Glenpool Days

In June we attended the Glenpool Days events.  Glenpool is the suburb that we moved to in Tulsa.  It is a very small surburb and very rural.  Here are the kids on one of the three rides that they chose to go on.
It really would not be a fair without good food and we were not disappointed.  Sawyer chowing down on a funnel cake and Julia enjoying a new favorite of hers, navajo taco.
Ryan being himself, covering his face since I want to take a picture.  I have seen many pictures of Dennis like this as a young boy, I wonder where Ryan gets it from????  Ryan really does not like fair food all that much, but settled on this pretzel, which was stale and gross.

There are way to many things that Dennis and I both love at fairs,but this time we chose a navajo taco, funnel cake and yummy rootbeer to share. Kids take the best pictures, don't ya think?
We also attened the parade and I will just tell you that the looks on the kids faces pretty much sums up the quality of the parade.  LAME-O!!!

Tulsa Zoo

We took a trip to the zoo one day with all five of us.  It was a hot day, but we wanted to check out of new zoo.  We spent some time in the indoor living museum and then watched the alligator feeding.  We also visited a Cosby Jello taveling exhibit.  All the kids had their giggles recorded for the Jello commercials.  The only hard thing is that it is very hard for kids to giggle on demand.  Lets just say I've heard them giggle a lot better.  It was a good trip, but I am sure we will enjoy the zoo more when it is not so hot!!

Good bye

The house was empty, clean and ready for the new owners.  Our moving truck was on the way to Ok.  Our neighbor was out saying good bye and snapped this last picture of us in front of our home in Tomball, TX.  It was a sad day, but a good ending to a great time in TX.

More lovely beach time!!!

Julia and Sawyer spent a lot of time building a water slide. 
Julia was the construction manager, so she had Sawyer going back and forth getting water from the ocean while she did the design and buliding.

Here is Sawyer testing out the water slide they made. It did not work as well as they thought that it was going to work, but they had a lot of fun

Dennis and Ryan spent a lot of time playing in the waves.  The wave do not get very big, so the boogey boards do not work all that great, but they are good floating devices out in the deeper area.
When Ryan is not in the ocean with Dad, he is looking for creatures and treasures.
We found sting rays again this time.  We had a net and so everyone wanted to be our friends and play with our net.  We did not care, and Ryan enjoyed having older kids to play with. 
Just a few awesome pictures of the kids.  I love beach pictures!!!!

date night

This particular week, it was Julia and My date night.  We decided to get a pedicure.  This was Julia's first time and she was way excited.  She picked out some crazy colors and had it all mapped out what she wanted the lady to do.  Her concoction= purple toe nail polish with orange flowers, with red centers.  The lady looked at her like she was crazy and told her it would look better if she swapped the orange flowers for white ones.  She was ok with that when she saw the "sparkly" red centers she was going to get.  She did think that it took a little to long.  Next time, I will just get her nails painted, since that is really all she wanted. 
Our pretty toes!!!!!
