Happy Wednesday, friends!
I hope all is well with you. With us — it’s good! I have a few fun surprises up my sleeves that I’ll share with you guys soon enough!
Anyway… life lately — we got our car back (forever ago, I just forgot to tell you guys). Read all about the issues here. It ended up being something about 2 gaskets where there should’ve been one and some sensory something… I’m not entirely sure — I know it ended up costing us like $900. Ugh, right?! But it’s running better than ever (hopefully I didn’t jinx us by saying that).
Next order of business: Summer vacation…. oh my goodness, these poor kids are going stir crazy between summer vacation and being mid move in Oklahoma without any of our stuff or space. Don’t get me wrong, they’re having a total blast and love spending time with their grandparents but every now and again they get a bit attitudey with me and each other.
David too. (ha)
We’ve been in Oklahoma for 3 weeks now and have about 4 weeks to go still. It’s really weird being all out of our element but at least it’s with family that tolerates us. *wink*
We made a trip up to the Oklahoma City Zoo! That was neat. The kids had loads of fun even though it was HOT, HOT, HOT! More on that later.
We did a trip to this lake over on Fort Sill! The kids loved that! It was a little beach (because it had sand – haha). And we drove up to the top of the Wichita mountains! That was cool! Such a pretty view from the top!
We did a family BBQ at David’s grandparents house for Father’s Day and then again for the 4th of July and then went to the next town over to see the fireworks! The kids loved it! They even got to play with a turtle (they’d apparently had turtle races earlier that day)! Fin even picked it up and held it which is HUGE for Fin since he’s a sensitive little worry wart.
Please excuse my blogging slowness. Internet here is definitely not the fastest/best. It’s a small town, very very small… I’m talking full of dropped calls and tons of “No service” spots. It’s so foreign to me. They have cable though which is super weird for the kids. Fin didn’t understand why he couldn’t just start Teen Titans Go from the beginning again. They also want to buy all the things seen in commercials.
So yeah…. that’s my life lately.
What’s new with you guys?
