Road Trip Yesterday

Crossing the Red River - Oklahoma and Texas border.
Crossing the Red River – Oklahoma and Texas border.

Hello travel buddies!  How’s your weekend?  Are you getting busy with Thanksgiving preparations?  Or, are you on a travel adventure visiting families for this special occasion?  Whatever you are doing in preparation for Thanksgiving, always remember to thank everyone especially those who helped you along the way.  A little gesture of gratefulness goes a long way.

My family and I are busy as well.  The last two weeks were hectic with outdoor activities for the little one.  Since the tumbling and cheer classes was cancelled for the month of November, I had to find some new activities where she can join and socialize.  I was successful to find one.  It’s a Pre-school / Pre-K music and art class at Gymboree.  It’s a long drive to the location, around 50 minutes through traffic, but it’s only once a week and it’s only for November.  I will look for another one closer to our place next month.

We were on the road trip for family fun yesterday.  Although it was freezing, it’s a sunny day and nice day to go on a road trip.  It was only a day trip to Oklahoma yesterday.  We just went to check the new attraction at Choctaw Hotel and Resort called The District.  I will tell more about it in next post.

Have safe travels.
