    Snow!

    Thursday, December 28th, 2017

    We were so happy to get surprised with snow right before Christmas!!!

    asnowDSC_8492 asnowDSC_8493 asnowDSC_8495It has already melted but I am hoping we get more this winter!

    It was really wet snow so the kids were able to sled and throw snowballs(the painful kind, like rocks).

    I noticed that I got snow stilts after a little bit.

    HA!

    Little bit was sure she wanted to ride with her big brother on this part even though he thought they would run into one of those cedar trees.

    She got snow all over her face and hair…

    Mostly she just wanted to eat snow the whole time.

    asnowDSC_8605
    My kids ate plenty of dirt that day I am sure.

    The girls are not good at telling when they are getting a little bit cold so they wait too long to go inside or stop picking up snow.

    This usually results in tears when we do go inside.

    Glad we got to play in the snow in Oklahoma!

    Do you get snow where you live?

    Enjoy it or hate it?

    Shepherd’s Cross ~Claremore, OK

    Friday, October 27th, 2017

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

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

    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.

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

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

    She was done waiting for the others to finish coloring.

    Do you have a favorite pumpkin patch?

    Labor Day Vacation 2017 ~ Day 3~ Witchita Mountains Wildlife Refuge

    These cattle roam free on the refuge.

    It’s a lot of up…

    Beautiful place.

    amuseDSC_5216 amuseDSC_5219 amuseDSC_5225 amuseDSC_5230 amuseDSC_5245

    I like to hike in the morning and evening.

    Beautiful light and cooler temps.

    amuseDSC_5249

    As a photographer I think it is totally acceptable to ask that we only hike in the golden hour…

    Nick took the big kids to finish the hike to the top.

    Little bit and I hung out in this amazing spot with awesome views.

    amuseDSC_5288

    She thought pretending to eat me was giving me kisses.

    Ha

    The tiny specks on the top of the ridge are my kids.

    Rabbit!

    amuseDSC_5349

    Nick took this from the top!

    Headed down.

    After this hike we ate lunch at the camper and went into town to go the Museum of the Great Plains.

    Since this is already a long post, I will do a seperate post from the museum.

    After visiting the museum we had vehicle trouble!

    amuseDSC_5676

    We hung out in a car parts store parking lot for a while and had no clue if we would be able to drive home the next day.

    Let alone make it back to the campground.

    amuseDSC_5679

    We stopped at a nearby park to let kids run off energy and so Nick could research(our campsite did not have any cell service).

    amuseDSC_5685

    After none of our efforts to find a shop to repair it or a reasonable rental that fits a family of 7 we headed back towards our campsite.

    amuseDSC_5702

    It was an interesting twist to our vacation but gave me a glimpse into what full time travel might be like.

    If you break down, you don’t know anyone around to help fix it.

    amuseDSC_5718

    I was thankful for Nick offering to stop at a spot on the way back to the campsite.

    Our vehicle was running rough but we made it back(it was a holiday weekend so our options were limited).

    This place just shows off at sunset.

    I had no clue what the next day would hold but loved ending a somewhat stressful day on such a beautiful note.
