Sam A Baker 2012


It's a family tradition-a weekend at Sam A Baker State Park. It is one of my most "look forward to" weekends of the year. It might actually be my favorite one of the year! It's a weekend with pretty much NO technology (I remember calling my high school bf at a payphone from Sam A. because there was NO service...ha!) Now we take full advantage of the no service thing. We go with my mom's side of the family. Just her 2 brothers, their families and my g-pa and his wife. We stay in cabins with everything we need-we aren't "tenting it." Ha! We have had the same foods for as long as I can remember and the weekend usually plays out the same. We sit around a campfire, we throw the football, make s'mores, cook egg sandwiches over the fire for breakfast, and sit some more! We always go in late fall (Sept-Oct.) so the leaves are breathtaking.
Since Mark and I got married we added the pumpkin carving tradition into Sam A Baker since it's always the appropriate time. ;) My mom even bakes the seeds-it's so fun to watch everyone work!
It's always an interesting time trying to get a picture of all of us...gotta love the self timers! ;)
 And just for fun...to document my sister being 37 weeks pregnant...
I also always love to compare past years...
*LOVE*
One of my daily prayers is for Mark and I to create the DESIRE in our children to create,uphold, and value family traditions-not only with our immediate "4-some" but with extended family as well! This weekend is just a reminder of how good we really have it!
