A Trip to Oklahoma…

I took a whirlwind trip back to Oklahoma last week to help my parents celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary.  My poor mom wasn’t feeling well and didn’t go to the friends and family dinner that my father had planned for the event and it was sad to see my dad sitting alone at the head of the table without my mother.  We had a wonderful dinner at the Cherokee Yacht Club at Grand Lake, but it would have been way more fun if mom had been feeling well enough to come.

The weather was wonderful while I was there…not hot and muggy and there were no tornadoes rolling through.

There were lots of deer and baby deer roaming around while I was there.  This one wasn’t camera shy.

My dad told us about an all white baby deer that lives nearby that was rejected by his mother because he was born looking different from the other deer.  The deer lives among cows because accepted him as one of their own.  He is SO cute.  My brother was kind enough to stop and let me take a picture of him.

He let me get a little closer, I think he knows he is really cute and not a reject.

Yeah, I know I'm cute.
