Family Adventures

I have come to realize something after looking through the files on my camera--I'm really bad at putting everything up on the blog. So, with that said, I now bring you memories of our first trip to Grand Lake in Oklahoma. Since we didn't take a big vacation this summer, we decided to take a few long weekends close to home. Our first trip was Memorial Day weekend; Fergie got to go with us, but we boarded her in Grove. The trip is under two hours for us, so I know we'll be going back.


Grand Lake is definitely a summer tourist place, as it was filled with families with boats, skis and flip flops. We went out to the marina and looked around, attempted to go fishing before the rain blew in, and spent lots of time in the resort's pool.  The resort was very nice and the kids wouldn't have cared if we did nothing but swim in the pool and play in the hot tub. In other words, it was perfect!


We did find the Bernice State Park that was near our resort. There were lots of people camping there, but we found a nice playground and walking trail. The kids threw rocks into the lake and we introduced the little ones to honeysuckle. We went into the park's Nature Center to see fun things like a working bee colony, live box turtles and a few snakes in cages. The kids even got to play some games with the park workers.




This is my favorite photo from the whole weekend! Daddy and his baby girl on the walking trail.








We got a little surprise visitor on our 2nd floor balcony one night--a little frog! 




This is the resort where we stayed; Wyndham Grand Lake. We will be going back for another visit soon!
