Before I was a mom,
I was an aunt.
It is still one of the favorite titles attached to my name.
Before The Angel and The Dinosaur came home,
our niece and nephew were with us almost every weekend.
Now that our nephew is 16 and driving,
I feel like we are always begging to see him.
Having him around always keeps us laughing,
but I know that we are not near as cool as his friends right now.
Last weekend, however, we were a full crew.
Our nephew even brought one of his buddies to hang out with us.
We set out to pick peaches at an orchard about an hour away.
We got to the orchard too late and with the 105 temperature outside,
we opted for a favorite Oklahoma pit stop on old Route 66,
a burger joint that specializes in pop.
It's an old school salute to all things cola.
