    Maramec Spring Park ~St. James, MO

    Monday, May 22nd, 2017

    This is a beautiful park in Missouri!

    Maramec Spring Park is not too far outside of St. Louis and a short distance away from Interstate 40.

    They have these pools filled with trout!

    There were so many, it seemed unreal.

    They have beautiful paths for you to walk along the river.

    They have several feeding stations set up also.

    Someone was super nice and gave us some quarters they did not need, so we could feed the fish.

    My kids were just searching the ground for fish food people had dropped since we did not bring any quarters.

    They had a nice museum to go to.

    There was another also but I found we all did better outdoors after being in a vehicle for hours…


    The kids really liked this watershed display.

    It really rained.

    This is a great spot to stop for us on trips to Indiana.

    Can’t wait to go there again!

    Tulsa Waterworks & A Serendipitous Educational Moment

    Wednesday, May 10th, 2017


    A friend of mine was watching one of my girls for me so I had only 4 kids!

    I wanted to go for a walk and was looking around for a good place when we found a pretty big city waterworks and reservoir.



    This was perfect!

    We had just watched the Magic School Bus waterworks show on the way their!

    It was great to talk about what we had just watched while walking on the walking path around the reservoir.

    The cleaning process was a lot more interesting after seeing a dead fish in the water people drink…

    Thanks dead fish for an easy teachable moment.

    Pretty sure they will remember this one.

     It would be so much fun to tour the actual waterworks!

    It was right next to us and so impressive looking!

    Can’t believe she is almost 3. I want to remember that smile, her love of dancing, that Roger’s & Hammerstein’s Cinderella is one of her favorite movies and she sings the songs, and she doesn’t like meat 😉

    Goodnight almost 3yr old.
