Going to Oklahoma for Neil's farewell

At the beginning of our 20 hour trip to Oklahoma! Don't we look excited?!!!

At the half-way point in Limon, Colorado at the Holiday Inn Express.

We made it to Mounds, OKLAHOMA! It's midnight. Yikes that has to hurt, Julia!

So, Mom and Dad's dryer broke and we dried our clothes the old-fashioned way! ; )
On the way to Grandma and Grandpa Whittenburg's, we stopped to see this turtle in the road.

Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa Whittenburg with Julia
Cute baby Hugh with cousin Andrew Young.

Isaac, Neil, and Nicholas hanging out Sunday...

At the Oklahoma Aquarium, where we came across a 220-year old Alligator Turtle. It was so cool to see the Sharks get fed fresh fish too!

Nicholas, Hugh, and Eric measuring up to the Alligator Gar that lives in Oklahoma.

Hugh with Grandma Young: What a cute smile!

Hugh and Grandma Young:
If you chance to meet a frown, do not let it stay...
Quickly turn it upside down and smile that frown away.
We ate at Braums Ice Cream store a lot! We love that place! Eric is eating his as well as my ice cream cone! He loved the ice cream as you can see! Haha! He didn't like that I was filming him being gluttonous. : ) We think Braums should come to Utah! Yum!

Wow, 20 hours to OK! That is awesome you could drive home and see your brother's farewell and then trip to the MTC. He's a handsome one. How exciting for your family! I can't believe how big Hugh is. They sure grow fast. Happy 4th of July Stephanie!

How fun! I'm so glad you had a fun trip. The picture of Julia with her head tilted back is classic. It made me laugh out loud! You & your fam are so awesome and you are so witty!

Thanks for the note about the house. I can't wait to get in there and decorate!! You inspired me. :)
