Okie Road Trip

Today it's Mcklinky Monday at theRHOK.com and it's about trips on a tankful.  So I pulled out an oldie, because I already wrote about it, and, well, I'm lazy why be redundant.
Go on over and link up!

Today we went on a road trip- me, the kids, the dog and my mom (aka, GiGi). The kids had SO much fun- they are already asking to go again. We went to Spavinaw State Park and Little Blue State Park- both over by Grand Lake. Both the creeks have clear water -and the water at Little Blue is also super cold (great for an almost triple digit day!). Both these places are great day trips- and we had a picnic lunch and the dog even somewhat enjoyed himself too. I took a ton of photos- more than are bloggable and you can view them BY CLICKING HERE.

This shot above was taken using my green filter. There are several shots like this in the album, and a few with the blue filter, too. (If you are wondering how or why they look like this.)

Waterfall at Little Blue State Park.

Why is it so hard to get 2 children to look nice in the same picture?

What a lovely family! This makes me miss swimming in the creek below my parent's house.

Your kids are so cute. I love the picture--and the candid ones are best!

Have a great weekend.

The Blue Hole sounds all sorts of horrid on a day like today.
It is the perfect trip for a hot summer day, though. I don't think I could find it again if I tried!

I'm going to have to take my family to Little Blue this year. It seems so much like Blue Hole (obviously everyone will get our two posts confused. LOL!)

I can't believe how much your kids have grown over the past year or two!

Sounds like a fun time -perfect for a hot day! And yeah -why is it hard to get more than 1 kid looking good in a pic ? ;)

We've been up there! The water is cold, but it feels sooooo good during the summer!

Cute pics!

I love Spavinaw! I have many fond memories from when I was a teenager.
