Rather than writing a lot about our vacation, we thought we'd let the photos say it all. We stayed at the Hotel Catalonia Royal Bavaro and had a wonderful all-inclusive vacation experience!Read More
Every October, we celebrate fall and the changing of the seasons with a fun, family-friendly get together where we carve pumpkins, eat tasty treats, and enjoy the cooler weather outside with friends and family. This was our first year having this event at our new house as a married couple so it was really special and we had a great turn out! Check out some of the photos from the event below. Hope to see you there next year!
This past weekend, we headed out to the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge near Lawton, Oklahoma to do some hiking. This is one of our favorite areas to go explore outdoors and we always seem to get one nice weekend in January. So we jumped at the chance to get outside and stretch our legs!
Our favorite area to go within the refuge is a place called Charon's Garden. It's a large area with several official trails that wind past caves and waterfalls. It's also a very popular area and we found the parking lot packed on this particular Saturday. So we quickly retreated to a lesser known spot in the same general area.
When we hike, we have a rough idea of where we're heading but we don't usually follow the trails, choosing instead to explore and find new places. We're rarely disappointed! This time, we found a new cave on the north side of the mountain that we had to climb through to reach the other side. That was the highlight of the day!
Denny brought along the GoPro on a chest mount so that we could film some of our adventure. It can't quite capture the beauty of the place but it's a fun record of our climb.
