Vacation 2013

Back in December of 2012, my nephew asked his then girlfriend to marry him. Of course she said yes! The plan was for them to get married in Oklahoma in July 2013. They also asked us if our 2 year old could be one of the flower girls.

We began our trip on Tuesday, July 16. It was an 18+ hour trip from North Carolina. We were also traveling with my brother and sister in law and their children.

Finally made it to the Mississippi River:

After traveling all night Tuesday and all day Wednesday, we finally saw this sign about 5 PM:

Since we arrived Wednesday night, we were able to take Thursday as a sight seeing day. We headed to Tulsa and visited Oral Roberts University. We also drove a little ways on Route 66.

On Friday, we helped my brother and sister in law get ready for the rehearsal dinner.
Here is my 2 yr old at rehearsal:

Saturday, July 20th, was the big day! We arrived at the church and everyone was getting ready and taking pictures.

We went to church the next morning and left Oklahoma at about 6 PM. We knew we had a long trip ahead of us. We traveled all night on Sunday and all day on Monday. Monday, July 22, was also my youngest son's 10th birthday.

It was so great to finally be back in North Carolina!

Since we were traveling the day of my son's 10th birthday, we had candles and cake when we returned from our trip:
