Weekend Getaway

*Yes, another non-wedding recap post. I have people that requested pictures, so here ya go! :) *

This past weekend, Matt & I went to southern Oklahoma, stayed at a Bed & Breakfast, hiked, relaxed, ate tons of good food, and overall had an amazing time. It basically felt like a second mini-honeymoon, though we've only been married for a little under 2 months. Anyway, here are more details:

Lodging: Shiloh Morning Inn
It was located a few minutes away from town, so it had this amazing view over the countryside. Our suite included a private balcony and huge windows that allowed sunlight to come in when the sun rose. We could go outside at night and see tons of stars. The Inn sits on 70 acres of land, and they have plenty of walking trails to explore the property, along with hammocks. And the breakfast was absolutely amazing! They had hummingbird feeders along the front porch, so while you were eating breakfast, you could look out and see the little birds flying around. Made for an amazing atmosphere!

Sorry this one came out so dark...

And the other part. How come these pictures never come out as good as in real life?

Going for a walk one evening around the property

We went hiking at Turner Falls park but it was so crazy hot (we left around noon). We might have gone swimming or something, but instead we hiked several miles, found the tallest waterfall in OK, and saw a castle!

The falls- normally more water but with the drought and all...

Our dinner that night- PB&J, sparkling grape juice, and fruit!
PS-this Wal-Mart carried no wine whatsoever (though they carried beer, etc). Anyone know why??

Basically, it was an amazing weekend and it was so hard coming back to the real world. We are already thinking about the next time we can go to Shiloh Morning Inn...


  1. How fun!! The falls are gorgeous.

  2. Fun! Oh, Oklahoma. My home state! I miss it!

  3. Oh, I forgot to tell you that that castle is actually our summer home...

    That looks like a nice place! We really want to go hiking in the fall so we may have to check it out. Although Travis will probably want to camp, haha.

    And I do not know why that Wal-mart would have beer but no wine. What a travesty.
