The trip to Oklahoma with just me and the kids went fairly well. We had a few crazy days, like Shane regressing on potty training at the worst possible moments and Kevin tearing up Grandpa's garden and throwing the dirt in Brianna's face just when we were trying to load up to leave.
Overall, though, it was a lot of fun. We were able to see friends and family and enjoy some small town fun. We took trips to the park, swam in the lake, enjoyed library story hour, had a girls' night out, went to church, and had breakfast at the school so that we could see Grandma working in the lunch room. We even got to take a tour of the schools where Grandpa works as head of maintenance and see all the projects he's working on and those he's recently completed. Despite running out of pull ups, missing my turn onto I-70 and driving a couple hours out of my way, and Brianna getting hit in the head with a wooden swing that she fell out of, it was a good week.
