Sam A Baker Weekend 2013 - Eveyone loves an amazing family tradition! ( pt 1 )


*be ready for picture overload ;)

Last weekend was spent with family enjoying a campfire. I told Mark, as each year passes I look more forward to this weekend each year...I don't know if it's because I am getting older and enjoy the true meaning of relaxation or if I understand the value of family better each passing year. I think a bit of both?!?!? You can read about previous Sam A Baker weekends here: 2012 - 2011 - 2010

Since Mark doesn't work on Fridays we were able to get a head start and head out of town. Wyatt had a small "in-house" field trip Friday morning so as soon as that was over we headed out. The kids slept most of the way, which was all part of the glorious plan. Ha! As soon as we got there we unload our stuff and headed to the play ground! We took the wagon for the kids to ride in throughout the weekend. It was perfect! Yes, they were eating marshmallows...and getting incredibly sticky. It was an "anything goes" weekend-kind of like a mini vacation! ;)


The play ground was such a fun area. There was an area for smaller children and one that had bigger slides as well. Zetta arrived not much after us and played on the play ground with us. Sloane and Wyatt love their "baby Zetta."



Since it's been getting dark earlier we played for just a little bit before walking (some of us riding ;) back to our cabin. There was a campfire waiting for us!


 We spent time by the fire. We ate, talked, played, ate, then all called it a night and headed inside our cabins to sleep. In the a.m. we always eat egg, bacon, cheese sandwiches made by campfire...ya amazing! I am not even a big breakfast sandwich eater but once a year...I have to have one! ;) It wouldn't be Sam A Baker without them.

My mom and her brothers-getting their "cook" on! Ha!

As Saturday progressed we made another trip to the play ground, snacked, rode bikes, made huge piles of leaves, ate good food, took naps, ate again, took long walks...
