I will not sugar coat it. The flight was N.O.T. F.U.N. The airline was less helpful than I had hoped, the passengers were ruder than I expected, and my kids were even more demanding than I thought they would be. But, we made it here to Oklahoma safely, and we have had a great time so far.

|Ice cream cones with Mia at Brumbra's house. Does it get any better?|

Our second night: Tulsa Drillers!
It had the potential of being a very fun evening. Unfortunately, we waited 2 hours at the stadium before they finally called the game because of rain.
Downside: 2 restless, hungry boys
Upside: plenty of time for photo op with Buddy, the mascot for the Tulsa Library
Ironically, a gecko.
|Is that a Shaka? Where am I?|
|Loving spending time with this beautiful girl everyday!|

Meg, Tasha and their kids are in town this week, so we all joined forces at the Oklahoma Aquarium this morning. What a fun time! The exhibits were fascinating, and the Aquarium was the perfect size that we could see almost everything in a 2 hour time span.

I leave tomorrow morning at 7:00am for Girls Trip 2011. Wow. 5 days OFF? 5 days without changing a diaper? 5 mornings to sleep in? 5 days of strictly adult conversation? At Ocean Reef of all places, how did I get so lucky?
Who am I kidding? I will CRY and SOB on Monday when I see them again, like we've been apart 5 years!!
It's okay, I love my job.
By the way,
Scott + Ashley = 8 years today!
This is our first anniversary apart. :-(
Thank you, Lord for giving me Scott. He is more than I could have hoped for, and tons better than I deserve.
