Peyton and Brennan have never been to Oklahoma before so it was a real treat for many of their relatives to meet them for the first time. Everybody has seen their videos on YouTube but it was something else to be with them in person.
Staying at a hotel with 2 adults and 4 kids can be a challenge. Usually, you can only sleep 4 guests to a room. Many hotels don't have suites, or suites large enough to accommodate 6 guests, so we usually have to get two rooms. The problem with getting two rooms is that 1 adult has to sleep in each room (the kids are too little to be by themselves). Having the parents in separate rooms isn't much of a vacation for them. Luckily, the hotel we stayed at had adjoining rooms (two rooms next to each other with a door between them). We ended up having all 4 kids sleep in one room (they don't mind sharing the big beds) and mom and dad got to have a room to themselves.
One of the things we always do when we visit Oklahoma is go to Ted's Cafe Escondido. This is the best Tex Mex that I've ever had and I eat as much of it as I can while I'm in town. Below is a picture of my friend and me after a very yummy dinner at Ted's.
