Austin, Texas

We spent a quick couple days in Austin before heading to the beach for Christmas. We packed a lot into a short stay and had fun exploring Texas’ capitol city. First up, we managed to arrive after dark again, oh well. But it was an exciting night with some noisy visitors after midnight… Ever heard …

Cedar Hill – Bikes and Weather Delays

The first time we came to Cedar Hill it was beyond hot. This time it was cold, dreary and rainy. We were glad for breaks in the weather to get outside and play! They broke the wheel off of this dump truck but that doesn’t slow them down! since we stayed in one spot for …

Fort Worth – Show me the money!

This past week we got to visit the science center in Dallas. We’ve been told that it’s amazing. And it was nice – relatively new and fancy and shiny. It was more a museum than a science center, though, and a lot of the displays didn’t have a lot of  hands on “science learning”. That …

Back to Texas: Mineral Wells State Park

Glad to drive south away from freezing nights and cold winds, we made our way to Mineral Wells State park just west of Fort Worth. Here we got to walk across a spillway. The spillway was actually built higher several years ago because the capacity of the lake went down – so instead of dredging, …

Thanksgiving in Kansas

We swung through Kansas on the way back down to Texas… because that’s on the way, right? Actually it’s probably in the exact wrong direction given the time of year, but hey, we got to check off another Little House stop – the Little House on the Prairie! It was closed for the season and …

Little Rock, Arkansas

Traveling south to Arkansas last week we enjoyed warmer weather again!   We got to go visit the Little Rock science center the one day it rained, which was nice timing! Learning about pulleys! Ever laid on a bed of nails? Ryan couldn’t be left out!

Roaring River State Park, Missouri

Our stay in Missouri at Roaring River State park brought an early Christmas for the girls! They had been asking for a visit to “someplace Laura and Mary” lived, after having read all the Little House books. We were 2 hours away from the House on Rocky Ridge and told them we were going to …

Lake McMurtry and Oklahoma Rattlesnakes

Shortly after arriving at our campsite at our final Oklahoma stop, we went for a walk around the empty camping loop. I walked into an empty campsite, Ryan balanced on my hip, with Rebecca, Zachary and Eliana running behind to catch up. I stopped and turned when I heard their screams to see what they …

Lake Thunderbird, Oklahoma

When camping near the water in Oklahoma, expect wind! It was a very breezy stay here but the view in our backyard was spectacular! We celebrated Halloween while we were here, and enjoyed free hot dogs, candy, and games!  We also had a great science day at the Oklahoma Science center! The scale train display was Zachary’s …

Roman Nose State Park, Oklahoma

We are in Oklahoma for a couple weeks. Driving through Oklahoma is tantalizing – they have a sign at each new town you drive through stating a handful of interesting things to see and do in the town. Being unable to stop and explore each town is a little sad! We spent several days in …
