Weekend in OKC

We spent Memorial Day weekend together in Oklahoma City. We booked a kid friendly hotel with a fabulous pool right off of Bricktown. We spent our days swimming and the evenings walking Bricktown in search of a place to eat dinner. We had wonderful meals at The Cheesecake Factory, Fuzzy's Taco Shop, Crabtown, Panera Bread, and lunch at the zoo.

We spent a beautiful and hot Sunday morning at the zoo. The bears, giraffes, hippos, and monkeys were all so much fun to see, and the tigers were DARLING. They were full of energy as they wrestled and played in the water as their momma watched under a shade tree. The dad was here one minute, and gone the next. All of a sudden we saw him creeping low and watching. Watching the momma. He waited and finally..POUNCE! She jumped and he gave her a playful and loving rub with his head against hers the way cats do to someone they really love.

Really, one of the sweetest moments I've ever seen.

Another wonderful moment that captivated the boys..well all of us really, is about the only moment I got any pictures of the whole time because, you guessed it, my camera battery died. Again.

We went in to visit the most beautiful birds from Australia. They were just walking around all over the place. You could also feed them. Someone gave us their leftovers, so we got to spend time feeding these gorgeous birds!
