Great Weekend

We had a great weekend! Friday night we went out to dinner at Hideaway Pizza with the McBride's. This restaurant has become our favorite in the past month or so. The pizza is amazing! Luke also loves having Benjamin around to babble with :) After dinner, Ashley and I escaped for a bit and tried to see a movie. It ended up being sold out so we walked around the mall and enjoyed some frozen yogurt. We haven't had a chance to go out without the kiddos before so it was good to get to know each other a bit better and enjoy some girl time.

Saturday was a random day. I got up and went to the farmer's market. When I got home we decided to do a quick Target run. However, on the way to Target, we came across the "Touch a Truck" event. Of course we had to stop so Luke could touch all the trucks. Unfortunately I didn't have the camera so the pictures are still on Troy's phone but the pic below shows the plastic hard hat Luke picked up while we were there. He sat in a police car, police motorcycle and a fire engine, explored a mail truck, saw a dump truck and checked out a school bus. There were others although I can't remember them all. Let's just say that Luke loved them all!

Sunday was also a day spent with the McBride's and numerous other friends. We went to Tulsa for the day. Our first event of the day was attending the 11 service at our old church. It was so awesome to be back there. It really made me miss Tulsa and that church. It is a wonderful place and I think about it often. We caught up with some friends while at church and we sat with them and also had lunch with them. It was great to catch up with Zac and Kelley. After lunch we walked around Mayfest. We enjoyed all of the art and some tasty ice cream. We also were able to meet Emmy Sanders for the first time. She is the daughter of some other friends from Tulsa. It was good to meet her and catch up a bit with her parents.

The whole reason for our trip though was to see our good friend Erin belly dance at Mayfest. We were all very excited to see her dance. It was an awesome show and Erin is much braver than I. It was great to see her show off her moves! The unfortunate bit is that the show didn't start until 2:30 and by 3:15 Luke was toast! He was beyond exhausted as was Benjamin. We didn't have much time to talk with Erin and Darin but it was good to see them for a brief bit of time. I have to say too that Luke absolutely loved the music the ladies danced to. He was shakin' it pretty good and he received many comments from bystanders :)
