Here are the rest of our pictures from the Adventure. Enjoy!
Some pictures from Pops and the Round Barn, two landmarks on Route 66 just outside Edmond, OK where Ily’s parents live. ... See my Tabblo>
The Farm in Ft. Collins, CO with the Wright family. The kids had fun trying out the water pump, feeding animals, and playing at the little playground. ... See my Tabblo>
We played in the Cache La Poudre River not too far from the Wrights’ house. The kids played in the mud while Ily, Bryan, and Nolan all completely submerged themselves (very briefly) in the glacial waters to make sure all their senses were still working. Check! Steffenie got it all on video and hasn’t embarrassed us by making it available (yet?)

Perhaps I just have a bad memory from previous posts, but what is "Pops" again?
Looks like fun! We have our summer road trip coming up in a week and a half. I hope we have half as much fun as it looks like you guys did!

I don't think I ever explained Pops very well, now that you mention it. It's a gas station/restaurant on old Route 66 in Oklahoma that has over 500 different kids of pop, as well as a large pop-bottle monument in the front. Here's the website:
Ily's parents suggested we meet there for dinner the night we arrived in Oklahoma. The food was fine. The pop was amazing to see. They had a whole freezer just for Jones Soda, and then a whole wall of all the other kinds.
Ily got the local Round Barn Root Beer. Micah's favorite color is blue, so he wanted blue pop and sure enough there was a whole shelf of blue sodas. He got a Moxie Blue Creme Soda that was actually pretty good. Isaac chose by color also, only he likes red. He got some kind of cherry pop. I got a creme soda that was only so-so (I couldn't find Henry Weinhard's). I grabbed a Jalisco Mango out of the Foreign Pop section for Reece, just for kicks, and I liked that one too. Definitely a fun place.

We do have the video's up at http://www.steffandnols.com In the Clara's 5th Month folder, there are some video recorder icons near the bottom of the folder. That is where the swimming videos are!

Oh...yes...there they are...great... Oh well, now that it's out, I'll just mention that this video where I win the swim race is the only one worth watching:
