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

Of course, we ended the day by the fire

P1070793bWe definitely had a great time at Sam Baker.

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

Last vacation to see Sam

Ok. Sam is not really a person I know (although my mom said a biillion times that this is her favorite place in the world)

Sam is actually Sam A Baker State Park. It is about a two hour car ride from St Louis, and is probably the closest I get to camping each year haha

We started the day by following this…. All our bikes ready to go!

My partners for the ride

After unpacking (in record time) we headed out for a bike ride!

P1070771b

It felt great to move our legs! And I needed it because I had to pull over 100lbs behind me!!!

(Andrew. you must learn to ride your bike. -love mom)

We also went down to the river, which seemed alittle high but nothing crazy with all the flooding lately

P1070776b

The boys were taking all kinds of pictures together

P1070782b

Before we knew it, it was time for dinner and a bonfire!

P1070801b

More to  come on Monday!

-We stay in a cabin at night, but rough it during the day haha

Another quickie

Andrew and I were out of town yet again (not that I’m complaining AT ALL)

We headed out of town for the past three days. Another quickie vacation

I swear I will have more on this tomorrow, but it is time for bed. I work tomorrow, and I need to get some sleep so I can start the weekend right!

Question for you:
What are you doing this week?

Where is your favorite place to go for a long weekend? (or quickie vacation?)
