We Survived!

Steven and I successfully made it to Arkansas for the family reunion! It was definitely a long trip!!! We were unable to leave until after work on Friday so we didn't get to the resort until about 12:30 am. Needless to say we were exhausted and definitely not ready to make the drive home come Sunday morning. It was extremely hot but we had a fun time catching up with family and seeing relatives we don't get to see too often!

The Feisals

While we were gone Carson stayed with my mom and dad. He always has an absolute blast at their house. They live on 40 acres and have fun horses, cats, and various wildlife for him to spend his time chasing. Carson has ALWAYS hated the water. He wouldn't get close to the water at the lake and he absolutely hates getting a bath. It seems with all the heat we have been having he decided the water might not be too bad while at my parents house.

(I can't figure out why this picture is so small :()
Needless to say we will definitely be purchasing a puppy pool for our backyard. Last night we were visiting some friends and hanging out at their pool and he decided to take a dip. He quickly panicked when he realized he couldn't touch the bottom and swam to the side!

This weekend I will be heading to Tulsa! My friend Casey who was actually the Matron of Honor in our wedding is expecting Baby #2 aka Max sometime around July 27th. We are so anxious for his arrival!! McClain turned one this past January and absolutely stole my heart.....and Steven's :)! It will be great to spend time with Mc and his momma before he becomes a big brother and she becomes a mom of two!

Sweet McClain the day he came home from the hospital!

Taking a snooze last summer in the car!
Learning to crawl!
This summer at the Zoo with his family!

I am very excited about this weekend and patiently awaiting Max's arrival! Mc I know you will be a GREAT big brother!

Bachelorette Party Fun!!!

Back in April we celebrated one of my last nights out as a single lady so I thought I would share some pictures!Bridesmaids!

Getting ready to open gifts!

We enjoyed a yummy dinner at 1492!

Then it was off to Nonna's!

We then headed to Brix where we happened to run into Mark Clayton!

It was so great to be able to spend some time with my favorite ladies before the big day! We all had a blast and some of my bestest friends were able to travel in from out of town to help me celebrate!

Family Reunion Weekend!

Tomorrow at 5 pm we will be heading to Heber Springs, Arkansas where we will be spending the weekend at The Red Apple looks SO adorable online! We can't wait it should be a fun weekend spending time and catching up with family!

We've both had a busy week at work so we are looking forward to relaxing! However, we are not looking forward to the 5 1/2 hour drive!!!

The high school reunion was an absolute blast and it was so great to see old friends and catch up on their world! Steven's high school reunion is in a few more weeks and he still hasn't decide whether he wants to go or not :). We will see what he decides my decision was a no-brainer!

Hello Weekend!

This weekend is the first of many busy weekends to come! Tonight we are having dinner with great friends at Toby Keith's in Bricktown. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for us to enjoy the patio!!! Tomorrow morning is the beginning of a day full of festivities for my 10 year high school reunion....gasp. I feel so old! We start with a picnic and lots of games for everyone with kiddos then end the evening at the Coca-Cola Events Center!

When we graduated in 1999 we were the largest class to ever graduate from Yukon. I have been on the reunion planning committee and I am surprised at the lack of people attending this years event. Regardless, it should be great to catch up with old friends and see what everyone is up to these days!

As I said this is just the start of a few busy weekends! Next weekend we are off to Arkansas for a Feisal Family Reunion, Tulsa for one of my best friends baby shower, lake trip for 4th of July! I love summertime and all the activities it brings!!!!
