Glenn just went back to work this week after a 2 week vacation. We spent 3 nights, 2 days in Cambria. It was great to just get away and relax.

The rest of the time we stayed around here. Glenn had a list of things he wanted to get done. (okay, I had a list for him too..Ha!) But, although he got a few things accomplished, we mainly relaxed and enjoyed the time together. I can't wait until Glenn retires!

Back in August we made a trip to Oklahoma City for our niece's wedding. It was fun seeing the family. We wish Greg and Erika could've made it but finances don't always cooperate with our wishes, do they? The wedding turned out so nice. Just look at this picture....aren't Amber & Jim a beautiful/handsome and happy couple? Glenn & I stayed a few days after the wedding to visit with family. It was great staying with Glenn's sister Peggy for a few days.

We'd never been to Oklahoma City. We saw the memorial site of the federal building bombing. It took us a couple of hours to walk through the memorial and what a wonderful job was done to tell the story. Also very intense. I found myself crying in a couple of the rooms.
If you ever have a chance to go I do recommend that you try to see it.
Something we noticed about Oklahoma City as we walked around on Sunday afternoon is that nothing is open and the place is deserted. This is a picture looking down the center of a major street. No cars, no people. It was weird, like being in the twilight zone. But so peaceful! Our niece reminded us that Oklahoma is bible belt country. Wow, wouldn't it be great if everywhere was like that? Sunday could really be set aside for church, family and most of all the Lord.

I've been to that memorial. It was touching. I got teary for sure.
What a beautiful couple! She looks stunning.
Steve's sister lives in OKC so we get out there now and then.
Not much to it! Got to eat at Eskimo Joe's!

You guys are too cute. My parents just got back from their mini vacation to Cambria. What's up with you small town people going to another small town for a vacation. Gotta love Cambria though!
