Mini Vacay

Since Mama got all knocked up and had some issues, we don't get to take a big vacation this year =(. But I have some energy back and I wanted to do some fun things with the kids this summer that were not too far or long. The perfect opportunity came about this weekend! Our best friends that live in Bartlesville, OK, Travis, Erin and Owen's girlfriend Emma, just had their new baby boy this past week, Sam! So we loaded up Friday night after Shane got home from work and drove over to OK and stayed the night in a hotel to see the new baby. The kids had a blast! As you know, Claire is an old pro =) at staying in hotels, but Owen was a newbie and was literally bouncing off the walls, even at 12am!! Here are a bunch of pictures from our short trip...

Claire and Owen in their pjs at the hotel Friday night!


Owen taking it all in....and jumping on the bed =) Claire being goofy...The next morning...I had already bought baby Sam tons of gifts so I wanted to bring something to Erin. So Mom made me this fabulous container and I filled it with some oil and lotion (coconut scent mmmmm) and of course a bottle of Cuervo Gold Margarita =)!!The kids actually slept in and we did not have time for breakfast!! So we headed over to the Perry's for a cookout and some baby time!!! Claire with Sam! He was 9lbs 2oz!!! He is a big boy and super cute!! This made us all so excited for Bree!!Claire and the new big sister Emma checking on baby boy...Owen was not too interested, just every once in awhile he would say "Where baby?" If you look closely you will see that I gave that awesome head of hair a mohawk =)
Shane and Travis took the kids to a fun park that afternoon... Before we left to come back to AR, we had some ice cream cones!!We had a great trip and the kids did really well!! We are going to try to do a few more things like this before August!! Hope you had a great weekend!!!

What a beautiful baby. I think Sam looks like Emma, especially in the close up picture of him in the swing.
