Another day at the cabin

After a great first day at the cabins, I was up bright and early for another day at Sam Baker. I started my day with a run! (more on that later)

We started the day with eggs, bacon, and cherries- YUM


Next up, another bike ride where we found other early risers

Question for you:

Are you a morning or an evening person?

-I definitely feel more alert at night, but my body seems to think 6:30 is always a good time to get up haha

Beach Bum

I swear I don’t have many more posts about the lovely beach, and how much I miss it haha

Besides getting sick with a 102.8 degree fever, and having to start antibiotics, it was a great trip. Although St Louis’ weather is in the 70s and really nice!

The one thing I will change would be to bring my bike. I didn’t get much exercise, and I was definitely feeling it when I got home. Although, my body probably appreciated the rest (just not the million M&Ms)

Question for you:

What is one thing or person you miss right now?

-Andrew is at the lake with his dad. He has been gone for 2 days. I think I missed him the night he left haha. Luckily, he will be back on Sunday! HIS BIRTHDAY!

First stop Mississippi

My family and I headed to Fort Morgan Alabama again this year, and I was BEYOND ready for this trip. I needed out of St. Louis. Bad.

The trip started on Friday after Andrew got out of school. His last day of second grade [insert tears]

From 4pm to 10:30 we were on the road. We finally crashed at a family member’s house of my sister in law

The farm was absolutely beautiful



Andrew and I had a pretty creepy room, im not gonna lie…. haha. with my morning coffee

And in the morning we went fishing



The boys walking to the pond


We didn’t catch much except sea weed. But Andrew caught the biggest thing…himself haha


We finally headed back and got on the road for the beach! But first we stopped by Ole Country Bakery


There are fresh breads, pastries, and sandwiches made by the  Mennonite workers. We grabbed sandwiches on the way. If you are EVER in Brooksville MS you MUST stop and grab donuts, sandwiches, and a pie to go or to eat in!!!


best. sandwich. ever.

More adventures to come tomorrow!!

Question for you:

Have you ever been to Mississippi?
When you travel, do you like to drive in one day, or split it into two?
