A Weekend with the Grandparents

Saturday we did something we have never done before.  My parents had come to visit for the weekend. We watched our HS football game Friday night, but Saturday my mom and I went shopping all day - something we haven't been able to do in many years.  
(Pretty waterfalls along the river.)
My dad and my three boys played golf, something else that hasn't been done in a long time (if ever!), but then we all met at Medicine Park, OK, a neat little town about an hour from here.
(Heart shaped hole in the tree!)
 We ate at "The Old Plantation" restaurant. It was GREAT! The homemade hamburger buns were delicious!  I remember going there when I was a Sophomore or Junior in high school - so a long, long time ago!
 We enjoyed walking along the river - crossing the bridges and seeing the beauty of God's creation and man - made creations.
 My husband had actually performed a wedding here a few weeks ago, so that sparked our interest in the little town.  We had taken pictures here several years ago, but it was Memorial Day, so too crowded to look around much.
 This suspended fishing bobber was hanging in the tree, but it made for a unique picture!
 In a few weeks the fall colors will make this place even more beautiful!  We'll have to go back!
 I could hear the boys mumbling as I took these pictures. For some reason I don't think they were saying, "I am so glad Mom likes to take so many pictures of us all of the time!".  No, I don't think that was it at all! :)
 They didn't complain about this picture, though. I think they were excited to get to be on this special mini-trip with the grandparents.  We all were! It was like we had gone somewhere far away!   But were back to the house in an hour. How nice!  It was relaxing, too.
Thanks for coming, Grandma and Grandpa! We enjoyed you being here! Sorry it had to end so soon!

It is a fun little stop! It's funny how we don't think much about doing things like this close to home. :)
