Tulsa Fun!

Two weekends ago, we went up to Tulsa for our college's homecoming weekend.  My parents came along also, with both of our cocker spaniels, so it made for a very full minivan!! =) But it was so much fun!  

Gene and Kathy were so nice to have us all to their home, and the boys, as always loved being at Mammaw and Pappaw's house! This time we had to do a bit of low 'fragile things' removal... we were afraid that the boys might do some damage!  But of course they had plenty of amazing toys for them to play with, including a fun wooden train set!  And, even though we spent a couple hours looking for it, somehow the locomotive to the set made it home with us to Texas... these boys are sneaky! =) We'll return it soon!

The boys could hardly wait for Mammaw to get it out of the box!
Even with all the great toys to play with, Will found the coolest new one... the kitty door.  And since they have no kitty, it became the Will's toys door! He couldn't seem to get enough of it!!

Even though we don't go to many of Homecoming events, we love going to the ORU basketball games. If we are in town during basketball season, we try to make the game!  Our whole little family was decked out in new ORU t-shirts, and boy did the boys love the game!  I thought since it began at what is usually their bedtime, we might make it to halftime.  But they made it the WHOLE game, and were super happy!  Will especially--he clapped and cheered and watched intently the majority of the first half!

The four grandparents were so wonderful to take turns holding the boys to!

It is so hard to get the boys still in a picture!!

After halftime, they play "Shout" and invite all the kids down to dance on the court.  It was our first time and we were so excited to take our boys down!  The following picture is kind of like a Where's Waldo... can you find us??

Here we are, trying to get a picture of us dancing... the boys were much more interested in all the other kids! =)

And a few shots right before we left with the Grandpas!

Thanks for a wonderful weekend, Gene and Kathy!!  Mom and Dad, it was so fun to have you guys with us!  Next year we'll have to do it again! Maybe we'll hit some more Homecoming events... since it will be our 10 year reunion!!  Can't believe it has been 10 years!
