More of Oklahoma!

I did not expect it to take so long to post again but at least it was a little faster than past posts. Here are a couple more pics from our trip to Oklahoma. We went to the Wichita Mountains with my sister Alicia and my nephews Zach and Alex. We all had a TERRIFIC time!! If you have never been there, it is in Lawton, Oklahoma. You can see the highest mountain, Mt. Scott, from a while away, it is almost 1000 ft. Now I know if you are from just about anywhere but Oklahoma you are laughing pretty hard right now at me calling that a mountain but trust me, in Oklahoma that is pretty big! LOL! Okay now, on the way in Zach, my oldest nephew, was very adament about wanting to climb it so John took both Zach and Jacob to clib it. It took them longer than John anticipated but the did it. We were very proud of the boys, they did great! The mountain behind them is Mt. Scott.



















I hate that I do not have the picture if them at the top of the mountain but maybe I can ammend later. Since Alex has asthma and we did not have an inhaler, Alicia and I took Ben and Alex to climb Little Baldy, a very little mountain but to them it was big enough! Little Baldy is behind them in the picture.




















While we were there we also went fishing. Everyone caught fish, that were fishing. By the end of the day we were ALL sunburned and VERY TIRED! But it was all well worth it.

I'm Back!!!!!!

It has been way to long since Ihave updated my blog but I promise to do better in the near future. We just got back from a trip to Oklahoma visiting family. We all stayed very busy and had a great time!! One of the first things we did was take my nephews fishing. I was off taking pictures of Benjamin chasing geese so I missed Alex's fish (the first catch). But I did get Zach's picture and then some of the boys by the water.


We also went to the Science Museum of Oklahoma (formerly known as the Omniplex). EVERYONE had a great time there!! They had a "Science Live" show that was basically blowing things up and playing with fire, cool huh? The host was very funny, the boys, and John, mimic his "DUST OF DOOM" routine still. We watched an Ocean show in the omni-dome theatre, which is a huge circular screen that makes you feel like you are actually in the film, in our case it was the ocean, very cool! I also got pics of the boys in the same spot in the gardens that we took some about 6 years ago. I cannot wait to scrapbook the two together.



I am going to make this a "to be continued" so I do not overload my home computer if I get the chance to work on it there (dial up internet). I promise it will not be to long of a wait!!!
