Grandma Doty turns 80 // A Brown Family Camping EXTRAVAGANZA

Next month, Travis’s sweet grandma turns 80! To celebrate, she decided some camping was in order (as it always is when one turns 80). It was ridiculously hot and humid, but as you’ll see I think everyone had a wonderful time.

It was sad, but not a single person there was excited to see us. NOT A ONE.storyboard001.jpg

Especially not this guy (“BRING ME MY TEETHING RING,” he bellowed). storyboard002.jpg

He was very pleased. storyboard004.jpg

Everyone had a really good time, but then this muddy swamp monster started terrorizing the camp and it really just ruined everything. storyboard013.jpg

Serious chats with Uncle Travis. At one point she told her parents sadly, “I don’t want Uncle Travis and Aunt Sarah to get old.” storyboard016.jpg
