Birthday Party in Oklahoma City

We decided this was the furthest any of us had ever driven for a birthday party. We drove 7 hours each way to OK City this past weekend to attend a good friend of James' surprise 30th birthday party. There were 6 of us friends from Lincoln who made the trek. And even though we drove all day Sat, played there Sat afternoon/eve and drove back the very next morning - we had a great time! Here are some pics of the quick trip..
Here is the birthday boy in the middle and Harmon & Scott that we drove down with. Kevin was SO surprised!!

We got there a little early so we had some fun before the party. Here are 4 of the 6 of us....

These trees are all over the city. I loved em.

This is at the OK City Bombing Memorial. Really neat place. The chairs were for each victim of the terrorist tragedy.

The Wizard of Oz in Nebraska

Yesterday we had a tornado watch which was then upgraded to a warning here in Lincoln. I had never heard the Tornado Sirens before but they were going off in the afternoon/evening. I kept trying to figure out where they come from. They would get louder and then quieter and then louder again. i kinda wanted to drive around and watch - i've never seen a tornado - i thought it might be like the wizard of OZ - and that didn't turn out too bad. But we stayed inside for most of it. The newspaper said that at least 3 tornadoes hit our county flipping vehicles and damaging homes. Looks like they were all just outside our city limits! Crazy. Its all fun and games until your vehicle gets flipped. But i have heard that the city of Lincoln is pretty protected because the geography is a basin so the tornadoes will skirt the city but never really hit here. Grr... other cities get all the fun.

Warning.... this is gross....

This is what i do to James - I tell him that there are toxins, and we need to get them out. His rule is - "No Nails" But i've never gotten these kind of results....
