Catch Up

We have had a fun and busy month. I am so behind on blogging and I have had a request to update more often. To start off this month, my best friend was here visiting from Germany. Her and her baby (who is now almost 11 months old already!!!) came mid-April and her husband came around the first of June. We "met" when we stepped off the plane in Okinawa over 3 years ago!! She grew up in the same town I did so when we said goodbye in Okinawa over 2 years ago we knew we would still see each other again. They asked Dustin and I to be Godparents to their sweet little girl and we attended her baptism at their home church. The next evening we had them over for dinner (I made indian tacos - the cultural food!) and we had a yummy cake from Johnson's bakery.

A few days later, on the 9th, we celebrated our anniversary (4 years!). That day was also Dustin's change of command. After the change of command ceremony we had Billy Sim's BBQ cater lunch for everyone. I am not a fan of BBQ but Billy Sim's is the one place that I actually like to eat on occasion. We also heard they are putting one in just about 2 miles down the road from us. The following Saturday we headed to OKC for a nice lunch out and some fun at the science museum (check back in a day or two - I have a post coming on that!).

Father's Day weekend was spent on a Chaplain's retreat. We headed to Grapevine, TX (about 3 hours from here) and stayed at the Gaylord Texan. We had a really nice little weekend and enjoyed some time at the pools (and at the mall!).

This past weekend was the first weekend this month that we didn't have plans on Saturday. We ended up taking a drive to see some of the damage from a big fire that started on a range on post and caused a small town to be evacuated. We also made a stop at the Redbox for a movie to watch. Sunday we headed back to OKC for the Barnum & Bailey Circus! Grace loves anything to do with the circus (especially clowns that can juggle) so when we heard they were going to be nearby we knew we had to go.

And during the week this month we have spent a lot of time at my parents' house enjoying their new pool. I think Grace's favorite things to do are 1) Swim in Grandma's pool and 2) Go to Nations of Fun with Grandma. Grace is turning into a little fish (and getting a nice little suntan!) I have a couple of posts scheduled this week about some of the fun we have been having so be on the lookout!

Well.... some of Grandma's favorite things to do are swim with Grace and go to Nations of Fun and play with Gracie. So, I guess it's good that we both enjoy the same things! :-)

And in just a little while, Olivia & Brilyn will be able to join us and do all of those big girl things, too. But, let's not rush that. Babies aren't little long enough as it is.
