This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Fun at Turnerfalls

On Sunday Bradley and I were invited to go with my brother out to Turnerfalls! It is one of the VERY few pretty places in Oklahoma about an hour's drive from where I live. We packed up and headed south for a day of fun in the sun!

This was Brad's first time here and he loved it! He was a little freaked out by walking on the rocks and mossy creek bottom but he chilled out and ended up having a blast playing. I haven't been here in almost 8 years and it looked much better than the last time I was here. The water level was way up and the 77ft falls were the strongest I had ever seen them.

You used to be able to swim underneath the falls and hang out on the rocks, but that is roped off now and you can only swim out in the open water area. The water is strangely blue (and cold!) but also surprisingly clear almost all the way to the bottom.

Downstream from the falls is a long winding creek with terraced rocks and a good current that you can float along and splash around in the pools. We had fun walking along it and swimming in the different areas.

We all had a fun time and thankfully I remembered to bring sunscreen! It was the perfect way to cool off on a hot humid day.
