Broken Bow Trip

Last week we went to Beaver's Bend State Park in Broken Bow, Oklahoma with friends and we had SO MUCH FUN!  I'm not sure how I've lived here for as long as I've had and never made it up there!

We went with friends who have a boat and love to wake surf and we had so much fun on and off the boat.









CAN YOU EVEN?!?!?!


Our friends are awesome wake surfers who can somehow manage to surf WITH KIDS on the board!  









The lake was GORGEOUS and the water was super clear.  #glitterwater :)




One morning we went kayaking/canoeing and it was probably my favorite part of the whole trip.  It rained and the river was GORGEOUS!  




Mason got tired about halfway through and so I hopped out of the canoe and took over his kayak so he could ride in the canoe with Dave and Griffin and the water was FREEZING!!!


  
We had fun out of the water as well...


... including the most epic water balloon fight ever (this wasn't even all the balloons)...


... a kool-aid water gun battle...






... shaving cream balloon toss and batting practice...




... rock painting...


... so many games...


... campfire s'mores...



... performances and dance parties...


... a LOT of coloring...




... a tattoo party...


... and by the end of the week we all pretty much looked like this :)


It was such a great week and we made so many memories.  Thankful for wonderful families and friends!

Happy Tuesday, friends!

    1. I was SUPER surprised by how clear and clean it all was! Even in the lake you could see your feet while you were swimming which you typically don't get around here!

    1. I feel like we've hit our "sweet spot" where everyone is up for a fun time, nobody is really napping and doing things like this are more enjoyable and less work :)
