Saturday Adventure

I was in need of adventure on Saturday and have made little progress on my Oklahoma experiences for the year, so we decided to head west to Red Rock Canyon state park.
 We stopped for lunch at Johnnies in El Reno where our families have eaten for generations. They are known for the onion burgers and coneys...but lately what I've raved about is the Chocolate mystery pie!! So good!

We drove the rest of the way to Red Rock and drove through the whole park to check things out first. The canyon was once a Winter Camp for the Plains Indians, and later was a stop along the California Road Trail. Today there are camping and RV spots, lots of picnic areas, some playgrounds, a pool with a small splash pad area, a couple of trails, and several places to rock climb/rappel. We were planning on hiking, but the trail was pretty steep for a new walker and three year old. So we opted out of that for some other activities better suited for our little ones.

 Benjamin loved picking up the sticks and dropping them through the holes on this bench. He might have stayed there the whole time if we didn't move to another area.

Climbing the kids' rock 

Throwing rocks in the water
We should have taken swimsuits- the pool and water area looked fun!

Snow cone stop in Hinton before heading home 

Isabella said her favorite part was throwing rocks, climbing the rock, and having a snow cone and listening to pony songs. (Sometimes its hard to choose just one favorite part! ;)
