Clarkco State Park

Every year for the past 27 years, my family has gone to Clarcko State Park for a family reunion. 
My dad's mother, Grandmommy, and her 3 siblings started spending a week together with their children when they were younger. It has continued my dad's generation and their children. We LOVE Clarkco.

The lake has changed a bit over the year and the swimming hole isn't what it used to be when I was little but it is still a beautiful place spent with some of my favorite people.

 We always hike, eat some of the most delicious food, play board and card games in the main cabin and a usually end up laughing until we cry, multiple times. 

The majority of the family is there Wednesday through Saturday/Sunday but because of work, JP and I came down Friday evening after work. Here are some pictures from our weekend. 
(Baby Ann Rainey will be joining us next year. She will be the first great-grand of the Beckman family!)

 Johnathan and I hiked the entire length around the lake. The weather was a little muggy and humid but, honestly, the weather was beautiful. Especially cooler for this time of year!

Last night, God painted some of the most beautiful artwork for us with His sunset. No filter necessary for these. So peaceful, so perfect!

It was a great, perfect weekend. Hopefully in the next few years, we will me able to make it for the entire week. I enjoyed introducing JP to more of my extended family and introducing him to one of my favorite places growing up. I am already looking forward to next year!
