We spent the first weekend of Spring Break in Broken Bow, OK with some playgroup friends.
It was such a fun place to get away for a couple days.
There were 6 families that rented 3 cabins near the state park.
Our plan was to leave Saturday morning and get to BB around lunch time. It wasn't until the night before when we were looking up directions of how to get there that we realized the Ranch was pretty much on the way to BB.
So we texted out last minute that we were going to stop at the Ranch and play a little since we couldn't check into our cabins until 3:00 anyway.
I was surprised but excited when every family texted back that they wanted to join us too!
The ranch was pretty much solid mud from LOTS of rain.
We thought it might rain on us the whole weekend also, but we were so blessed with the weather. Lots of mud in the sunshine, which was perfect for us.
We took turns taking the kids for rides on the various "equipment" we have down there and they just loved it.
Nothing says true love like matching family brand trucker hats.

Lots of mud is pretty perfect for this boy.
Boys climbing pretty much anything they could find
A pile of logs? Let's climb it!
Love a pic inside a tractor wheel

We got to the cabins in the late afternoon and pretty much just chilled the rest of the evening. All three cabins were right next to each other so our kids just ran around outside and played in the creek, on the swing set, on their bikes, shot bow and arrows, and anything else you can do outside.
I think Ty found the largest stick he could hold to play in the creek.

Crafts on the front porch
There was at least some kid in a hot tub at all times.
These boys showing off their muscles are too cute.
Hot tub baths for the weekend, for sure!
Smores in pjs...does life get better???
I had no idea how beautiful this little slice of OK was.
It is just gorgeous!
The cliffs and valleys and rivers and waterfalls.
It's just breathtaking.
We had a picnic lunch near the water
As soon as we eat, we have to potty. BOYS!??!
We waded through the River...
We pretended to fish.
We went canoeing and it was so so fun!
We thought it might storm right as we finished canoeing but the weather held off again and we went to explore the rockbed of the river below the dam.
It was gorgeous.
"My buddy RyRy"
This is what it looks like when you throw a rock at someone and have to sit in time out in a State Park. He also proceeded to try to follow Ben across the river where he specifically was told NOT to cross and fell right in.
Completely soaked head to toe.
We can usually all use a little listen and obey lesson.
We shared our cabin for the weekend with the Nordells.
It was called the "Red Fox Den" and it was probably the smallest of the cabins with 2 bedrooms and one bathroom but the 10 of us loved our cozy little home for the weekend.
Literally there were red foxes everywhere. Stuffed, framed, on plates, cups, bedding, towels, you name it, it had a red fox on it.
Oh our family loves you, Red Fox Den
We stopped on the way back home to meet Inie for lunch in town.
We ate lunch and then went to the city park with her to play a little.
Inie said this was her first "selfie."
I love this picture so much!
