I have been married to my highschool sweetheart for 14 years. We were blessed with the birth our daughter and son on February 15th 2008. They were born 12 weeks early, but came into this world as fighters. This is the story of us being the best Mom and Dad we know how to be and raising 2 amazing children.
Hi all my bloggy friends!! Just wanted to share that I am taking a break from blogland. There are some things that need my undivided attention right now. I know I have been absent a lot here lately, but I still tried to keep up with my blog reading. Until next time...take care!!
We got Daddy a Macbook for his birthday...Nice is an understatement!! He was playing around getting familiar with all it can do and found out it has this funny program (I guess you call it that?) that takes pictures and distorts them. Here is Luke and mine's picture! It was called chipmunks, but to me we look like the WHO characters on "Horton hears a Who".
What do you think?!?! I know you are laughing with us and not at us, right!?!
Just incase you don't know what we look like I added the below picture! :)
This picture was taken Monday night at my in-laws house. Don't worry Miss Priss is just drinking root beer!
Daddy we hope your 36th birthday is a great one! Thanks for all you do for us! We love you very much!
What did she do....stuck her tongue out! Keep in mind I could not see her or the display on the iPhone when taking these shots!! updated- I really should have noted I was not driving while taking these photos. I was seating in the 2nd roll seats. M & L were in the 3rd seats.
When I viewed the second shot I saw she once again gave me a sticking out tongue shot! Silly girl!
I burst out laughing by the 3rd shot viewing, so at that point she thought it was a big joke!
I once again asked her to please give me a big smile! This time she hit the nail on the head! Sweet girl!
Bub gave me a smile on the very first request! Sweet boy!
Hope you all have a safe holiday weekend!! Take care!
This weekend we decided to take a short road trip to the Arbuckle Mountains...yes, you read that right. Oklahoma isn't all flat! Some may call them hills, but you get my point! ;-) Mommy forgot the real camera, so here is our trip in iPhone pictures.
Luke and Molly using the headphones on the way there.
We actually rented a nice A frame house overlooking Arbuckle Lake with a huge deck...only problem was the opening in the railing was way to wide for this mommy. The house also had one of those spiral metal staircases. My nerves would have been shot if we stayed, so I called the owner to see if she had anything else available. Thank goodness she had a log cabin close by. Of course it wasn't on the lake, but with this heat and drought nothing really is right on the lake, right ?!?!
Here is a picture of M & L enjoying the hot (cold) tub! They had a ball playing in there!
Our first adventure was Arbuckle Wilderness. It is a huge drive through animal park were you can feed the animals right out of your car window. I hadn't been there since I was a kid. M & L enjoyed it. The Zebra was my favorite!
Of course we stopped into the gift shop for a souvenir. L picked out a play set and M picked out a stuffed lemur with a baby lemur.
After picking out their souvenirs we walked over to a play area. They had fun playing on these motorized toys. :)
The next day we headed to GW exotic animal park. They have over 190 large cats. Most of those have been rescued from poor living environments. They also have bears, monkeys, birds, wolfs and lots more. They run strictly off donations. They strive to make the living environments as best as possible for the animals despite being caged up. You can tell it is their passion.
These cats are so pretty!
Cletus the camel! Luke thought he was pretty funny!
At the end of the tour we got to go into a petting area to play with the baby tigers. They were so adorable!! I wish they stayed small because I would so want one!
The playing turned a little rough when one tried to take my sons leg off!
So Luke made friends with this little wiener dog! A little more his size! So sweet!
We had a great time! It was way too hot, but we didn't let that spoil our fun! :) Have a great week friends!
