We woke up in Oklahoma City.

On Day 2, we woke up in Okie City. After a delicious breakfast, we decided to stop at the Oklahoma City National Memorial. It was so serene and beautiful.

After we remembered and prayed for those who lost their lives & their families, we were on the road again to...

this lovely house...

More tomorrow. It has been a crazy week already. We are on day 10 of no refrigerator, a micro burst storm tore out our beautiful, large tree in our front yard, and several family health issues have kept me preoccupied.

A 17 day road trip

Involved alot of

Convenience store breaks.....New Mexico has KISS lottery tickets?

And this.

On our first day we pushed through to Oklahoma City. The kids were impressed that we drove through 3 states in 1 day. I'll try to post more later. The house needs some deep cleaning!

We are still on auto-pilot.

We are home safe and sound. So much to share! Like Lindsey's birthday...yes, she turned 8 the night before we left. And how well our children did on such a looong road trip....bribery wasn't even necessary! And how wonderful it was to see family...everyone was so warm and welcoming. Or how to have fun at Walgreen's at midnight...go with Lori! And how much we needed this vacation.....really, really, needed it! And how school started the day after we got back home....i know! I have a 1st grader, a 3rd grader, and a 10th grader....crAZY! Can't wait to tell you more, but the unpacking still continues!

Back home.

After a long, but surprisingly calm road trip...we made it. Back to my hometown. Everything is so lush, so green. I have missed it here. The internet access is spotty, so I will wait to give all the details when we get better service.
We are going swimming after our pancake breakfast...life is real good right now!
