Let the Celebrations Begin!

Last Friday our family journeyed to Tulsa, Oklahoma. The purpose of our trip was to take Jaime and Maya Brown to the airport, and then enjoy family time before celebrating Katherine's birthday with grandparents, Roy & Faye Banks, on Saturday. After we said our goodbyes to Jaime and Maya we headed to Woodland Hills Mall where we would meet up with some friends before all going to dinner. That evening we checked into our hotel and then went swimming. After a really long day the kids and their mom were ready for bed. Wes stayed up and did a little blogging. What a surprise!

Saturday morning brought another special treat...Krispy Kreme doughnuts!

We enjoyed our breakfast, gathered our things, and checked out of the hotel.

When we arrived at grandma and grandpa's in Muskogee they were anxiously awaiting our arrival. Wes, the kids, and I changed into clothes for the lake and headed out once again. At the lake we celebrated Katherine's birthday on grandpa's pontoon boat. Grandma and grandpa had purchased blow up bumper boat for the kids. Katherine and Sebastian had a terrific time playing in these. The bumper boats squirted water which added to the fun! Katherine and Sebastian also took a ride on the huge lily pad with Wes and I on either side of them. Sebastian was enjoying the ride so much he had fallen asleep until grandpa splashed a wave of water on us. I don't know whether me pulling Sebastian up so the water didn't drown his face woke him up or the water splashing on top of him. Either way he was no longer sleepy and wanted off! Katherine wasn't detoured from riding at all. She rode with us for a while longer. We had a great time!

"Cool, another bath toy!"

"This is good."

Katherine got squirted in the eye by Sebastian.

Sebastian is at it again! This time dad is the target.

"This is awesome! Who's next?"
