Friends, Fish, Family = FUN with a capital F!

Just hitting the highlights here folks so excuse the brevity (but there are lots of pics)! Labor day weekend was all play and no work for us. Oliver had 2 birthday parties, we all went to the lake, and Matt and I even made it to an adult house party at the Gudgells like the good old days. Ahem, curse you Flip Cup. (The next morning reminded us that it is no longer the old days, but now the days in which we are old).

Next up, last weekend, Dad went off to Vegas with "other daddies" for their annual trip-o-debauchery (it gets milder each year for some reason. Oh yeah, it's cuz they're old and getting older). So, not to be outdone on the fun, Oliver and I packed up and headed down to Oklahoma City to meet Nana and Pa-Pa for a weekend of Zoo, Pool, and a Bricktown Boat ride. It was super fun but super hot. Oy vey, Mother Nature! I get it. You bestowed a blessed summer of mild temps upon us, and we were not grateful enough, so you are making us pay in September. Enough of the heat rash already! Digression.
Oliver and I also got to meet Cousin Evie Nagy for the first time - she's 15ish months now!

Moral of this past weekend: OKC is fun! And totally doable in a weekend. Drive on down and check out the action. You might even score yourself a Kevin Durant sighting! (I did not. BUT, I did see his new KD's restaurant in Bricktown. It's close to Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill. Not to be confused with North OKC's Wes Welker's Bar and Grill. No, I'm not kidding. If you're an anyone in Oklahoma = if you build it, they will come. And eat!)

Okay, so this pic may be a week older than Labor Day. But, it's the freaking cutest pic ever!

Wearing their OSU Orange to Waylan Roberts's 2nd Birthday Party at the Deanna Rose Farmstead in Overland Park. So much fun with the animals. 

Oliver caught his first fish at Deanna Rose! Heck, it might have been my 1st as well.

At the OKC Zoo. It's now ranked in the Top 5 zoos in the country. We were there for 3 hours and only made it halfway through! 

Nana and Pa-Pa were troopers in the heat! 

To say Oliver would not leave Pa-Pa alone in the hotel pool would be an understatement.

 Bricktown Water Taxi Tour.

 2nd attempt for a smile worked after he saw a big kid pose for a pic.

Great series of sculptures depicting the land run right off the Bricktown canal. More to be created to make it the largest scultpure series in the world, so we were told.
