Trip to Oklahoma

It's always nice going back to the place you grew up. I was very happy to catch a few hard rains and a good thunderstorm! The smell of Daylight Doughnuts and devouring a chocolate Long John brought back lots of memories. I also enjoyed drinking Braums whole milk for two weeks, Blue Bell ice cream, brisket smothered in Head Country bbq sauce, Spinach Artichoke pasta from Zio's AND my mom's chicken enchiladas! Man I love food! I was also spoiled with a nap everyday! Thanks Mom for that!!! It was really a wonderful trip all around, including the plane rides!!! I was amazed at how well both of them did! I kept dishing out the new toys and treats and it worked like a charm! White skin from Idaho enjoying some serious sunshine.

Thanks Aunt Melissa for the cute dress, sorry you had to work a ton, but we are excited to see you up at school soon!


These pictures were taken at Bounce U, (like Bounce University), pretty cute, anyway I love this pic of Benj screaming because it was so unlike him! After that first slide down he kept going up and down who knows how many times.

Aunt Linus and Uncle Greg visiting from OU. Thanks for hanging out with us and for the super awesome pink track suit!

We celebrated Maggie's first birthday a few days early in Ok. Benjamin was a big help with blowing out the candle, opening her presents, and playing with her presents. That's what brothers are for, right?

Well, school started today so the house is still not all together. Hopefully after the weekend we will post some pictures.

Your kids are so adorable. I have to say that Maggie was so cute with cake on her face. Ainsley was slimed! Congrats on the house! I cannot wait to see it!

That is so funny that your trips home are always centered around food. We have a list, too. Cheddars, El Chico, Braums, Rons and until recently Sonic. Before, the only Sonic in Ohio was an hour away. Now four have been built within 15 miles of our house. Not so appealing when we can have it whenever we want. Maybe we can coordinate our next trip home. It would be great to have a reunion of sorts with everyone. I think we are shooting for Thanksgiving.
