    Newt Graham Lock and Dam ~Broken Arrow, OK

    Monday, February 13th, 2017

    We are studying the Erie Canal and since it had a lock, I wanted the boys to see one.

    We have two within a two hour drive of us so I chose the closest and we headed out there.

    It was a Friday afternoon and pretty dead.


    Steller planning I tell you.

    I was really hoping we would get there at a time the lock was being used but it was still cool to see.


    It was insteresting to see some of the barges that fit in the lock.

    They seem too big!

    We drove around to the other side to see the dam.

    I think I will call ahead next time and find out when they have barges coming through but it was still a fun trip 🙂

    If we lived closer, the Lock would be a fun place to eat lunch and watch for boats.

    They even have a picnic area right next to it.

    I went with totally impractical at our most recent walk at Ray Harral Nature Park.

    We were walking pretty slow so it was not too bad…

    Sometimes I choose cuteness over comfort.

    Sometimes, not often.

    I like comfort.




    In actuality I wanted the comfort of tights but thought it looked silly without boots.


    I did choose comfort!

    Just not for my feet…

    Have you ever worn something completely impractical?

    We got there early enough to help feed the squirrels and birds.
