With legislators gone and no special session for the first time in four years, Oklahoma’s first family is making summer vacation plans.
Gov. Brad Henry plans to attend a summer meeting June 10-13 of The Council of State Goverments in Puerto Pico. Henry is president of the organization.
The governor and the first lady, Kim Henry, plan in late June to go on a mission trip with the former pastor of their church, the First Baptist Church in Shawnee. They will be distributing treated mosquito nets to children and pregnant women in Ghana, Africa.
“We’ve been wanting to go on this particular mission trip for some time and I think we’ll be able to work it out,” Henry said.
With his oldest daughter planning to start college this fall, the governor said the family will focus on spending time with her before “she leaves the nest.” Leah, 17, is planning to study out of state.
“My other two daughters will be home and we’ll just try to have some good, quality time this summer,” he said.
Before summer officially arrives, the governor and first lady will be celebrating their wedding anniversary. They will be married 21 years Thursday.
