On Saturday morning we packed up the van and said our goodbyes to Tulsa! We had a 9.5 hour drive to Albuquerque so we left as early as we could (almost 10am). The drive went surprisingly well and everyone slept on and off. We stopped for lunch in Shamrock, TX, at yet another McDonalds. I don't think I'll eat at McDonalds again for a VERY, VERY long time!! We made it to Albuquerque before dark, checked into our hotel, ordered a pizza, and went to bed early.
We made it out of Albuquerque at 8am and were off on our drive to Grandma and Grandpa's house in Gilbert!! It's only a 7 hour drive and one I've done MANY times, so at that point, everything seemed easy. Jacob was on his Sunday pass so he talked to me through most of the drive which made the time go so much quicker!! We pulled into the driveway at about 2:30pm and after saying hi to Grandma and Grandpa, the boys were all ready to go swimming.
The pool was about 75 degrees which isn't quite warm enough for most adults, but is apparently perfect for the five and under crowd. Instead of waiting for me to unpack swimsuits, they just went in their underwear!

Ben LOVES the pool and would live in it if he could!!
Benjamin figured out how to get the strawberries when no one was looking.
Lexie ate most of Grandma's ice cream!! What special treatment you get when you're up later than your brothers!!
Uncle Adam was so happy to see that at least 1 person under the age of 25 still reads the newspaper!!
Lexie enjoyed hanging out with Uncle Adam
