also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

To give a small overview, we've had a second home up north for quite a few years now, that we share use with the rest of the family, and try to visit when we can. In the summer, we normally will have a big gathering up north with family and close friends. Last year cut it down a bit, only immediate family (with COVID), but this year we had our normal large get-together.
And as in my experience with any extended vacation, there has always been the need for at least a few spankings during our trip in the summer. And this year was no exception. There were actually a total of 7 spankings during the 6 day trip, three of them administered by myself.
Cherie had brought up in her post about sometimes the need of spanking at a rest stop during the drive up (or back home). With the drive being over 5 hours for our home, those rest stop spankings have happened more than once over the years, as well. I didn't have to administer any this year (or last year), but my daughter Jennifer needed to spank both of her children (daughter-almost 9 and 3 yr old son) at a rest stop for fighting on the way up.
During the first day, my youngest sister (Stacey) needed to spank a boy (11) she sits for, and has become much like another son to her, when he continued to argue and whine with her about wanting to play his Switch, instead of going outside with us on a walk. Even though he has always insisted he loves coming up here to play outside.
One of the other spankings was for a boy I babysit for, his mother gave him a spanking not wanting to go to bed, even though it was nearing 11:30pm. She gave him several chances to stop and get ready for bed but finally took him inside into one of the bedrooms and it was quite obvious what was happening next. One of the spankings I needed to administer was for the same reason, when Andy (whom is like a son and I've babysat for years) also would not go to bed. Boys and bedtime just don't agree! I have found it can be a problem even in their mid-teens.
The final two spankings were last Saturday, and were probably the worst ones due to safety reasons as both my granddaughter (same one whom was spanked on the way up) and a girl I sit for (9 yrs old) were caught by myself in the the lake right off our home. The beach is right near the house, so the kids play often on the beach and love to swim in the lake, but a hard fast rule is only being able to go in with an adult's permission, and if they are young enough, with supervision.
These girls broke both rules, as well as it being extremely dangerous, so the spankings I gave were certainly more serious than normal. I had them come out of the water, escorting them up to our back patio (swatting them hard the whole way) and gave them each very sound and thorough spankings on their bare, wet bottoms and thighs with my hand and hairbrush. I didn't want there to be any question in their mind on doing that again any time soon (or hopefully ever).
That said, we all had a great time and had wonderful weather. Not a drop any of the days and all were warm to hot and sunny. Even the kids that were spanked said they still had a great time on the vacation, sore bottoms withstanding.
