From Oklahoma to Chicago

It's strange to think that it's been almost 3 weeks since the wedding! I really do not understand where time goes.Anyhoozle, here are some snaps from the trip to the Midwest, which involved my yearly visit to Oklahoma to see my lovely gals and then a little (actually, very long!) road trip up to Chicago.Not pictured: upon realizing we were not going to make it to see the fireworks with Beth, my 7-year old desire to see them suggested we stop in a random town on the way, wait for an hour, and then watch, but Mary's desire (and motherly instinct understood that 10-hours in a car is a long time for a 4-year old) to just get there won | the point of the road trip where everything just becomes silly | swimming in the hotel after our 12-hour drive, which consisted of multiple switches from the "hot pool" to the "cold pool" (per Georgia, naturally) | and everyone's obsession with candy crush. **IMG_9311IMG_93019257674916_0c648ac5dc_bI was thrilled when I could see the fireworks from the hotel!Screen Shot 2013-07-23 at 10.49.46 AMIMG_9372IMG_9368IMG_9451IMG_9397IMG_9403Screen Shot 2013-07-23 at 6.57.02 PMyes, I was obsessed with the Bean!IMG_9457IMG_9483Screen Shot 2013-07-22 at 10.41.41 AMIMG_9480Screen Shot 2013-07-24 at 5.45.06 PMIMG_0489O'hare's knock-off of the tunnel in Detroit, personally I like Detroit's better!
