For the last few weeks we have been attempting to buy a historic home in our town! We've been waiting patiently for one to come up for sale that we love. And we found one!! We had been told it was on the historic trolley tour..so we had to check it out for ourselves. It was on the tour!! The story goes that it is the original home of Dr.Charles Smith and his wife built in 1901. His wife had ordered a jar of olives from the local grocer which was considered a delicacy. She saved them for a while for just the right party. When she finally did serve them, they were rotten! So she was known as the lady who served rotten olives. What a great story to learn more about the history of this home. We now have a contract on the house and are now just waiting for inspection and getting a renter for our current house. Here's some pics from the trolley ride and snow cones afterward:

Jordan and I made brownie's last night. I think his favorite part was licking the bowl afterward:

Then the boys and I went outside to play, or eat dirt as Grant did:

I showed Jordan how to play hop-scotch..he loved it! We played it for a long time!

Fun trip to the science museum in OKC:

"I will be your pilot for the day!"
As soon as we get the house stuff all settled, I'll post pics of it!!
