Tea Lady By Day

Oklahoma State Park - Roman Nose Resort!

Blake, Ben and Brock fishing on the Watonga Lake.

The inside of the RV (ok, so maybe not roughing it entirely!)
Catching anything yet?

The set up....Eric and I and the boys sleep in the pop up trailer
hey, they both have air conditioning who's complaining?

The family having breakfast al fresco!
Eric and the boys hiked up a can see the lodge and a tepee in the background.
The three B's looking back over the lake.

Eric and my dad golfing!

Blake and Benjamin with Eric swinging his clubs!

A little campfire magic to end the day of adventure.

So my dad promised the boys...camping before they started back to school.
With all of the weddings, tea parties, showers and events we don't get to camp as much as we would all like too. Secretly, I would like to take the boys to all the State Parks.
Did you know Oklahoma has 50 State Parks that reflect the beauty and diversity of our state?
So far we have visited (Ft. Cobb State Park, Lake Murray State Park, Lake Texoma State Park, Red Rock Canyon State Park, Roman Nose State Park and The Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge)
There is just something about making memories with your family camping in the great outdoors. Something always goes a little wrong...but that's what makes it an adventure.
So...I'm the tea lady by day and the mom of three boys after-hours at night and weekends.
It's like I go into a phone booth (like Superman) and change hats.
Lace, fountains, soft music, and china teacups are replaced with all things boys like: fishing, getting dirty, golf, hiking did I mention getting dirty?
It really is the best of both worlds.
Which makes me you think God had an ulterior motive giving us all boys?
He really does have a sense of humor and a good plan for our lives.
Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the give you hope in your final outcome."
God wants us to know He has a good plan for all of us.
He intends to do us good.
