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.

Fun Learning Experience at Fort Worth Museum of Science and History

Fort Worth Museum of Science and History – Fort Worth, Texas

This year’s Spring Break was spent in Fort Worth. We visited all the attractions my DD planned of visiting.

Because we arrived quite early at the hotel, DD and I decided to go to the museum in Downtown Fort Worth. There were a few nice museums there but we agreed to go to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. Lots of interesting artifacts (replicas) from the dinosaur age are on display in the museum. We enjoyed the most is the history of ranching in Texas. DD and I were fascinated with the different breeds of cows. 🙂

It feels mind-refreshing to be in a museum. You will see exhibits that will fascinate you and will make you ask “did these really happen?”. You will learn lots of knowledge and ingenuity. The experience takes you to the past while you are living in the modern times-where the old and the new meet and you are in between.

Museums are one of the best learning resources for your children. You should visit at least one whenever you travel or when you are on vacation. You and your family will surely enjoy it. 🙂

Decent Affordable Hotel Accommodation in Fort Worth

We surely enjoyed this year’s Spring Break. My darling daughter was satisfied with all our adventures we had this week. One of her favorites was our hotel room accommodation in Fort Worth. We did not go back to the hotel where we stayed last year because the room smelled like fried fish. She even called it “fried fish hotel”. Lol

Anyway, we stayed at Hyatt Place Cityview Fort Worth this time. The room rate was $3 higher than the “fried fish hotel”. I grabbed it anyway since we wanted to try to stay in a new hotel this year.

It was a good decision because the room was nice. The living area is big and they gave us two double beds and one sofa bed room. The downside was, the room has a small closet and small bathroom. The front office seems kinda ‘cold’ but we enjoyed staying at Hyatt Place. 🙂

DD even told me she wanted to buy one of the rooms so she can live there. I said hopefully when she finished college and get a high paying job or high earning business in the future. 🙂
