We took a few trips to Oklahoma. Most recently (and by recently I mean like over a month ago) to Grand Lake for family lake trip. Now you have to remember that when I say family with my husband's side that means err-body. The Oklahoma family goes BIG, y'all. A small gathering would be us and his immediate family, a regular gathering is aunts uncles, cousins, grandparents. We were so nervous cause lately B's been really clingy around big groups (even family) but she did great!
We all had so much fun visiting with family, playing in the pool, eating, playing games together, snacking, going out on the boat, eating more, golfing, taking the kids on golf cart rides, celebrating birthdays and eating of course. Oh wait, did I already say that? We had the longest drive we've made with B at about 8-ish hours with stops and all. Thanks to the DVD player we got for the car, Brooklyn was a saint for most of the car ride. On the way home we stopped in a Lowe's to let her run out some energy. McD's playplaces just don't cut it.

We've taken several trips to the splash pad, the museum, and the park had cookouts and lunches and birthday parties with amazing friends from Lifegroup, have had Sunday dinners with my parents and my brother and his family, and have volunteered in the children's ministry on Sundays at church.
All in all it's been a wonderful summer!
