Beavers Bend

Friday Michael flew in from a work trip and we headed out on a family trip to meet up with the Anderson's.  We had this planned for a few months and it was nice knowing on his recent travels that a few days off and some family time was coming up. We spent the night in Durant as Beth and I had been training for a 5K race for that Saturday morning.
It was freezing race morning! But the race went well and we were happy with our time.
We showered off and headed to her parent's cabin in Beaver's Bend. 
It was a relaxing time away- as far as "relaxing" gets with a 3 year old and an almost 6 month old. Haha! Isabella didn't feel well for the first day there, and was really congested the whole time. Lately its seemed like as soon as she gets better, then something else pops up.

Here are some photos from the trip:

The cabin- it was so nice! I'd never been this far into south east Oklahoma. It was really pretty with tons of trees, and the river and lake at the state park were gorgeous!

We rode the train in the state park. Izzy still loves trains.

We saw deer on our train ride!

Great sunset from the back porch! 

Campfire s'mores in the backyard

Meet our friends the Anderson's and our daughter who insisted on being in their picture... :)

Pure joy

I love a baby in a sink bath!

Yummy breakfasts and Isabella showing Milo how to dip your bacon in syrup...

She rarely sleeps in the car anymore, and we had to drive through nap time on the way home. I was really glad she fell asleep. We had about an hour and 15 minutes when both kids were asleep while we drove!! We were able to have uninterrupted conversation!

We had a great time. We didn't get the best sleep between our two kids waking up for various reasons. Michael got to read a whole book. We made risotto that was delicious!  We watched crazy documentaries about "Killer Whales" and "When fish attack". It was fun to visit a new place and make some memories.
