Good times with the in-laws

Warning: Lots of pics thanks to my MIL for always snapping away.  I stole her SIM card before they left so I could copy them onto my computer. :)

Dave's parents came down here to OK from WA for a week. We had a good time celebrating the 4th of July

 
And Elsa's birthday


They enjoyed seeing our apartment and the Air Base

They read together

And played lots of Monopoly

We took them to the kids' favorite restaurants and places.


We went to Golden Corral for a feast of gluttonous proportions that we followed up with a necessary walk around the Lawton Airport.  It's a small airport with a building named for Adin's hero Robert S. Johnson.  He was the 3rd highest scoring ace in WWII


They have a large herd of metal buffalo's in front of the airport.  They're really lifelike and the kids were excited to see them up close.

It was great that they came to visit with us here.  I look forward even more to entertaining them in our permanent location in Alaska.  It's not too long now.  We will be on the road in 1 month!

  1. Please tell your husband, thank you for your service and great pictures of the family and furthermore; thank you for telling that history on the Buffalo Soldiers. My name is Erich Hicks and I wrote a novel, entitled, Rescue at Pine Ridge, "RaPR", where Buffalo Bill Cody meets a Buffalo Soldier. A great story of black military history...the first generation of Buffalo Soldiers.

    How do you keep a people down? ‘Never' let them 'know' their history.

    The 7th Cavalry got their butts in a sling again after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn't for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry.

    Read the novel, “Rescue at Pine Ridge”, 5 stars Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the youtube trailer commercial...and visit the website http://www.rescueatpineridge.com

    I know you’ll enjoy the novel. I wrote the story that embodied the Native Americans and African-American/Black soldiers, from the south to the north, in the days of the Native American Wars with the approaching United States of America. This story is about, brutality, compassion, reprisal, bravery, heroism and gallantry. The story shows the truism to the fullest of a PG-14 perspective...with a DVD release to show the fullest reality of war. Read the novel, Rescue at Pine Ridge, the story of the rescue of the famed 7th Cavalry by the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers.

    Also the novel was taken from my mini-series movie of the same title, “RaPR” to keep my story alive. Hollywood has had a lot of strikes and doesn’t like telling our stories…its been “his-story” of history all along…until now. The movie so far has attached, Bill Duke directing, Hill Harper, Glynn Turman and a host of other major actors in which we are in talks with…see imdb.com at; http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0925633/

    When you get a chance, also please visit our Alpha Wolf Production website at; http://www.alphawolfprods.com and see our other productions, like Stagecoach Mary, the first Black Woman to deliver mail for Wells Fargo in Montana, in the 1890's, “spread the word”.

    Peace.
