Secora started the day with some very serious "jumping off a tree stump" practice.
While we worked on packing up the tent site, the little girls wandered off a little bit. Turned out they were searching for earth worms. And it turns out Secora, usually the sensory avoider, loves holding on to earth worms, who would've known?
nickle and dime you. Each separate activity here would cost money, so right from the get go, we planned to sleep somewhere else so we weren't having to constantly tell the kids, "no". In particular, getting into this "water park" would have cost us $26, on top of the camp site fee and the diamond searching fee. I took a picture of the water park because I was shocked it was so small
The girls were hot and cranky, so when we left, we made a quick stop at a gas station for icees and then we were at Daisy State Park
We started to designate camp jobs at this point. The girls set to work setting up the tent with help from Josh as needed
And I would get the campfire going and start dinner
At first, we took the wrong pathway and by the time I figured out the trick and got to the right path, it was fully dark, we had crossed paths with a snake, and the girls were scared. Now that I knew it would be possible to follow the same track during the day, we just went back to camp and came by the next morning to grab the cache. I'm glad we did, it would have been hard to spot the box in the dark. This was a birthday themed cache with lots of party favors inside
One last picture from day 2, all the flowers I stopped to take pictures of! The top row were spotted in Texas and the bottom row were spotted in Arkansas.
After another peaceful night sleeping without the rain fly on, we were ready to tackle Day 3! Next up is a long drive day, with a stop at Little Rock Central High and then a night at a camping spot I would never recommend to anyone, followed by a day in Nashville.
