    OKC Outdoors

    Friday, July 14th, 2017

    Arcadia Conservation Education Area

    They are racing for the shade.

    It was a little bit hot.

    The education center was closed when we went.

    I am not sure if it is only used for school trips and stuff?

    Martin Park Nature Center

    We found out that the nature center was closed for construction after we got there.

    So you will want to check the status of that before you go.

    This place had really nice easy walks but we ran into seed ticks while there. I am wondering if it was from the bridge or tower.

    We stayed in the middle of the path and usually can avoid them if we don’t brush up against grass.

    Thankfully a baby wipe got a lot of them off.

    Acadia Lake State Parks

    aokcDSC_1715

    We actually parked here so Little Bit could take a nap!

    It was really hot that day but by parking in the shade right next to the lake, it was not bad at all.

    This trail does not seem to get much use.

    The farther we went the smaller the trail so we turned around.

    I try not to take trails that are too narrow in the summer here.

    Sure enough we got ticks from this one as well.

    Arcadia Lake is really pretty though and has lots of camping options.

    Might need to make an rv trip here someday.

    OKC Zoo ~Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

    Thursday, July 13th, 2017

    My husband needed to go to OKC for work for three days so we decided to join him for a few of them.

    We had not been to the OKC Zoo in a while so we stopped there first after dropping him off.

    azooDSC_1383

    Those water bottles were in their mouths 90% of the time…

    azooDSC_1389 azooDSC_1398 azooDSC_1403

    We basically go to the zoo to sit on animal statues.

    Do they have an animal statue zoo?

    That would probably be a big hit.

    The zookeeper tried but could not get any birds to go on “M”.

    azooDSC_1454 azooDSC_1463 azooDSC_1471 azooDSC_1476 azooDSC_1479

    Lots of little fingers were pecked.

    Ha

    It was a pretty hot day(in the 90’s) but the kids drank a lot of water and they had misting stations everywhere.

    azooDSC_1489 azooDSC_1507

    The twins favorite thing to do at zoo’s is feed fish.

    Thankfully this zoo had fish feeders like the Tulsa zoo.

    azooDSC_1516 azooDSC_1519 azooDSC_1520 azooDSC_1524

    I feel like the Giant Anteater should be something in a star wars movie.

    So odd looking.

    azooDSC_1528

    The misting station was making her hair look white since the little droplets were just sitting on top of her hair.

    azooDSC_1539

    Snakes!

    azooDSC_1540 azooDSC_1543 azooDSC_1544 azooDSC_1553 azooDSC_1555 azooDSC_1566

    I really like their Oklahoma exhibits.

    It helps the kids know what animals we have in our state.

    azooDSC_1570 azooDSC_1576

    The girls liked the prairie dogs.

    This boy likes to read every sign.

    He reminds me of the robot in Short Circuit.

    “Need input”

    azooDSC_1586 azooDSC_1589 azooDSC_1593

    This bear was sprawled out on the glass, to keep cool I would assume.

    azooDSC_1596 azooDSC_1608

    I was reminded why I don’t go often alone with five kids but we survived!

    That’s the important thing.

    Sand Springs Herbal Affair & Festival ~Sand Springs, Ok

    Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

    We went to the Sand Springs Herbal Affair and Festival this morning!

    We did not stay very long but it was a nice start to our Saturday.

    These soaps smelled so good!

    And so did the spices, and the herbs, and the food…

    I wanted it all pretty much.

    aherbfestDSC_4809 aherbfestDSC_4811 aherbfestDSC_4812 aherbfestDSC_4814 aherbfestDSC_4819 aherbfestDSC_4821

    No clue who these people were that dressed up as a King and Queen but the kids got a kick out of it.

    aherbfestDSC_4825 aherbfestDSC_4829

    Wore the wrong shoes…

    aherbfestDSC_4830 aherbfestDSC_4835

    They all really liked the shuttle ride from the parking lot to the festival!

    aherbfestDSC_4837

    It was very chilly which was funny since last week we went to the Herb Festival in Jenks and it was hot!
