First we will go visit The Jonas Bros for a special little concert at the Ford Center in OKC
We will be staying in Bricktown, an area of the city that has been re-invented and is wonderful! We haven't been in several years so I am excited to see what has been added since our last visit. Here is a pic from Bricktown looking toward the Ford Center. We will be about 2 miles away from the concert. I have heard the traffic to a JB concert is terrible so we may have to hoof it back to where Uncle Joe will be chillin' by the pool at the hotel. I don't think he will have missed us much. :o)
Next day we will be visiting with our friends who live in the area. lesliereid, and The "H" family. That should be great fun. We all have two children so they should be occupied nicely to allow us to visit for a little while after dinner. Leslie has opened her home to all of us and all our silliness. I am not sure she is fully aware of what she has done. Shhhhh don't tell her either. :o) Let's just see what shenanigans come up. hahaha!!
I am making some yummy cookies to take to the party. I know I will have time to make them it is just concerning to me that they will be within close proximity to me and my family for over 24 hours and we will not be able to eat them! What torture! Oh well I'll do it for lesliereid. ha!
Early Thursday we will be heading out to Chicago....the real adventure! It will be just fun to be in such a huge city. I wonder if people will be able to tell we are tourists? I promise I won't wear a fanny-pack. (like i really need any more attention in that region.haha)
We will also be meeting an fellow blogger, Seeker, and her family. we will be attending the aftermath of her grand-daughter Ella's first birthday party. Just in time for the sugar rush to wear off from all the icing the babies will be eating. I can't wait to hold them....all of them!
I am sure I won't sleep a wink tonight. The day before vacation is like the day before Christmas when you were a kid isn't it??
Have fun and we will be checking in when we can. Please pray for our safety and that I won't have to hurt Uncle Joe for pinching my legs. (He loves loves loves to pinch the soft inside of my thigh when we drive. He is so naughty and annoying, but I think I'll keep him. He is kinda cute and his lips are soft.)
