Ha Ha Tonka State Park - Memorial Day Weekend

 Fine Print: Picture overload :)!!

Beautiful overlook of Lake of the Ozarks

A KC business man bought this land in the early 1900s and started building a "castle." Only a year after he started building it, he was killed in an automobile accident. His sons finally completed the castle in 1922 and in 1942, the castle and stable were burned by a fire and in 1976 the water tower also burned.

Here are the remains of the castle.

Mommy even snuck in on a picture!

Our map reader

One tired lil dude!

A natural bridge

She found some bugs crawling on this limb and was very fascinated with them.

Posing for a picture on own way to the springs

Beautiful blue/green water

Checking everything out

Look at that hair again!!!

We found some wildlife! And we even had a snake cross the path in front of us too.

Walking back to the car

She had a blast exploring everything and wanted to go even further, but lil man was done for the day and starting to make life miserable for everyone else.

I can't wait to go on more of these fun adventures with the kids! It's so fun watching them take everything in!!
