Beautiful Sunday, first nature hike in OKC

We visited a local nature park today, and had a great time! I'm so excited that spring is finally rolling in and we can start to enjoy the outdoors more. We visited many of the nature parks in CA multiple times, so we are excited to explore new territory here in OKC. The landscape is very different--much flatter (but still hilly, despite what my CA friends say!), and much less dense (perhaps because winter is just ending?). The best part of the day was seeing so many fresh animal tracks. In CA, we saw a lot of lizards, squirrels and small rabbits and their tracks. Here we saw raccoon tracks, deer tracks, bobcat tracks, live turtles just hanging out in the brush, and lots of unique birds. It was great! And praise God, Miss O didn't even complain once about being too hot!

There was a creek to wade in:
