Summer 2011

Grant "graduated" from the 3 year old class at Oak Hill United Methodist Preschool.

I tagged along with David to Los Angeles for a work trip the first weekend of June.

We had a great time and enjoyed looking at all the cool sites!

We had one last meal with our great friends, the Reaves, at Flores the week that we moved.

The moving truck arrived on June 14th to pack us up and move to Tulsa.

Boxes, boxes, everywhere! The house looked SO different with everything gone.......

The first week we arrived in Tulsa the boys and I got season passes to the Aqarium and the Zoo.

Needless to say we went alot and if you come to visit us, it is likely we will take you!

Over the 4th of July weekend we went to Arkansas because David had heard about the White River in Eureka Springs. We got a fishing guide ( a lady!) and all went for the morning. I didn't think I would like it much but it was so peaceful being in her boat early in the morning and it was quite chilly for the first couple of hours and we all caught alot of fish!

In Eureka Springs there is a train that takes you on a 1 hour ride through the woods and hills of the Ozark Mountains. The boys had never been on a train before so we thought it would be a fun experience. They let us all out half way and told everyone to put a penny on the track and the train would run over it and we could see what it does. Tate thought this was very cool but unfortunately Grant's fell off the track and we couldn't find it. He wasn't happy.

The highlight of our summer was Gulf Shores! We had so much fun with my family and our lifelong friends, The Mendrops. Alyson and I have kids that are roughly the same age and they play so well together, it is always so great to hang out with them. This is Grant and John Curtis probably trying to act out some sort of superhero stunt.

We went to Dallas one weekend and aunt Carol took us to the Lego Discovery Center.The last week of summer Tate went to Mimi and Daddo's church's Music Camp. He had alot of fun and at the end of the week they put on a musical for the parents. It was great!

Tate has been wanting a dog for some time so he finally got one for his birthday. Gracie is an 18 month old English Cocker Spaniel. We love her so much, she is so sweet and was a perfect way to celebrate the end of our Summer!
