Trip to Tulsa, Ok

The first weekend in May, Josh and I took a trip to Tulsa, OK to attend the wedding of my best guy friend (under Josh, of course!) of over 10 years, Clint. Clint and I met on a Young Life ski trip our junior year of high school and have stayed in touch ever since. He is one of THE sweetest guys you'll ever meet and comes from an incredible family. Seriously, they are so genuinely kind, love the Lord, and are very unpretentious. If we were not married to our respective (God-chosen) spouses, I would consider marrying Clint b/c not only do I know he'll be an amazing husband, but mostly to get into that family! hahaha. The wedding was delightfully laid-back--i got to wear a cotton dress with cowgirl boots...clint got married in jeans...mason jars with flowers...stacks of cookies as the cake....BBQ, beans, and potato salad...and lots of love. The whole day was full of family. Clint's brother-in-law performed the ceremony, his brother wrote/performed a song for them, his nieces were flowergirls, his nephew was the ring bearer, and his dad was his best man. Bless their hearts, the wedding was originally planned to be on Clint's family land, but due to weather, they had to move it to his parents' church last minute. Needless to say it was a stressful few days for them and their families, but they pulled it off beautifully! Here are some pics from our trip out and time there. It was a fun trip and definitely went too quickly! They aren't in any very good order. Sorry about that....Since we were going to be on a plane in a very confined space with others for hours, we decided to go with the masks... it wasn't like we went out and bought themesp since we were stopping in TX by Mexico... better safe than sorry.
The airline lost our luggage. Fortunately, it came in on the next flight from Houston, but in the meantime, the Pollards gave us these kits that Clint's brother had gotten flying overseas to be at the wedding.... in them was stuff like toothbrushes, toothpaste...and as you can see, sleep masks. Josh originally put it on as a joke, but fell asleep before he could take it off. hahaha
Heading to the wedding!

Cute flower girls!
Beautiful bride!

He couldn't take his eyes off of her.
Manchi was a beautiful bride.

The...(silly) love of my life. :)
Clint's sister, Liz, and her family. 2 girls, 1 boy, and one boy on the way!
(She is one of the best looking preggos I've ever seen. This pic does not do her justice.
I guess by the 4th one, she's a pro!)
Their precious "cake" topper.
Mr. and Mrs. Clint Pollard!
Flash caught J.Gam off-guard...

Clint is very indulgent of his nephew!
