The Move

We made it! Here's a run down of our trip!

By the way- the formatting is royally screwed up and I couldn't figure out how to fix it so things line up right and the pictures are centered like they usually are. Darn blogger. Maybe next time I'll have more time to mess around with it.

Justin's coworkers threw him a little surprise going away party. Somehow everyone managed to keep it a secret (even me!) and it really meant a lot to Justin that everyone pretended to be sad to see him go. Hahaha.

We stopped in Oklahoma to visit some family. The first pictures are from when we saw Great Great Uncle Pat and Great Great Aunt Bobby, and Cousin James in Broken Arrow.

We made a little side trip over to see Justin's Mom's and Sister's graves.

We stayed in Guthrie, OK with Uncle Mark, Aunt Jennifer, Tyler, Brandon, and Leah. It was a ton of fun, and we finally were able to go back to the mexican restaurant that has the best queso dip in the world. It was awesome. And we managed to escape without playing any Yugio, much to Brandon's dismay. We're really hoping that the boys get to come visit out here next summer!

Our next stop was to Broken Arrow to Grandma Phyllis and Grandpa Jim's house. We loved getting to spend time with them, and Grandma Phyllis made us lots of yummy food. Ollie had tons of fun playing with the balls she gave him, and in the back yard. We even got to meet the neighbors pet turtle. Ruby was itching for some turtle soup, but luckily he got away.

We saw Grandma Helen and Uncle Jamie and Aunt Lisa while we were there too! It was really great to catch up with everyone and let them meet Ollie.

Last, we stopped in to see the Housewrights in Missouri!

Ollie fit right in.

They have tons of animals, including cows, a cat, dogs, a horse, and lots more cows. Ollie was in heaven!

Brody showed us how to handle the animals.

I was a little freaked out by the huge eye balls.

It was SO GREAT to see them, and we can't wait to go back as soon as we can!

Now we're here at home in Harpers Ferry, and we've gotten settled in for the most part. Justin has started his job, and is excited about it, eventhough he's just been in training for the last week. I have lots more pictures to post, so hopefully I'll be able to get back on the blogging bandwagon and get them on here soon!

I love the big eyes! What great pictures! Ollie is just getting to be such a big boy. And now you can cross "moving back east" off of your list on the side!
