My husband recently had the idea to take the family to the southern Oklahoma town of Ardmore, so I, being the good homeschool mom that I am, turned it into an educational outing!
I think a day trip to almost any town can be turned into a mini-vacation. Even small towns hold many possibilities for recreation and education.
So, here’s what we did:
Our first stop was at our local zoo for the daily giraffe feeding:
Claudia knew how to enjoy Mexican, though. She enjoyed a delicious sopapilla for dessert!
Now that our tummies were full, we headed out for some education. We first passed this old steam locomotive. This was an unplanned stop, but sometimes those are the best kind!
Claudia ordered the Big Bad Hot Fudge Sundae. It was HUGE. She shared with Nathan.
