Tam sure knows how to put on a great retreat!!!! The Wilderness Development Camp in Lawson is PERFECT for a Scrapbooking retreat!!!!!! Each Scrapbooker received their very own 6ft table. . .and we had the entire basement of our lodge to Scrapbook in!!!! Upstairs there were 3 to a bedroom and each room had its very own bathroom. There was a huge kitchen family room area where Tam cooked us fabulous meals!!!! It is the best. . .we scrap, scrap, scrap away and then someone tells us it is time to eat. We saunter upstairs and sit down to a wonderful meal. Then she also cleans up after us!!! Who can beat that??????
Brady and Eli had their very first soccer games on Saturday morning, so of course we couldn't miss that. . .I am not on my computer, but I will post pictures later!!!! But, that did interrupt some of our scrapbooking time, so I didn't get as many things done as I would have liked. BUt it was such a nice day on Saturday. . . .it was nice to get out and enjoy it a bit. We also took a walk around the camp. We had the perfect guide. . .Jen Butler. . .her parent's run the camp and she grew up there. It is a beautiful camp and it was such a nice day!
I look forward to this retreat every year. . OK, so this is only the 2nd year for this particular retreat, but I do attend Tam's retreats every year!!!! Anyway, the scrapping space is SO Nice. . .the lighting is FANTASTIC. . .the food is WONDERFUL and even better that someone else prepares it for us and cleans up after us!!!! The Lodge is very nice. . .though the beds are only a twin and are a bit hard. . .I recommend buying one of those cheap foam mattress pads. . .it really helped out a TON and I slept like a baby on Saturday night!!!!
I am always sad for the retreat to end. . .I had such a great time Scrapping with my friends. . .new and old.. . .we laughed and shared ideas. . . now back to the real world. . .fixing my own meals and cleaning up after myself and the rest of my family! It sure is nice to escape for a short while and let someone else do all the work!!! Thank you so much Tam! I am already counting the days until the next one!!!!!!
