn't trade for anything. Just as a family summer vacation should be.

What summer vacation traditions do you & your family have?
