Happy Campers

As mentioned last week, we went camping this past weekend. This expedition took us to Chickasaw National Recreation Area in Oklahoma, and oh my goodness, did we have fun!

We spent hours playing in the springs and waterfalls:

The water is cold, around 60 degrees, so it was a refreshing break from the summer temps that won't let go.

What else did we do?

The boys explored their Big Daddy's tool box. (That's my dad...all 128 pounds of him calls for the name Big Daddy.)
We took walks.
Enjoyed dusk at the lake.
Demonstrated how to skip rocks.
Ate s'mores! (The boys are anxiously awaiting their first s'more experience. Jack and Garrett loved them, men after my own heart. Liam didn't really care for them, and I just don't understand why! What's not to love about them?!)
And the boys crashed hard at night.
Chickasaw is a fabulous place to vacation with the hiking trails, nature center, refreshing springs, and large lake. I can't wait to go back!

Sounds like a fun weekend! I'm with you on the s'mores! And I love the picture of the boys asleep in the bed--precious!

What beautiful photos! We are always shocked at how COLD the water is! It's got to be about 105 outside in order to get me to go in! We haven't been there for several years - you make me want to go back!
