Memorial Day 2020 Weekend Getaway Beavers Bend State Park

We finally went on a road trip on Memorial Day weekend. We drove back to Oklahoma to spend a couple of days in Broken Bow and visited Beavers State Park. It has been a family tradition every year. We love the place more and more every time we visit.

Mountain Fork River at Beavers Bend State Park

This visit was mostly to do exploring and hiking along the river. Because it’s the start of the Summer Break, there are so many visitors to the lake. We couldn’t even find a parking spot close to the swimming areas. So we just enjoyed the cold water at the spillway.

It’s always fun to explore especially when you are with family and friends. You build strong bond together sharing stories that bring happiness to your soul.

We’re all aware that travel situations are not gonna be the same. Always be cautious and keep your health and safety a priority.

Plans On Warm Windy Weather

Texas sky.

Hi there! How’s everyone? Happy March 1st! Yes, it is already March 1, 2020. Can you believe it? It’s windy and mostly cloudy today here in Texas. It is warm outside and great to go have fun outdoors. But with this winds, I’ll just hang out on my front or back porch cleaning a little bit-sweeping off the dead leaves.

Spring is just right around the corner. Do you have travel plans on Spring Break yet? My friends and I were planning to visit our other friend who recently moved to Houston. But there’s a change of plans so we might just do it in the summer. I don’t have any fixed travel plans for Spring Break yet. I asked my darling daughter what she’s interested in doing next week but sounds like she doesn’t want to go farther away. With this new virus issue in the state, we might do staycation again this year.

Fall Break Road Trip 2019

It was a very nice vacation spent in Arkansas. Lots of driving (me the whole time) but it was a great experience. We went to visit caves in Eureka Springs and drove through the Ozark National Forest on our way to Russellville and spent the night there before heading home the next day. DD got a “motion sickness” for a bit while we were driving through the Ozark mountain’s winding roads. We were in the forest for a while. 😀

Fall Breaks falls on the same time when The Great State Fair of Texas is happening. We get free tickets to the State Fair but we’re not able to go because the family has other plans since my DD started school. So we had to give the free tickets away to friends or family who needs them.
