Well before our Oklahoma family came, Lauren visited us from New Mexico. She arrived about an hour after I put the girls down for a nap. I knew Curly wasn't actually asleep so I took Lauren up to her room to surprise her. When she first saw Lauren she was speechless (very unlike Curly). Then she ran and hugged her and wouldn't let go for a while. It was very sweet to see. Aunt Lauren then joined us for an afternoon of pool fun. Her visit was short but fun. We look forward to seeing Lauren again in October.
Aunt Debbie and Cousin Tyler drove in from Oklahoma last Thursday. Curly was beside herself with anticipation for Tyler's arrival. Curly has had a very special place in her heart for Tyler her entire life. When she was younger she used to say "Tyluuur. Tyluuur. Tyluuur."whenever he was around. Just for dramatic's sake, Curly tends to act shy for a brief period of time when someone comes around that she has not seen in a while. She pulled this act on Tyler and Debbie. It didn't last long. We all quickly ventured into the back yard for a fun afternoon of play time. We enjoyed a nice relaxing time with Aunt Debbie and Tyler catching up, playing and of course watching the US Open.
Tyler showered us all with University of Tulsa gear. The Bear refuses to go to sleep now without her new Tulsa bear she has named "Goldie". We will all wear it proudly this fall while we cheer on your team Tyler!
Saturday we all went to the Fernbank Museum. We spent the day looking at dinosaur bones, geckos, a walk through time in Georgia and other cool exhibits. The girls got completely worn out and took great naps.
