    Keystone State Park Mountain Bike & Hiking Trail

    Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

    The Keystone State Park Mountain Bike & Hiking Trail is a mouthful…and it is located between the Keystone State Park and the Keystone Dam on 161 in NE Oklahoma.

    It is a beautiful somewhat secluded feeling Trail with different levels of difficulty.

    Green Trail- Novice

    Blue Trail-Intermediate

    Red Trail- Advanced

    Black Trail- Expert

    Although the Park office located in Keystone State Park does have a trail map I would suggest printing off a color version (here) before going since theirs is black and white and you cannot see the colors of the trails.

    The trail difficulty seems to be more for bikes then hikers so if you plan on hiking the trail you will find the “expert” to not be as difficult to hike as most trails with that difficulty rating.

    The trails are pretty rough on your feet as there are a lot of rock’s so wear sturdy footwear.

    My youngest got a ride this time since he was “helping” his Dad train for a harder hike he and I are going on in the summer.

    The picture on the right gives you an idea of what the trail looks like. Lots of rocks.

    It was my favorite hiking weather, cloudy and misty. It made everything damp and beautiful!

    I am so glad we went!

    Everything was blooming and beautiful.

    I love it when there is just a hint of spring everywhere.

     

    My opportunity to think pink

    Monday, March 28th, 2011

    My friend Stephanie over at A Creative Fox decided to give me a little time to think pink.

    Her husband planned a weekend BY THEMSELVES (unheard of for parents of small children) and she let me watch her two precious little girls!

    My boys love them and once they came to our house, thought they should stay forever.

    I tried to explain that we did need to give them back.

    My oldest is still not sure why.

    Thank you Stephanie for letting me peek into the world of pink.

    Some of these pics are from the week before when I watched them for a few hours.

    I like to think of it as a warm up for the next weekend…

    Is there anything better then a friend pushing you on a swing?

    Yep, capturing it on the camera!

    At the end of the weekend I was convinced I could not handle four kids right now.

    I forgot to eat and did not care.

    Four meals to prepare.

    Four bedtimes.

    Four naptimes.

    Four coats to be put on and four shoes (eight shoes! I did not let them all run around with one shoe on!).

    Then this one decided to pull out all the stops on the last day…

    And just like that, I want a little girl again.

    I think my husband might have whiplash from how often I change my mind…
