Weekend in Tulsa for Carson's 7th Birthday
Bob and I drove to Tulsa to be with Carson when she celebrated her 7th birthday. We arrived on Friday night and stayed with Ed & Judy, Christy's parents. Caty had been at church camp all week and was to come home on Saturday, so Bob and I were at Corbin & Christy's house bright and early at 6:45 a.m. to sit for Christian (and their dog Sitka). Carson wanted to go with her parents to the camp to see it, as she will be going next year. Christian got a new motorized jeep so he spent a lot of the time riding around the back yard in it while Bob and I were there. After Corbin, Christy, Caty & Carson got back home, Bob and I had a couple of hours to ourselves before we took the girls to see "Monte Carlo". Cute movie!
Saturday evening, Corbin's family, Christy's sister Tracey, her son Nathan and daughter Danielle, Christy's parents, Ed & Judy, and Bob and I all went to Dave & Buster's to celebrate Carson's 7th birthday. After dinner, Corbin gave each of the kids cards for the games. Even Christian who is three, knew how to play those games and win lots of tickets! The tickets were exchanged in the gift shop for TOYS! The adults followed the kids around while they played the games. Carson loved the large Plexiglas bin loaded with stuffed animals and she was determined to win one of them! She kept running her card through the reader and I thought she was wasting her money, but she kept at it and FINALLY won a BIG, blue stuffed animal! One of the workers came to her when he heard all of the whooping and hollering we all were making when Carson pulled the stuffed animal out of the shoot. He asked her if she would like to go INTO the box with all of the stuffed animals! I told him it was her birthday. Caty and Christian went into the box too. They were only in there for less than a minute. Caty saw her opportunity and took a BIG, yellow tiger to the shoot and put him half-way into it. When she got out of the box of stuffed animals, she played the game and won her BIG, yellow tiger! Carson and Caty took turns playing the game and they won FIVE HUGE stuffed animals! The kids also used their tickets in the gift shop for MORE stuffed animals! It was a FUN evening! I think Carson had a GREAT birthday!
