Fourth of July Weekend

This year, we headed up to Justin’s littlest brother’s new place on Oologah Lake. His whole family was there and we had such a good time relaxing, swimming, eating, playing cards, and just being together.

Justin and I are finally learning to play guitar after only having my guitar for 8 years now.

And their backyard has a (very steep) stairway that leads right down to the lake, so the kids wanted to swim all weekend.

Justin set up the slack line and of course the kids had to try it out. He is still pretty awesome on it. Sad I didn’t get a photo of him.

Monday morning, we headed to Tulsa to get my Grandma and then Talala to see my cousin. They only live 15 minutes from Curtis. It was so great seeing her and her family, and my Grandma too!

Dropping Grandma off and a photo on her porch was a must. She has lived here for 52 years and is about to sell her house and move to a smaller place. Very bittersweet, as lots of memories were made here!

We stopped by a firework tent on the way back to Oologah and you just couldn’t hang.

The kids got to stay with Mammaw and Grandpa and will be at their house the rest of the week. I bet they are having the time of their lives and of course I already miss them like crazy!!
