Summer Vacation 2009(part 1)

The first part of our vacation was Monday. We went to Beaver's Bend State park here in OK. It is a couple hrs from home. Since the hotel we were first going to stay at had caution tape around it. . .(no I am NOT kidding)Mom promptly said Dad better find us a new nesting place fr the night, when he said he could just check it out, I said I would personally make sure he was outlined in chalk within the paremeters of that caution tape. He decided to side with me. So we stayed at a lovely lodge with a gorgeous view of the lake. Had a 24 hr stay. GREAT food(catfish) and had canoe and paddleboat fun. Oh, and go karts.

The other end of the canoe! Um, sort of looked like the D Man was resting. . . but then again, I was taking pictures so oh well.

The big boys got to do the paddle boat. And they took off!!

This is what Olivia does every time we go to the hotel. She finds the Bible there and begins to look up her favorite verse.(Ps 4:8, which we have painted onto her bedroom wall) She loved reading out on the balcony at the lodge.

This is what D man does every time we go to a hotel. lol But to be fair, he HAD driven a few hrs.

It looks wonderful and I am so glad you are feeling better. I've been out of the reading loop for weeks now and I've missed so much!
