A few weeks ago I got a call from Monica. She's engaged and needs an engagement session  in a hurry! She and Andrew are both from Kentucky. Yes, you heard right. Kentucky - Derby, Wildcats, Bluegrass. Andrew is a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army and they are both grads of University of Kentucky. The Military is shipping them out . . .again. Next stop Ft. Bragg. Officers training is rugged under any circumstances but Artillery training at Ft. Sill in July? Really? Well, of course, with our military history and a great family love story at Ft. Sill (my inlaws were married there in 1945), I said yes! Monica said they could come to Tulsa - NO WAY. Ft. Sill is their Oklahoma home and they should have some pictures to prove it.  I also discovered they hadn't been to Meers for a burger! WHAT?! I felt personally responsible for remedying that situation before they left the state. So . . Roadtrip!   Packed up the hubs and my little Kato (also never had a Meers burger - slacker parents) and headed to Lawton, OK for the day. These two are going to be a great military couple. They can withstand a lot! Heat. Buffalo. Buffalo chips. Monica is so flexible and just kind of goes with the flow - (the military appreciates that).  Andrew - well the military is a good husband trainer because they learn to do a lot of stuff they don't really want to do and not complain!   It was 109 in the shade - did I mention Oklahoma in July? Our heat index was 114.  A scorcher by anyone's standards, but these two just sailed through, and Andrew was in his dress blues for a bit! I love Lawton and have so many wonderful memories there and at Ft. Sill that I'll have to admit, even with the heat, I wasn't ready to leave. These two are both avid Wildcat fans and have the cutest little pup - Skeeter - who hung out with us a bit too. The Wildcats don't mix it up with Sooners so we did a little tailgating just for kicks. They are scooting back to Kentucky to get married in October in the week or so the military will allow them before heading to North Carolina. Wishing you both all the best in your life together! Thank you for your service!
