Emblematic Moment

The poem.

Reasons, they fall apart in the face of the truest desire.
But excuses, they pile up in the corners where dreams did aspire.

Thanks to the Queen City Mothers of Twins Club for a wonderful camping weekend along the banks of the Pemigewasset River. Thank you to the folks within the club that set this weekend in motion. Thank you for all of the planning, and thoughtful care to make this a pleasurable experience for the families and friends that made their way to the campground.

The weekend was a blast! There were all kinds of activities for the kids to participate in. Our group set up a projector so the kids had some movies to watch while enjoying warm summer weather under the stars.

All in all, the weekend was great. Saturday night and Sunday morning, the QCMOTC provided meals to the group. In talking with one member of the board, I was told that there were some 16 families with twins at the campground for the weekend. That’s a lot of twins! The club also subsidized the cost of the camping fees for the weekend. I know that our family had a great time and didn’t want to leave. It was a time to reconnect with old friends, renew acquaintances, and make new friends. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you to the Queen City Mothers of Twins Club, and also to  Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park.
