29 and the painful week ahead

Toad is 29 and now begins the long week (my last week of being 29) where he complains daily of being so old... "How can you stand being so old?" and "it's hard to be this old" etc...

For Tom's b-day I drug him--against his will--to Oklahoma's state park, Beavers Bend (2 and a 1/2 hour drive), our closest set of "mountains". I think eventually he did have fun. We stayed at the Lakeview Lodge, hiked around the lake and ate some local catfish. Thanks again to my wonderful mother who watched and even fed our girls so we could get away.

here is the view from our room, those hills in the distance are our lofty peaks

the
"little smokies"



the back roads of Oklahoma were like a foreign country
