Daniel's parents drove their RV to Skiatook Lake this weekend which is about 40 minutes from our house. The girls stayed last night and are staying again tonight with them in the RV. Daniel and I drove up to enjoy the day with them this afternoon. We went for a nature trail walk, had lunch at a nearby Legend's Bar-b-que, and played in the sand near the swimming area. The girls are loving their camping experience even though it's been raining off and on all day. Luckily, while Daniel and I were there, the rain held off and the sun came out. It actually got hot enough to take off our jackets. Right before we left we switched the girls into t-shirts and shorts so they could wade in the water. While we were sitting on a picnic bench outside, I read a library book entitled "It Could Still be a Butterfly" to the girls as part of our current 2 week lesson plans all about insects. We didn't see any butterflies today, but we did see a certain kind of tree that the local Boyscouts had planted a sign next to. It said that this tree was used by early American settlers to build wagon wheels. That's why for a while this tree was in danger of being wiped out in our country. I wish I could remember the name of the tree. I'll have to ask Danya tomorrow. She always remembers details like that.
