    Sand Springs Herbal Affair & Festival ~Sand Springs, Ok

    Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

    We went to the Sand Springs Herbal Affair and Festival this morning!

    We did not stay very long but it was a nice start to our Saturday.

    These soaps smelled so good!

    And so did the spices, and the herbs, and the food…

    I wanted it all pretty much.

    No clue who these people were that dressed up as a King and Queen but the kids got a kick out of it.

    Wore the wrong shoes…

    They all really liked the shuttle ride from the parking lot to the festival!

    It was very chilly which was funny since last week we went to the Herb Festival in Jenks and it was hot!

    Woolaroc Spring Traders Encampment

    Monday, April 17th, 2017

    I really enjoy going to Woolaroc during one of their events.

    We have gone to several over the years and the spring traders encampment did not disappoint.

    After a pretty, but long drive, we stopped at the little gas station right by the entrance to get out and stretch our legs.

    They have several types of animals that live on the ranch.

    I have seen the most in the winter.

    They appeared to be close to the road due to being fed in the winter.

    Other parts like the petting zoo are not usually open though in the winter but if you are wanting to see the heards that live on the ranch winter has been the best time for me so far.

    They had so many people camping there!

    Some are maybe just wanting to have the experience as opposed to wanting to teach you about it.

    I have found you can tell pretty quickly who wants to share history with you.

    They are enthusiastic and start talking right away and seem to love questions.

    Just be respectful of people that maybe just want to enjoy the experience themselves.

    They had a lot of people selling things which of course my kids loved.

    They all wanted everything pretty much…

    Little bit had already heard some musket fire and was covering her ears.

    I had my second oldest wear our gopro to get his point of view of the event.

    It was so much fun to look at later!

    I posted a short clip on youtube which I will share at the end of this post.

    Most of the footage I cannot share because we had a little friend with us that is in it.

    I love events that make you feel like you have stepped back in time.

    It makes history come alive!

    awoolarocDSC_3184 awoolarocDSC_3188

    This couple was great with the kids!

    So happy to answer questions and demonstrate!

    I am so thankful for people like them that help make history interesting.

    A big gust of wind came and blew a bunch of stuff away, including his hat.

    Which hit me right in the head.

    Ha!

    I am just really glad it was only a hat!

    Muskets are loud!

    Little bit tends to hate loud noises, unless she is making them of course.

    This little guy almost got stepped on by us!

    awoolarocDSC_3300

    I am surprised he did not hide right away from my noisy group.

    It was a great trip and totally worth the drive.

    What a beautiful place.

    Here is a clip of the video my son took.
