Family and Friends Summer Cabin Experience ( Momimhar posted on August 15th, 2021 )

Several weeks ago, we went to a cabin summer getaway with some close friends of mine. It was my dear friend K who actually asked everyone in our friend circle if any of us wanted to join. The cabin location was in Hochatown, Oklahoma, where the popular Beaver’s Bend State Park is. This friends and family get-together plan has been long overdue because we couldn’t get an ideal schedule for some reason. Finally, it came true.

So my friend booked an 8-room cabin near the state park. The luxury cabin is called Lakeside Mansion, and it was huge! It’s a fully-furnished cabin with big patio, outdoor jacuzzi, and a fishing deck. It was a 4 days and 3 nights weekend accommodation for 8 families with young children and teenagers.

Because it was located near the state park, and it’s summer, we had a lot of fun. Water activities and swimming in the river kept the young ones busy. Us moms got busy with the cooking and chaperoning. The dads stood as guardians and took care of the expenses. Haha.

Also, it was a Father’s Day weekend, so we prepared a restaurant fine dining dinner for the dads at the cabin that Saturday night. We cooked:

  • Brisket
  • Chicken Fajitas
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Clam Chowder
  • Salad
  • Wine

Us moms had our own dinner table. We prepared a “Boodle Fight” style table. All the food was spread out in an arranged manner on banana leaves.

  • Pork BBQ
  • Grilled Fish
  • Grilled Squid
  • Grilled Shrimp
  • Roasted Chicken
  • Rice
  • Pansit
  • Bibingka
  • Suman
  • Fruit variety

Fall Weekend Getaway ( Momimhar posted on October 13th, 2020 )

Fall colors.

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.
