Mimi Camp continues with Rosenquist family

Long-time Pecan resident and host of “Mimi Camp” Yvonne Rosenquist writes, “Here we are again! Mimi Camp 2015!”

The camp festivities encompassed Memorial Day weekend, and the attendees included 13 grandchildren traveling to Granbury from six states.

Mimi Camp was born in 2000 when the “campers” were all between the ages of 6 and 12; now the age span runs 21 to 35, and three spouses and a 2-year-old great-grandchild, who Yvonne said “entertains us all.”

Yvonne cites activities included eating at local establishments in our community, devotionals on the porch, boating on the now very full Brazos River, games, church on Sunday, and most of all, visiting and catching up on one another’s lives, which always brings the grandchildren closer to their Mimi.
