July 2, 2024-Celebrating the 4th in NW Arkansas, Oklahoma, and in Panama City

(click for today's pictures)

Robby was awake this morning when some of our campers went through the breakfast line. Then we were driving tonight and I was able to see all of them but Keaton go through the supper line. I also found a picture of Graham and one of Campbell on their instagram. Tonight they went to a little amusement park, so I am sure that was a lot of fun.

This morning we left around 11 or maybe earlier, I don't really know! Hooking up was fine, but it is just hot out there. We drove to Siloam Springs were Robby had a Panda Express order for us. That was also a good stop for gas. 

And since we were so close to the Little Debbie store in Gentry, we had to stop there. Most importantly, I found an ornament for the food Christmas tree. And most fun was the whole case of birthday Little Debbie cakes that we bought for just 5 dollars. Robby plans to take them on his trip later in July with the 9th and 10th graders. We also bought about 6 other boxes of snacks for us-we did all of that for about 18 dollars so that was a lot of fun.

After our shopping, we hit the road again and drove on to Osage Hills State Park. It is a neat park which is very similar to Petit Jean without all of the scenery though. It still has scenery, but it is spread out with lots of CCC buildings throughout.

It took us a few minutes to back in and get level, but no curse words were said. Kidding, it wasn't bad at all. Robby did all the outside things, and soon we were digging into the BBQ that we picked up in Bartlesville. And I am not sure if Robby thought that all of the kids were with us or not, but we had enough food for all 8 of us. That is fine though because I already had a package of buns, and we can have bbq for the rest of the trip. (We have other meals that we have brought to make, but I doubt we will get to any of those on this trip.)

After eating, we drove around the campground to see everything. When we returned, Robby and I took Bentley on a walk around the camping loop. Now, we are all snug in the camper and praising the Lord for our air conditioners.
