We finally made it to Oklahoma and enjoyed the wedding and seeing family! On our last full day there my uncle took us to a place called Woolaroc. Ever been? It's a 2 mile drive through woods, lakes and rocks back to a historical indian/pioneer museum. My kinda thing! We spent about 4 hours pouring over animals, indian artifacts and statues. I had a great time - we all did!
I have a lot of Indian heritage in my family line - so it was really neat to learn some facts vs. myths and kinda see how they lived. The statues and artwork here was amazing. The sad thing about my heritage is that over the years prejudice and hate has erased some of our past - pages of history erased or torn up and thrown away... sad.
What a fun day! The added bonus was spending time with my parents. I had been feeling homesick especially for my mom and dad - this was a great time to reconnect and just be together. And of course, I'm so thankful for my loving husband who took time out of his busy schedule to drive us down for a fun weekend!
After this busy day I have one very tired family... but the trip was awesome and we loved our on the road adventure!
