1.  This is Ben and I with “Le Petite Roche,” the namesake for Little Rock, Arkansas.  The river behind us is the Arkansas River.

2.  This is Ben at the Oklahoma Welcome Center.  Traveling with a pregnant woman leads to many bathroom breaks, but we didn’t mind stopping here.  We loved the tee pee pavilions.

3.  This is The Stone Lion Inn, where the murder mystery took place.  We had a blast and if you are ever near Guthrie, Oklahoma you should attend one of their murder mystery dinners.  I would recommend it for sure.  The food is great, the owner and staff were a delight and I loved staying in The White Peacock house.  I would recommend the French room.  Our bathtub was huge!

4.  This is Ben and I as the characters, Forrest and Virginia Lawne.  Our murder mystery was set in 1928 and we had to dress the part.  I loved getting all dressed up, even though I am 6 months pregnant.  Thank God my character was pregnant because my baby bump is pretty hard to hide these days.

5.  Everyone looked so great, but sadly the lighting wasn’t the best for pictures.  (From Left to Right:  Katie Kester, Cristina Kinney, Me and Katie Doughty)
