    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

    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.

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

    Do you have a favorite pumpkin patch?

    These cattle roam free on the refuge.

    Elk!

    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.

    She thought pretending to eat me was giving me kisses.

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

    Rabbit!

    Nick took this from the top!

    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.

    Little Bit and I

    Friday, July 21st, 2017

    Sometimes Little Bit’s energy really needs wide open spaces after being cooped up in the house during school hours.

    aserDSC_2192

    I just need the quiet being out of the house brings.
