Visiting Woolaroc

Mickey and I took the three grands to Woolaroc over the weekend.
 
 
We started Saturday morning by stopping at Cracker Barrel in Shawnee, Oklahoma.  The kids loved the gift shop there.
 
We then started our 3 hour trip to Bartlesville, Oklahoma. 
 
That's right.  3 hours in the car with no source of entertainment except some books and crayons and singing 99 bottles of beer.  It was GREAT!!
 
 
 
 
Once we arrived we drove immediately to see the mountain man camp.  These guys are serious history buffs.  They live the part.
 
Here is Emma getting her turn at shooting a bow and arrow.







This is the camp .
 
 
 
 
 
You find buffalo roaming freely.
 
 
 
 
We had a really nice time touring the museum, lodge and grounds. 


 

 
 


It was worth the trip. 


School starts next week.

That's what we've been up to.

What have you been doing?

Tell me!


Love,

Me

  1. I can't believe I missed your post on visiting Woolaroc! It's one of my most favorite places to visit. I practically grew up there. Back in the day it was free to go. My favorite things in the museum were the shrunken heads, the Indian dancers in the case (back then there was a button that you could push to get it started instead of having to ask someone), the paintings, and most of all the stagecoach. Back then, in the hey day of Roy Rogers and Hop-a-long Cassidy, kids could actually climb into the coach and pretend they were back in the old west.

    If I'd only known you were going to be there I might have been able to finally meet you in person.

    I hope your grands had a grand time!
