Kathy Receives Her Rug Rat Camping Scrapbook

2011 marked the last annual Rug Rat Camping.  Started as early as 1987 by David, Katie and Matt, the annual Memorial Day Camping expanded in 1993 to include Kathy, and then, within a year or two after that, the Millers (Tom, Eileen, T.O. and Jen).  Around 2001, the camping trip was officially renamed, "Rug Rat Camping" in honor of Vicki, Mike and Nick, who began their annual trip with us.  Nick was only 4 years old - hence the "rug rat" name.  For 10 years, the Millers, Vicki, Mike, Nick, Kathy and David have made the annual trek to WT Family Campground in the Poconos.  This year was our last.  In honor of the occasion, Jen and Eileen made a scrapbook for Kathy and presented it to her.  This is the video of the presentation, on Sunday, May 29, 2011.
