From OK to TX and Back Again

These pictures capture just a few of the fun things we did over Spring Break. I get very camera lazy when I'm on vacation.

Ava wanted to make cupcakes before we left for Texas.

Mommy was too lazy to go to the grocery store, so we pieced together three recipes with things we could scrounge in the pantry.

The finished product was a success that Daddy deemed 'the best cupcake' he's ever eaten.

A sweet, brilliant, blossoming photographer, Amanda, agreed to a session with Ava on a sunny afternoon. My mom was gracious enough to snap a few of her own while I attempted to corral Ava and chase away The Scary Smile that often creeps up in pictures nowadays.

Happy girl

Lovey-dovey with Mommy

(I swear that's hip and not preggo baby belly...yikes.)

Ava and I were ecstatic to meet up with Patrick and Courtney for breakfast and shopping.

Later we had a playdate with Jack and Leah. What fun!

We arrived back in Norman just in time for a Spring Break Snowfall Extravaganza. Coach and Mimi, who rode back with us to see Josh, were delighted with our crazy weather.

The 3 Locketts - happy to be reunited after almost a week apart.

I feel refreshed after a week with family and friends, but I'm so glad to be home. After a few days of un-grandparenting Ava and un-batcheloring Josh life will be back to normal. I can't wait to post a few of the remaining pictures on my Spring Break roll, hmmm...I wonder what the future will hold?
