|This was usually only half of our|
group. You can imagine how
much of a party it was.
When I was little, we always used to go to Capitol Reef National Park at least once a year with a group of families that my family has known pretty much since I was born. We often went with about five families, but sometimes there would be as many as ten. My adorable-ness attracted a lot of people, I guess. So there would be around 25 of us, at a minimum. We always reserved this huge group site. I remember a lot of things about Capitol Reef, but what I remember the most is that it was always so much fun. A typical day would include one or more of the following (what I mean by that is all of the following):
- We hiked a lot. I enjoyed the hikes where we were able to frolic in the streams.
- Each family would take turns making dinner and breakfast for everyone, but everyone was on their own for lunch.
- Of the sloth type
- Soccer playing
- What can I say, I started at a young age.
- Horse watching
- There was a fenced pasture behind our site with about four horses. All the girls would admire them from a distance and try to feed them grass when they walked up to us.
- Maniac running
- I think this is self explanatory, but for those of you who had an awful childhood, it’s when you run around like an axe murderer.
- Softball playing
- Partying (seven year old style)
- Star gazing
- Campfire singing
- I know a song that gets on everybody’s nerves. SHUT UP I WILL KILL YOU IN YOUR SLEEP.
|Los caballos. (The horses. De nada).|
I have only the best memories of that place, and we went so often that when I think of my childhood, I think of Capitol Reef. We haven’t been back there for about four years now, but I think it would be so much fun to go back again with everybody. I'm not sure if everyone would come back in one piece; the limbo-ing and maniac running might be a little dangerous, but hey, I do know that it would be a blast, and that's all that matters. :)
