    At the Lake with my 8yr old!

    After the USS Batfish, the boys and I met some friends at Tenkiller State Park to swim!

    The boys spent a lot of time trying to catch the fish.

    There were a lot of them!

    No matter how many legos they get they are always excited to get more…

    He picked a confetti cake icing.

    He also wanted cotton candy ice cream(really! Yuck!)

    I talked him out of it.

    It just sounded too disgusting to me!

    The rest of the evening were spent peacefully(for the most part) assembling lego sets.

    Lake Tenkiller ~Strayhorn Landing & Hickory Flats

    We first swam at Strayhorn Landing on Lake Tenkiller.

    It is a nice rocky swimming area.

    The boys had a lot of fun playing around and practicing their swimming.

    There is a nature trail between Strayhorn Landing and Tenkiller State Park.

    It is only a mile out and back (two miles total) but I was not really dressed appropriately.

    It just goes from a parking lot to the Overlook park.

    You can drive to the overlook park as well.

    snakes

    We stopped at the Nature Center in Tenkiller State Park and happened to be there when they were feeding the snakes.

    These rodents have zero survival skills…

    We also went to the Hickory Flats area in the state park, it was a no fee area for swimming.

    It had a really nice beach area but was really crowded so we went to a creek at goose neck bend to let the boys swim.

    This lake has really nice clear water and I can’t wait to take the boys during the week when it might be a little less crowded!
