Fast Trip to OKC

Friday night was another grand night scrapbooking and knitting with friends.  Our new favorite shop is part scrapbooking store and part knitting so really it's the best thing in the world for me.  I made some cards, then pulled out a sock I've started and did some knitting the rest of the evening.  Pictures of all coming soon.
While we were there I got a call about our planned weekend trip to OKC and after some conversations we were to be blessed with Loni and Brooklyn on our trip!  Keith, Lynne' and I had planned to make a day trip up so that Keith could work on a plumbing leak mom had.  So Saturday morning we packed up the truck and headed north.
Partway there we stopped at a McD to get drinks and let Brooklyn walk around a bit to stretch her legs.  She just keeps going and going and looked quite adorable in her little jeans.  Her legs are about a mile long and she's losing her infant baby looks.
She was also very fascinated by the big trucks that were idling in the parking lot next to McD.  Grandpa took her walking over there so that she could satisfy her curiosity.  I love this picture of the two of them holding hands and walking.
We were blessed with good weather and a safe trip.  We were able to see most everybody on Saturday, even it was for a very short time.  And mom can now take a shower without having a puddle in her bathroom.  Amen.  :)
"May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by His grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word." - 2Thessalonians 2:16-17
