Our friends came up from Dallas for the weekend. We have had 1 family of visitors before, but this was our first house stayers. So Mark and I each did our share of cleaning up Thursday to welcome Amy, Linda, Big D, and Darren & Tanya on Friday. They (and Mark) had big baseball plans that afternoon. They all made it back to the house that evening and the dominoes began. DOMINOES! It is certainly our favorite pastime.
Saturday morning we all went to the OKC bombing memorial. We have lived here for almost a year and have never been. It was beautiful and very moving. I remember it happening, but not being from here, you tend to forget about it, about how tragic it really was. I think the site really honored those people who lost their lives that sad day. If you are ever in OKC or just passing through, you must go visit.
After that, the gang went back for more baseball. I guess they did not get enough sun and beer the day before. They rejoined me that evening again for more fun and games. This time took it outside a bit for a round of boccie ball.
And inside a bit of Taboo!
And of course....
Monday I wanted to take a picnic to the lake. Couldn't quite convince Mark of that one, so we opted for the science museum instead. Love that place. I could spend hours there, and we will because it is just about too hot for the zoo now.
There is certainly something for everyone here
This used to be the world's largest indoor spiral slide
but the sign was gone
so I'm guessing it's not the largest anymore
But just ask Mark
it's definitely big enough
he was dizzy when he got down
and Christian had the drunk walk
Monday night we grilled burgers and ate the official summer fruit WATERMELON! And I had a relaxing evening while I worked on some of summer schedule plans. Got to keep those kids entertained!!! Mark finished up the laundry, did the dishes, and put the boys to bed. What do you think about that ladies???
Hope your weekend and kick off to summer was great! Thank you to all the soldiers and their families who do and who have sacrificed their lives for us! HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!
We are getting ready for more visitors today, Connor's buddy Ben from TX! More on that later.
