Since we didn’t have school last Friday, our family went to Beaver’s Bend Stae Park in Oklahoma for a weekend getaway. The weather was very pleasant so the whole trip was amazing. Darling daughter was able to go swimming in Mountain Fork River. I wasn’t able to join her because I had my monthly visitor.*sad*. Nevertheless, we had a great time exploring. DD and dear husband got the chance to shoot the BB gun in a secluded part of the park.
Beaver’s Bend State Park is one of the best place to unwind and getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big city. 🙂 It’s Fall season so seeing some colorful foliage was one of the greatest experiences. Things to do at Beaver’s Bend State Park can be found here.
We had a lot of fun on our summer beach vacation this year. Darling daughter has been wanting to go to the beach so she got her wish. We went to Gulf Shores, Alabama. It’s our first time to be at the Alabama Beaches. It was a very long drive but we made to and back safe and sound.
We stopped in Slidell, Louisiana for a night because we wanted to visit dear husband’s high school. It was a good feeling to know where your significant schooled. He said a lot has changed in 38 years. We had dinner at Fatty’s Seafood Restaurant in Slidell. Their seafood platter and gumbo was really good that we were stuffed we almost couldn’t walk to the car. Haha!
K’s excited was to the roof. She had a lot of questions about the hotels, restaurants, and of course, the beach. Six days and five nights in Gulf Shores are enough for the three of us.
An hour after we checked in at the Comfort Inn in Gulf Shores, we headed towards the beach immediately. We got there before the Gulf storms so the waves are quite swelling those days. But we had a great time playing in the sand and riding the waves. There was only one day when it rained so hard and gusty winds blew the sands all over the place. The next two days were amazingly sunny. Wave boarding was a lot of fun. There were many people on the beach but we maintained distanced from one another. Everything was fine.
