Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, OKC…

While in OKC, one MUST STOP destination is the OKC National Memorial!We visited the memorial last year, but we did not visit the Museum that is located next door.  We had talked about going last year, but weren’t sure how kid appropriate it was, and we just never did it. So, this visit to OKC, […]

Chickasaw National Recreation Area, Oklahoma…

One of the many things that we love about traveling, is all the National Parks we get to visit; and we loved the Chickasaw National Recreation Area.  We love the variety of experiences, historical lessons, and beautiful scenery that they offer, and we also enjoy participating in the NPS’s Jr. Ranger program.  The Jr. Ranger […]

Boys night out with the OKC Barons…

We had such a great 2 weeks in Oklahoma City!  While things didn’t look quite like we planned in the volunteer realm, that down time gave us a chance to catch our breaths, and to spend time exploring OKC as a family instead of just mom and the littles (and middles…).  OKC is quite active […]

Got me some Wild Things at the OKC Zoo!

One of the things that I love about traveling with kids of all ages (we have 9 with us, ages 2 to 18), is that we have an excuse to go anywhere! LOL!  We need to go to the children’s museums for the littles, the science museums for the middles, and unique stops like the […]

Taking on the coasters at Frontier City, OKC…

There are so many family friendly travel destinations here in Oklahoma City!!!  One of our favorites was the Frontier City Amusement Park.Frontier City is a large amusement park (with an adjacent water park!!!) that is super family friendly!  The entire park has a frontier period theme and feel, starting right away in the gift shop, […]

Science Museum Oklahoma…

We’ve been in limbo in OKC for a couple of weeks while waiting to either volunteer with storm shelter installs, or to head home, because as much as we don’t want to, it’s time to go back to Montana and get to work.  We don’t, as much as we would love to, have online or […]

Toot! Toot! Full steam ahead to the OK Railway Museum!

Oklahoma City is set up pretty neat; they have an area in town called the ‘Adventure District’.  The Adventure District encompasses an area of several blocks, and includes family friendly stops like a zoo, science museum, horse racing track (occasionally they have exotic animal races! lol!), the 45th Infantry museum, and a few others – […]

Leaving before the job is done…

3 weeks seemed like such a long time!  But it has flown by, and it’s time for us to put away the gloves and chainsaws (and Sharpie markers), and wrap up our time in Moore. The littles are going to miss all the frogs and toads they have been finding around here!On Tuesday, the littles and I […]

Today…

Just a quick note since I’m too tired to blog; besides, Beth already did it! LOL! The littles and I were without a vehicle today since Eli and Beth took the van to work with the clean up crew.  Vaughn, Jake, and Thomas, took the truck to return the skidsteer to the rental store, then caught […]
