Patfest 2010

This years Patfest had a fiesta style theme to it and kickball was added to the mix this year. It was another great year with good friends and great firework display by the DePew's!! Can't wait till next years Patfest!!

Naturals Celebration

This year for the 4th of July we went to the Naturals baseball game with my family to watch the game and of course the firework display. Two years ago Chris's family and my family went to the first Naturals 4th of July display. Last year the Naturals were out of town for the 4th and we watched fireworks at Patfest. The game was great as usual and the fireworks show was better than the first one!! Every time I watch fireworks it brings an smile to my face and they make me feel like a kid again.


I know that you all have probably thought that we died but these past couple of months have been the craziest months that we have ever had. Every weekend we have had something planned and we haven't had a lot of time for ourselves!! But at the end of June and beginning of July we decided to take some time off. We took the time off in hopes of going to the College World Series. Sadly we didn't make it so we just decided to hang around town and go to some places that we have never been before.

One of those places was Terra Studios which is located just outside of Fayetteville. They are known for making the bluebird of happiness. My parents had taken me as a child but Chris had never been there before. It's an interesting little place where they make pottery and other types of artistic things. There is a place to eat and walk around. If you are ever looking for an eclectic place to visit for the afternoon then I would suggest this one.

Tulsa Fun

This past weekend we all piled into our Xterra and headed over to Tulsa for the night. Our friend Greg got tickets to see the Tulsa Talons play at the BOK center and since it was his birthday we thought we would have a celebration in Tulsa. We started our night out eating at Pei Wei and after we stuffed ourselves we headed over to the BOK center to watch the game. I've never been to the BOK center before but it was really nice. I normally don't like watching football but arena league football isn't so bad especially since you get to sit inside!!

After the game we all decided that we needed to go somewhere for dessert. Every time we go to Tulsa we talk about eating at the Melting Pot but we always end of going to the Cheesecake Factory. So this time we decided to change our normal eating place and go to the Melting Pot. Becky always talks about how great the Melting Pot is and she was right. We ate so much cheese fondue and chocolate fondue that we made ourselves sick. It's definitely one place that we'll be going back to when we head back to Tulsa.
