We have been staying close to home this summer but that doesn't mean that there is not a lot of places to explore. I played around with the idea of taking a little trip to Galveston for the 4th of July but we decided to stay a little closer to home and do something my kids love.... camping.
We have had a lot of fun the last few weeks checking out a lot of camping areas close to us. Being close to Lake Texoma gives us lots of options on both the Oklahoma side and the Texas side. Some we are familiar with and others we have never been to. We checked out Eisenhower State park in Texas and saw a dear and about 15 rabbits. The kids loved that. I loved that I didn't run into the dear because she was that close to our car! Over on the Oklahoma side we had fun wading and collecting shells and rocks.
As it turns out, although we have a ton of camping areas near us- most of them are already booked up for the 4th of July weekend. So we ended up booking the last available spot in the camp area we chose. Our new tent is on the way. have been scouring pinterest for all things camping related. So stick with us for more camp related vacation posts!
Exciting! We are booked for our next cruise. We will be sailing again on the lovely Disney Wonder when she returns to the Port of Galveston during November of 2015! This time we will be onboard for 7 nights. We will be visiting the Nassau Bahamas, Key West, Florida, and Castaway Key. Yes, we love Disney Cruises!
In other news, I am working on a new project that I hope to have posted here soon. I am doing a series of HOW TO videos for the craft section of the blog! In the first video I will be showing you how to create a simple, no sew Fish Extender!
Welcome to the Travel Time Mama Travel Blog. I am so glad you have taken a moment to share some of our family adventures. I hope that my blog and website will inspire you to travel with your family, be it a cruise, a road trip, a "stay-cation" or a day trip. I believe every family can make travel of some sort a part of their life. Travel is a mindset as much as it is a physical destination. I also believe that realistic expectations are the key to a successful travel experiance. Which is while you will see the good, the bad, and the ugly that happens when we travel!
