So this is what 500 miles...8-ish hours...with two kids under 5 looks like...
Crossing the Red River...only 7+ hours to go!
Where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain.
No tears yet. Reid's scarce moment of contentment and Audrey in her perpetual state...watching a movie on the DVD player...thank you, Stankowskis!
He drove almost the whole way there and back...such a sweetie.
First pit stop: Super Target in Norman.
Finally! Almost there.
The most popular spot at Aunt Betty's. Audrey and her cousin Kamryn.
Audrey and Kamryn again!
Another popular spot: the porch swing. Amazingly enough, it wasn't too hot the first day.
At the motel...early in the morning. After playing so hard during the day, Audrey actually slept in!! A major feat.
He was throwing rocks so cutely until I got the camera out...then he just got mad.
So...what do you think about this thing they call "reunion"?
There's a picture I would have liked to have inserted here but it's against Mennonite beliefs...I think. We went to a Mennonite bulk food store. So quaint. The young woman behind the counter was just beautiful in her Mennonite garb. It felt like going back in time. Though I hardly said a word, I felt so loud and obnoxious in my modern clothes. There was just something quiet and graceful about the clean white bonnet and perfectly pressed periwinkle dress. Wish I could have had a picture of it!
Instead, I have a picture of my mother-in-law and sister-in-law at Mr. Ed's drive-in...the next best thing! I am privileged to have a wonderful family-in-law!
The real reason we made the trek out to Missouri...Grandma. She's 88 years old and loves Jesus.
Freedom Baptist Church...that church I was talking about in the previous post. Their high attendance Sunday was minus the Chandler family...so sad.
