Today was bittersweet. After letting the kids loose in the candy aisle of Walgreens to pick out tons of road trip treats, we delivered those treats and some homemade cards to our dear friends, the Stockwells. We were so sad to say goodbye and will miss them dearly. Mason was especially sad today to say goodbye to his good friend Matthew and his second mom Katrina. We are so excited for them to be in their new home and new city! We are hoping to make a visit in September. After a sad start to the day we decided to drown our sorrows at the pool. A great morning of swimming at the Y cheered every one! Many friends were there and we all had a great time. The O'Neill's and Lewis' joined us for lunch at Megoburger, our new favorite burger spot in Ponca. In our super official, scientific taste test they were voted the best cheeseburger in Ponca City!
For about a year and half the kids have been begging to go to The Conoco Museum. I finally took them this afternoon. After a trip to the bathroom Missa yelled, "This place is fantastic!!". That is what I call a success.
From there we went to 5th Street Park after a stop at the grocery store for fudgesicles and water. A couple of hours later it was evident that everyone was getting tired (the moms too!) so we called it a day. Matt has taken the boys to play basketball at the church and the Miss and I are gearing up to make sugar cookies for the cookout on Sunday.
