June 14

Hey there Campers;

We had a great day. We started with a great Barbie breakfast and then went to church in Edmonds. It is funny how you get to see people you have not seen in a long time. There always seems to be people we know wherever we go. Today, we saw Paul & Larry Brinley's niece whom we have not seen since she was a little girl. She just moved to OK last week. We did not get to see Larry as he was in CA for Karissa graduation. You go Rissa Bell. Happy graduation tomorrow. Sorry we could not be there.

We had lunch at Becky, Nick S mother-in-laws house. It is always good to eat with family. Nick & Sara are getting a new house so we went to check it out. It is really cute. Of course you know he is planning to remodel. We will not get to see Sara this time as she is taking a course at South Western in math. She is getting ready to be a full time teacher starting in Aug. We are all glad as things are working well for them in OK.

Nick took us on a tour of the city. We in CA may think OK is backwards but I tell you they have it going on. The homes of the "old money Oilmen" were like Hollywood. It is not far from where they will be living. Very little is gated. There are more universities in OK than in any state in the USA. OK was not hit hard by the 2008 recession. Looking for a place to live? 

We also saw the school where Sara will teach and the boys will go.

We came back to Becky's house to check out Nick's man toy. His precious Jeep. What is it with men and their cars??? Well, I guess they can say the same thing about our shoe collection. Ok. I will be quite because I love me a good shoe. Oh Yeah!!

On the way back to Barbie & Rex's we stop to see Ferdinand the bull. Oh my is he a bull. Talk about a rack on him. Watch out lady cows.

On another farm across the street must have been his cousins

When we got back to Barbie's we made the Adventist staple for Saturday night dinner. Haystacks.

We Campers, it is time to call it a night. The wind is really sweeping down the plains because it is shaking the Hilton.

Until next time/

Lo & Bren

Question of the day
What famous trail in on Hwy 81?


  1. Tell the family Hi for us and give them all a hug for us too.

  2. Ferdinand is ADORABLE.
    Don't forget to take a good headshot of yourselves - you're our foreign campmeeting correspondents for the newsletter!

    I'm sorry you missed church this week - Yasmin Shand and Conrad showed up. Conrad has turned out to be a good looking and distinguished young man, and Yasmin -- well. She looks exactly the same, which means ridiculously beautiful. It was really, really nice to see them.
