Weekend Visitor!

A couple of weeks ago Colby came to visit us in Porter! (She beat Granddad to Porter!) It was a great weekend for her to come. The girls cheered at the football game, because they had clinic all week. Luckily Colby caught it on video for me! I barely got any good pictures of Maddie cause she was on the back row, the camera just wanted to put Kellyn in focus! They were so cute! Kellyn thought the clinic was really boring, and Monday I thought Maddie was going to cry cause she didn't have cheer practice anymore!

 On Saturday after resting up we went to the Pumpkin Patch at Livesay Orchard. Which is right around the corner from us. For $4 a person you can play all sorts of games and go on a hayride to one of the pumpkin patches. It wasn't real crowded cause we went later on in the day. Which is perfect since we only could stay about 1.5 hours since they closed at 5. The kids had been asking to go because we drive by it all the time. Now it's so busy there, everytime I drive by they're directing me to turn in. I try to avoid it, especially during the weekdays, in the mornings when the schools are there. So crazy! We are so glad Colby came to visit. We topped off her visit to treating her to a Mexican Lunch at Los Cabos, which I highly recommend!

Frozen on Ice!

When the Oklahoma State Fair announced Frozen on Ice would be coming I bought presale tickets. Feeling very on top of my game I purchased these tickets months ago.... When we lived in Newkirk, when we were staying in Newkirk....which is equal distance to OKC and Tulsa. When we moved to Porter there weren't many tickets left. So we made a little trip for our "surprise" for the kids after Cooper's soccer game. Since we get Tulsa local channels there wasn't a lot of Frozen on Ice commercials which allowed us to keep it a surprise. We got to meet up with David, Leslie, and Charlie for dinner at the fair! I had some yummy chicken and waffles, and fried banana pudding!

Then on to Frozen on Ice, which I think everyone was excited about (even Cooper had a good time, but you'd never get him to admit it!)

That last picture was taken after we left the gates to use the closest porta potty....and right before my
phone died. Luckily Jeremy was in line to pick up our stroller and I was able to text him where we were. He may have got the text, but he also may have forgotten which gate we came in. (The one closest to the arena!) So here are some valuable lessons to learn, and hopefully when you go to the fair you won't be waiting by the car for an hour!
1. Don't forget where you park.
2. Make sure both phones are fully charged.
3. At the fair gates your ticket can be scanned and it'll tell you where you came in.
4. Strangers in OK will be kind enough to let you borrow a phone....of course this is only helpful when the other phone is charged as well!
5. Bring 2 sets of keys to your car.
6. Stay together!
7. Don't forget where you parked. (I know I already said that, but it's probably most important!)

The best line of the night goes to Cooper, who was wearing his Batman shirt "Mom, if your phone was charged you could just shine the flashlight on my shirt and it would reflect up in the sky....then Dad would know where to come!" If only it was that simple!!!
