Oklahoma: Part 1

My trip to Oklahoma started out waaay too earlier.  Logan had to be at the airport at like 5 in the morning.  I dropped him off then waited til about 630 to go to my friends who dropped my off at the airport then kept my car for the week.  Thanks Crystal!  Logan flew standby and we luckily both got into Oklahoma City within like 15 minutes of each other.  Both of us were on different flights, but it was nice that we both made it. 

My mom picked us up from the airport.  My first sight of my mom!

Our first stop was Braums', of course!  Yum!!  I was a little disappointed that they messed up my order but it was ok once I started eating :)  Then we got ice cream.  YUM!!  I miss that place like crazy!

Next we headed to Christine's house.  Shawnee and Leah were there waiting for us too.  It FINALLY got to meet Leah.  She's sooo cute and such a good, quiet baby!  I loved holding her.  She was a blast!

I had fun with Stirling and Emmi too.  They are such fun, cute kids.  Emmi LOVED having me take her pictures and loved posing for them.  She's so cute!

Stirling was fun.  He even let me play video games with him.  I can't believe how big he has gotten!  He's already 8!  That's just crazy.  I remember when he was born and that seems like it was yesterday.

Here's a few more pictures of Leah:

A few days after I arrived, Jared and Karri finally made it up from Dallas.  We met them at a park and had fun playing with Darcy.  The only problem was that I didn't have my camera with me.  But here are a few pictures of Darcy from some time during the week.  She's getting so big and more and more like a little girl.  She's so adorable and so sweet!

I spent the week pretty busy.  It seemed that we were always going somewhere and doing something, but it was great.  I got to see a couple movies that I really enjoyed (the new Sherlock Holmes movie and Mission Impossible).  I also went to all of my favorite restaurants in Oklahoma (Braums, El Valquero and Ted's).  And I got to spend lots of time with my family including all my nieces and nephews.  I already miss them all so very much.  I was definitely not ready to go when the time came. 

This trip was a little different then past trips back to Oklahoma. As my mom is now an empty nester and everyone else has their own place in Oklahoma.  So it was just me staying at my mom's, which was great!  I got to spend some great time with her and David just chillin and relaxing.  Hopefully I can go back soon.  Love you all!
