Family Trip to Georgia

Poet's Notes

This was a picture from a family trip we took 11 years ago to Georgia. This was the lake behind the cabin we stayed in.

I have a lot of memories
That I will keep with me
From this family trip
To a Georgia State Park

It was the first family trip
That I ever been on
With my 3 year old niece
Which made it extra fun for me

We went around the lake
On this most beautiful trail
And as we walked it
We picked up leaves of yellow
Orangish yellow, and bright red

We also went to Cloudland Canyon
It was a most beautiful sight
From the overlook alone
You could see 2 gorgeous, cascading waterfalls
Not to mention you could see for miles

We also went to Ruby Falls in Tennessee
it was the first time
My 3 year old niece had ever been
At first I thought she would not like being in a cavern
But by the time we headed back up she was saying can we go again

That night when we got back
We started a fire in the fireplace
And started roasting marshmellows to make S'mores
The funny thing is my niece didn't like the S'mores
Which was a great big shocker to us

What would a trip be
Without a little cookout
The night before we leave
Oh the hamburgers and hotdogs
They tasted mighty good

This family trip to Georgia
Was full of a lot of memories
And I was happy most of all
To spend it with my family

If you go again: can I come? Sounds great to me.
