labor day weekend

Our weekend roadtrip got off to a rough start Friday. I can't decide which part was my favorite:

-broken cruise control
-broken visor driving into the setting sun
-Embry not feeling well
-bumper to bumper traffic for an hour... well past bedtime
-giving my daughter a pull-up to pee in, thanks to aforementioned traffic
-finding two untouched cheeseburgers in the backseat when we finally got to the hotel
-finding melted orange sherbet all over the car seat when we finally got to the hotel
-forgetting my camera

But thankfully, Saturday was a new day and my phone has a camera. After we dropped Daddy off for a 24-hour shift at the hospital, we explored the town's awesome park. We stopped by a gas station for a treat. I couldn't help but laugh at the sight of us... kids in their pj's picking out candy at 8 in the morning. Let's not even talk about what I looked like. :)

We spent the afternoon at the Sam Noble Museum. The kids loved it and I'm so glad Hayes finally got to go see the dinosaurs!

We picked Kyle up on Sunday morning. Poor guy saw a ton of patients and was exhausted. After a rest back at the hotel, we met Amanda, Clint and Emerson for lunch. It was the first time to meet Clint after all these years! Amanda, you did good. :) Sure wish we lived closer to you guys.

We came back home to my parents rockin' out the bathroom tile. It looks so good and I can't wait 'til everything is finished! Thank you guys so much for working so hard. What a gift!

5 tellin' me what I want to hear!:

I vote for the melted sherbet to be your favorite. At least you *found* the cheeseburgers...can you imagine what they would have smelled like in a few weeks? *gasp*

Agree...awesome for a phone camera!

YAY for road trips! You are one awesome momma to do that alone with three little people!

It was great seeing you guys! I can see Clint and Kyle exploring the great outdoors together while we shop and get pedi's. :0)

Glad you all had a good time inspite of all the frustrations (I can testify to the broken visor as I forgot it was broken and pulled it down and then had to hold it up till Kyle could snap back into place!).... Glad you liked the bathroom... your Dad did an outstanding job on it if I have to say so myself!!! OH HOW HE LOVES HIS GIRLS :o)

That is one of my favorite parks. Spent many many weekends there as a kid... Did you go to Arbuckle Wilderness too?
