Springtime Roadtrip.

Oklahoma springtime fields.

Arkansas. Cousins. Fields of buttercups. Tire swing. The Child’s first time camping. Cows. Roosters. Horses. Springtime.

Such a beautiful time of the year. Gorgeous mosses, big nope space (leaves of three, leave it be). Picnic at the park. Such warm memories made. Driving home today… Gasquatch stop and The Husband trying to get a wave. He always tries to get a wave.

Southfork Ranch

It was a beautiful day, one of the best days! We caravanned eastward with some friends and spent the day at Southfork Ranch. Famous for being the place where portions of the show “Dallas” was filmed. There was a gun show going on in the event center there, so we walked through and checked it all out. I ended up buying jalapeño almond toffee… at the gun show. 😂 So me!

Then we took the tour of Southfork Ranch. We had a great tour guide and a wonderful docent. Such interesting stories about the place. If you want to drop $2k, you can spend the night in the mansion. I was surprised to find out a couple years ago that the ranch was actually not all that far from us. I especially loved their miniature donkeys and miniature horses. I know I said it already, but what a beautiful day!

Dallas Arboretum Blooming Good Time

We’ve been meaning to get over to the Dallas Arboretum. They have so many acres of tulips blooming, but life keeps happening. Next year, we hope to go a little earlier in the season to see MORE tulips.

Lights on the Farm

Lights on the Farm at Heritage Farmstead Museum did not disappoint tonight. They say there’s over a million lights, and I believe them!

South Dakota

South Dakota: Mt. Rushmore, Keystone, Custer Park, Norbeck Overlook and a simple evening walking the property at our hotel, hanging out by the train tracks and then the fire pit.

The scent memory is strong – the sweet scent of pine trees and slight nip of mountain air. Indescribable, but much loved here.
