We left the house at 8:45 a.m. or so, planning to visit my sister and her family before they headed back toward Arkansas — they’d been staying in a cabin at BLORA (Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area). I thought it was about half an hour away; it was more like 50 minutes. Still, we had[…]

For Rebecca’s second birthday, we drove to Seminole County, Oklahoma, to be with my family for a couple of days, much like we did last year (recorded here). This was her third trip to Oklahoma and her fourth visit to a state besides Texas (see where we’ve been).

In a very rare instance, my wife and I will both have birthdays this weekend. She is 28 today, and I’ll be (gulp!) 37 tomorrow. Last night, after her shift ended, we ate dinner at Bush’s Chicken, which was better than we’d expected and filled us up for $13. We toured the new Academy Sports[…]
