We started our summer road trip stopping at Uncle Terry's house in Fort Worth. His neighborhood feels like stepping back in time because of the clothes lines and 1950's flare.
It is always good to see John's Uncle and Aunt. They are so hospitable to our family. We enjoyed a yummy breakfast, soccer in their backyard, and chocolate cake.
From our early morning walk around Terry's.
We then traveled on to OKC to visit the Gregory clan. Singing scripture power with Grandma and baking with the easy bake oven.
Swimming in Uncle Seth's pool.
Oklahoma sunsets can compete with the Bahamas!
Our day at the zoo with Aunt Catie and cousins.
These two remind me of the old fashioned girls in the photos.
The kids always have fun at Grandma's house!
One evening we went kayaking on Uncle Seth's lake. Here is cousin Jake out fishing.
We spent lots of time playing outside. Grandma Gregory bought a beach cruiser bike that we all took turns riding. We also enjoyed visiting with Nan.
Grandma Gregory's and Nan's new dog, Clyde.
We spent the latter-half of the week at Keystone Lake where we rented these comfortable cabins.
There were 13 cousins total. So many playmates!
A friendly game of horse shoes.
Uncle Jay and Uncle Seth. John's brothers always hide from the camera.
We all took turns with meals. My sisters-in-law are great cooks!
Such good cooks, we had to take a lot of walks to work off all the good food we ate.
The Gregorys on parade.
We didn't do a lot out on the lake because of dangerous flood levels but we enjoyed some superb sunsets, s'mores, and watching fireflies.
We are so lucky to have such a great extended family that is just a day of driving away. And Oklahoma is a wonderful place to visit. We look forward to our next trip!
