Vacation 2014 Part 2: At the Park

We vacationed at Sequoyah State Park, an amazing state park 30 minutes away from Tahlequah. It's close enough to be convenient (read: we didn't freak out about whether we'd forgotten anything), but far enough away that with a room at the resort we felt like we were away from it all.

We went on the Watermelon Hay Ride, in which we got all itchy from hay while we trundled behind a tractor, and then ate Farmer's Market watermelon until we were all ready to burst.

We went on hikes. Lots and lots of hikes.

And more hikes. And in between hiking we did nature prints on tshirts. 

We went on tram rides around the park. The kids thought we were on a choo choo train.  

Or, as Ion says, a too too wain.

And as Heidi says, chugga chugga choo choo comin' fwoo.

We flew airplanes.

And we played in the dirt.

And we went on more, more hikes. And picked up rocks. And did some more hiking. 

And we rode horses and swam and played on the splash pad and ate ice cream and made necklaces and did so many things that I was frankly too tired to take pictures of. And we slept soundly every night. Except the first night. 20 limbs in 2 double beds is quite crowded, but I'm pretty sure we could have all been on the floor and still slept soundly. Having fun all day with toddlers is a way more effective sleep medicine than Ambien, let me tell you.

Tomorrow: we went to the zoo a few times too.
