No, I did not misspell Oklahoma, but according to Ellie, we went “Oklamahoma City” last month. Rather than let me go to a huge craft show by myself, Dustin thought he ought to accompany me along with the girls for a little weekend vacation. We really had a blast and I am now three for four on hotel stays. . .let’s not forget the hotel we stayed at for our honeymoon the day before we could start our stay at the resort!
We missed the Oklamahoma state line sign because Ellie was sleeping. Good thing Dustin’s coffee kicked in and we had to make a pee break at this lovely gas station. Such a wonderful idea to add a “Welcome to Oklahoma” sign at the entrance to the gas station. However, they seem to have forgotten the “ma” in “Oklamahoma.”
The girls big day with Daddy.
Emma the Mall Cop. . .I never did see that movie with Kevin James, but every time I see one of this ride-on-thingy-majiggies, I think of Paul Blart Mall Cop.
What a big girl!
Where’d she go???
Climbing to the top of the slide.
This was the three-story slide that Emma told me she was backwards, forwards, upside down and right side up. . .it was awesome! She added the sounds she made while going down the slide too. Dust said it was more of a challenge for him and Ellie and he more or less scooted a little, stopped, scooted a little more, stopped. I think his hips were a little too wide for the kids’ slide!
The tree house area of the museum.
This really put our Discovery Center to shame.
I think the girls were either flying to the moon or one of the planets. The space ship went up and down with the girls inside.
Emma listened to Mission Control while Ellie had a field day with all the buttons and no one telling her not to push them.
A little bit of unknown knowledge brought to you by Dustin and his camera.
While the girls and Dustin went to the museum, I Christmas shopped along with hundreds of other people. I even got a little “too many people in my personal space” feeling. Granted I got most of my Christmas shopping done, but I’ll only do that once a year.
I splurged and bought these dresses for the girls. The front has white and silver scroll designs with guitars. This is so my girls!
Enjoying a little Food Network before bedtime.
No amount of flipping on the lights and drying my hair and toilets flushing were going to wake up this tired Ellie Belle.
My goober monkies riding the luggage cart down to the car. Notice the very stylish headphones we “thought” were a good idea making a little quieter while the girls watched their movies and listened to their CDs. . .totally not the case. Apparently since they couldn’t hear themselves, they had to sing louder. . .so maybe we didn’t think that one through. . .
The little things in life that make children smile.
Yeah!!! Texas. . .wait, what’s with the wind. . .ohhh, we’re back in Texas. . .yeah.
Me and Dust.
