Day Two

We left early enough on this day to make it to Norman by lunchtime. We did forget the diaper bag in Tulsa, though. We made a quick stop at Love's to get diapers and wipes and then it was off to meet my dad, stepmom, and little brothers Sam and Joe at Cocina de Mino. Norman, OK has the best restaurants. I miss that. Lincoln, even though it is at least twice as big as Norman, does not have near the quality (and probably quantity) of restaurants as Norman. Could it be that I just haven't found them yet? I doubt it. We ate well.

Then, we headed out to the ranch. We spent most of our time outside. The kids loved the trampoline and all of the animals. Great grandpa Charlton was out on the tractor. It was too loud for Caleb to ride on it, but he was willing to snap a few pictures for posterity. What a good boy. Eva was in hog heaven following around all of the dogs and going out to see the horses. She is quite the animal lover. Caleb is a little more timid around them. I sure don't blame him!

Sam, the oldest of the boys, is so much like I am---to the point of annoyance. He loves being smart and playing games. He doesn't care to be outside to much and he knows everything.

Joe is more like my younger sister, Lisa. He's got a good heart, loves his animals and enjoys spending time outside.

Both of the boys did a great job of taking care of the kids. They played well and I rewarded them with a couple of bucks each for a job well done.

We had an excellent visit but around 6pm, we packed up and headed back for Tulsa. Eva hadn't taken a nap all day and she was asleep in the car by the time we made it to the interstate (maybe 1 mile?).


  1. Such cute children! Funny about your little brothers - how things run in families.

  2. Cute pictures! Mckenzie misses her friends and I do too.

    I agree with you on eating out in Lincoln. Christiansburg has more places to eat and it's about 1/4th of the size of Lincoln.

  3. It looks like you had a great time! I sat here trying to think of great restaurants in L-town and didn't get very far. Have you tried Lazlo's or Fortune Palace?

    Those are my favorites... besides the occasional infamous Runza, of course!

    **Disclaimer... I'm not in anyway trying to defend Lincoln for having great places to eat. These are just my favorites.

    BTW... when are we going to get a Cafe Rio. SERIOUSLY!!
