Shaky Weekend

This week has been pretty much the usual...working, running, hanging out with Cole, etc. Pretty uneventful really which is fine by us! We were looking forward to this weekend too because we didn't have anything planned, and we pretty much kept it that way.

Friday night we went for a family run and picked up some dinner afterwards and just had a low key night. We woke up at 2 am Friday night to our whole house shaking! It wasn't raining, so it couldn't be thunder...it was an earthquake! The center of it was about 80 miles southwest of here, but we still felt the shaking. It was a 4.6, the 2nd largest in Oklahoma ever. Since it was the middle of the night, it was strange, and we had to ask each other if we really felt that.

Saturday we went to Utica Square to go to the Pottery Barn Kids, got some Starbucks and enjoyed the beautiful weather. We also got lunch at the new Jimmy John's that opened in Tulsa near there. We love JJ and always wished they would open one here. The rest of the day I spent cleaning, which carried over to today, and Tony watched a bunch of football. We squeezed in a run for each of us too.

Here's the guys hanging out on the couch watching one of the games.

We went to bed late last night after the LSU/Alabama game, which I fell asleep during. Tony said, hopefully we don't have another earthquake tonight, and not even 10 minutes later when we were watching the news, the house started shaking again! It started out slow and built up to the point where I was getting kind of nervous. Then it slowed down again and stopped. It lasted about a minute total and the news reported that it was a 5.6 earthquake in the same area as Friday night. Who knew that Tulsa would have earthquakes like this? I always worried about tornadoes, so this is one more thing! I felt an earthquake here before Janet had one in San Diego! I just hope we don't have another one anytime soon.

Cole did really well with the time change this morning and slept until the new 7:00am! Yay! We didn't have to get up at 6:00am like I thought we might. I finished up my cleaning, Tony did some stuff in the yard, and we made a quick trip to the grocery store. The earthquake was the biggest thing we had going this weekend. We also had fun hanging out with the little guy. We really look forward to the weekend with him. :)
