The Rains Came Down and the Floods Came Up . . .

There are so many great things about living in Oklahoma. Sometimes, I think I could just live here forever because I have loved it so much. But then we have a day like this, and I am ready to go running for the hills. Already this month, Oklahomans have endured two F4 tornadoes, a multitude of tornado scares, and a thunder storm that produced hail the size of softballs.

This week, I learned to take flash flood warnings very seriously. The rain was literally as if God opened the sky and dumped a lake. In a matter of minutes, the roads became gushing rivers complete with fan boats sent to rescue the idiots who thought they could drive in it. Idiots like us. I'm just thankful we made it home safely.

Memorial Day Weekend 2010

Having a little BBQ after some hard-core slip-n-sliding. I love these faces!!!

I gave these two matching buzz cuts. Amos had to be just like his dad. Sorry Tish, they wanted to go super bald just to annoy you.

Lyra has really taken a liking to her Papa Lee. Or as she calls him, "Pa-lee."

Kolby enjoyed his time in the sun. The hat was a must. That bald head hasn't seen the sun for months!

June may be wearing her water wings in this picture, but she's getting pretty serious about learning to swim without them this summer. She's got the underwater motions down, it's just difficult for her to realize she can come up and take a breath of air between strokes.

Winn is our little fish, as usual. Her number one complaint of the summer: Having her dirty, chlorine-soaked hair brushed when she gets out.

Sporting our Sunday best. It looks like I'm hiding walnuts in my cheeks. Thanks Klive.

The girls look so cute in these dresses. And Kolby is always my most handsome!
