  • Route 66 Flywheelers ~Catoosa, OK

    November 12th, 2017

    This event has been going on since 1991!

    It was a lot bigger than I thought and the people were so friendly.

    Great event to bring kids.

    So many of the people loved kids!

    They had fun little things set up just for the kids that came.

    Such a beautiful smile.

    Some of the girls thought the gas engines smelled…

    Isn’t this fun!

    This guy had a bunch of hands-on things set up for kids!

    These guys were cutting cedar shingles and handing them out to people.

    The kids decided to make sleds.

    Glad we got to go!

    Maplewood State Park ~Pelican Rapids, MN

    October 31st, 2017

    Maplewood State Park

    I love this park so much that we ended up going three times while visiting family in MN!

    amnDSC_8743

    The first time we ended up just taking the twins and my niece.

    amnDSC_8771 amnDSC_8759 amnDSC_8773 amnDSC_8794 amnDSC_8822

    This is the woodland trail loop.

    It is under a mile but so pretty!

    amnDSC_8831 amnDSC_8835 amnDSC_8885

    I may have told my husband that I was not going home…

    amnDSC_8888 amnDSC_8890 amnDSC_8891

    Minnesota in the fall is hard to leave!

    amnDSC_8897 amnDSC_8904

    My adorable niece.

    amnDSC_8922 amnDSC_8919 amnDSC_9305

    For the second visit, we had all of our kids and came into the park from the south.

    amnDSC_9319

    This is a small portion of the Star Loop trail.

    amnDSC_9335 amnDSC_9346

    Next, we walked some of this beautiful trail near Maplewood Church.

    amnDSC_9384

    I had actually decided to try a family picture with this stunning backdrop but a birthday party started.

    I could not bring myself to get out my tripod and set everyone up for a family pic with an audience.

    amnDSC_9469 amnDSC_9472 amnDSC_9492

    We drove into in the park a bit more and ended up stopping to take this pic on a side road.

    amnDSC_9511 amnDSC_9530

    I love how it looks like everyone is cooperating and having fun but in real life, I had one mad at me and glaring for most of the pics…

    amnDSC_9535 amnDSC_9532

    amnDSC_1052

    On our 3rd visit, we had just the girls(the boys opted to stay and play with cousins).

    We hiked on the Ironwood Trail.

    amnDSC_1058 amnDSC_1062 amnDSC_1067

    I can’t get over how pretty the woods were.

    The girls decided to throw leaves at Nick on the hike back to the vehicle.

    amnDSC_1239 amnDSC_1248

    Love these.

    I am already missing fall in Minnesota!

    Shepherd’s Cross ~Claremore, OK

    October 27th, 2017

    Shepherd’s Cross has a really pretty farm with friendly people.

    ablancaDSC_1697

     

    We went to their pumpkin patch while we had a friend staying with us two weeks ago.

    ablancaDSC_1699

     

    ablancaDSC_1704

     

    This is a running farm so I do believe they have electric fences going, so be careful with little ones.

    ablancaDSC_1712

    My strategy when we have extra kids around?

    All the fun things possible.

    As little downtime as we can manage.

    HA

    ablancaDSC_1714

     

    So, of course, I did quick face paint before we went.

    ablancaDSC_1717

     

    My nine year old requested a 19th century English Gentlemen.

     

    ablancaDSC_1725

    They have a lot of free things to do, including games and a hay maze.

    This is what a worn out 3yr old looks like…

    She was done waiting for the others to finish coloring.

    Do you have a favorite pumpkin patch?
