Over Thanksgiving we made a 13+ hour drive to see my dad and stepmom in the middle of nowhere…seriously. They live in a little tiny town in Oklahoma. But, here’s the thing, we found cool things to see while we were there.
Boggy Depot State Park was a very fascinating place off the beaten path. It gave us a great opportunity to see something we wouldn’t normally see and share some history with Boegley at the same time. It was used as a Confederate commissary depot during the Civil War. More importantly, it was a very important town in the Choctaw Nation. Great worldschool moment 🙂
And, of course, we took time to act like dorks! I mean what else are you to do with a closed old building…just run and fake a cartoon break-through-the-wall moment. Way to go Rob!
Boegley took some time to check out the water’s edge. It was actually a bit too chilly to wander off on one of the walking trails that day, but there it’s a great little place to explore and spend some time in nature.
It got a thumbs up from the little guy! Lots of information to take in on the signs. And, just a feeling there that you can’t explain. It was like the Native Americans were still there – you could just feel their energy.
Most importantly I got to spend some time with family! When you live a life of freedom it is actually easier to travel and see the various members of your family no matter where they might be.
Working and living where we want, when we want and how we want,
Janelle, Rob and Boegley
