Fun Friday: Greenleaf State Park

 We continued our state park trips with a day at Greenleaf State Park, which is just about an hour south of us.

 It kind of looks like Jack is in the water here, but he really wasn't.  I didn't want to go down and see how close he actually was!

 It was much colder than we thought it would be but the kids had a good time playing anyway.

 There is plenty of space to run, which is always a good thing.

 We got to take a wagon ride all around the park.

 Steve Evans, the naturalist at Greenleaf, gave us a tour while we were riding.

 All that green stuff in the tree is mistletoe, which is Oklahoma's state flower.

 We saw several deer, too!

 Back at the nature center we got to see some snakes.  While the naturalist was telling the kids about the snake, the snake started crawling through his belt loop!

 Alice was really not sure about it!

 Jack thought he really wanted to hold the snake until he held the snake.  I think he was about three seconds from throwing it across the room.

 Did I mention there was plenty of room to run?

 Alice and her walking stick.

 We also got to try out the mini-golf.

 Alice went with the raking technique.

 Checking out a lamp inside one of the mini-golf structures.

We finished up with some time on the walking trail.  It was cold and we came home completely worn out, but we had a great time!
