Family Time = Fun Time

Tonight is my last night in Tulsa. My daughter and I joined my son here (at my mom's house) in the middle of the week. Last weekend, when she was at my home celebrating her birthday, and my son's birthday...they left together to come to Tulsa for a little Grandma/Grandson time. (yes, my 22 year old son STILL comes to spend a week with his grandma!) On Wednesday, my daughter and I drove up to spend a few days and here it is, Saturday night already. Three of us will drive back to the Dallas area tomorrow so that we can spend the day with my wonderful hubby - the GREAT father that he is.

My plans were to post my regular posts while I was here, ABC's of the word, Random Acts of Poetry, Friday Fill-Ins, etc, and this is my first time actually sitting down at the computer. So...I guess I took a technology sabbatical, with the exception of a few twitter updates.

My 365 project awaits my return (I forgot the cord to upload photos) and I will say right now - I am going to have a very difficult time narrowing it down to one a day! We have enjoyed a lot of fun while we were here and even though I did not take a photo every time I had the opportunity, I still have tons of photos that I can't wait to share.

In the meantime, I thought I would check in real quick and just say hi! I have included a fun photo of my mom, my beautiful niece (who turned 4 years old today!) and my son and daughter. We were at 5th Night, an event held at Utica Square, that has become a Tulsa tradition. Utica Square is an outdoor mall that is blocks from where I grew up and I love, love, love bringing my children to the same places that I enjoyed as a child myself. There is something deeply satisfying about passing these things along to my kids...the love of music, dancing, summer nights spent outdoors with others...community, meeting new friends and reacquainting with old ones.

So, tomorrow we travel. I have much to think about as my mind is filled with stories, thoughts, and pictures of time in Tulsa with my family.

Missed everyone, and I can't wait to catch up!
