~ Tulsa Zoo ~

Friday, Terral took the day off of work so we ventured to the Tulsa zoo.

The boys had never been and it was the perfect day. We dressed in long sleeves and took coats in fear of cool temperatures. By the end of the day, we were rolling up our sleeves. They boys had layered, so they were able to take their long sleeved shirts off.

Here are T and the kids aboard the train. Jasper enjoyed his little ride.

I wish Jasper would have been looking at the camera. It would have made this picture so much better. Look at that smile!!!

Here they are posing in front of the elephant. I think that was the elephant that is 63 years old!! Wow!!

I just love giraffes! Such unique creatures!

You can't really see the zebras that well here. The kids wanted me to take pictures of all the animals. I did not get them all though!
After we ate lunch, the kids played on the playground at the zoo. There were several pieces of equipment for them to play on. Lauren is so good to jump right in and play with them. She loves her brothers!!
The boys liked the petting zoo. There were mainly goats. Actually, I think that was all there was to pet. Luckily, we got out of there without the goats eating our clothing!
The monkeys were my favorite! Terral's too! We could have just sit and watched them for hours. They are fascinating. The kids thought they were funny too!
Hudson's favorite was the tiger and the lion.
Lauren's favorite were the penguins. They were really cute. We liked watching them swim around.

After the zoo we headed to Braums for ice cream and then hit the road.
It was such a great day!!
It is not too often we all five are together. I am glad we took advantage of our time and took a little trip. Did I mention it was mine and Terral's

Happy Anniversary Babe!!!

~ Spring Break Fun ~

Spring break has come and .....gone!!
There was loads of fun to be had...

On Wednesday, we headed to the McDaniel's farm...
It was like a carnival.

Here is Blaze enjoying his cotton candy.
Isn't he a doll?
Sweet Mrs. Kerri making the cotton candy.

Hudson thought it was so cool to be at someone's house and get cotton candy, not just at the fair!

Some of the kids waiting to go down the water slide.
It was the perfect day for it too. Well, it was a little windy, but it did not stop the kids.

Then they got out the water balloons.
Hudson really enjoyed that too. He loved being with the big boys.

I did not see Lauren that much. She was on the waterslide most of the time with Hadley and Paige. Though, when it was cotton candy time she was all about it!

Thank you McDaniel's for the great day of fun!!
It was awesome!!
We can not wait until next year!!

~ Shout out to Dad ~

I just love this picture and these boys so much!!
Jasper has become quite the little picture taking man.
Hud and J LOVE their daddy sooooo much!!
Terral is a wonder father and husband.
I am proud to call him my husband!!
He is such a hard worker and has a genuine heart that is full of love.
He is constantly searching for ways to help people.
I hope our children learn from their daddy and have a passion for Christ and people as much as he does!!

I love you Terral!!!

~ Big Helpers ~

He was posing for me and saying "cheese".
Terral's parents have been doing some backyard makeovers. They have really come a long way on their yard. Terral and the boys went over the other day to help Grandpa put part of the fence back up. They really enjoyed themselves.

They were big helpers. Terral let Hud hammer in some real nails and he thought he was big stuff.

I love that T spends time with the boys and teaches them "manly" things. J and Hud really love their dad and love spending time with him.
I just don't want my boys to grow up too fast!!

~ King and Queen of Hearts Ball ~

On Febrauary 12th, Lauren had her last cotillion session of the year. She had a wonderful time participating and is excited for next year!

I really love how Mrs. MaryAnn included the parents during several occasions. She did a terrific job with the students.
Here is the 5th grade Westwood crew.

At the last cotillion session, each student voted for a king and queen for their grade.
The 2nd runners-up for 5th grade were Blake Bartlett and Blakely McEvoy.
The 1st runners-up were Elliot Gross and Lauren Meeker.
The King was Zane Harmon and the queen was Sarah Beth Moore.
Lauren was so excited!! I was so proud of her.
I just can not believe Lauren is in 5th grade. The time is really flying by.

Lauren is so great with her brothers. They adore her and she does them as well.
