Bartlesville and Claremore, Oklahoma

We have spent the last two days quietly recovering from our first Kidology to Go in Locust Grove. After packing up and doing an inventory check and report, we were all tired and ready to just spend some quiet family time together. Sunday afternoon we drove up to Bartlesville (it was on our way and had a Passport America Campground). On the way we stopped in Claremore and visited the Will Rogers Museum. This is a donation based museum ($9 suggested for families) and not only did we learn a little bit more about Will Rogers (did you know that he died in a plan crash in Alaska), they have an entire basement dedicated to kids playing and pretending. Our boys actually had to be given three-minute warning to leave the basement! We all also enjoyed watching oldfootage of Will Rogers doing his roping tricks, and seeing the dioramas of his life.

Then we moved on to Bartlesville where we have visited Keepsake Candle Company, played on an old caboose and found a nifty park to play in. They also have a nice walking path here, along with lots of Buffalo statues brightly painted hanging around town and an interesting piece of architecture called the Price Building
Tomorrow we move on to a state park that we are excited about, before moving onto Kansas!
