Oklahoma Visit Day #4

Yesterday was another great day.  We visited Bricktown in Oklahoma City.  It's a revamped area of downtown where they've put in a man-made canal thing, very similar to the RiverWalk in San Antonio.  We took a boat tour and ate lunch at Toby Keith's I Love this Bar restaurant.  My kids of course both ordered THE MOST expensive item on the list...Salmon!  Really? You come to Oklahoma and you order Salmon, that probably had to be imported overnight from Alaska!  Not a lot of Salmon fishing going on in Oklahoma.  But they both ate it all and any time Zack eats something beside Fruit Loops, Nerds or Eggo Waffles I'm a happy camper!

Then we went back to Aunt Linda's and hung out for most of the day.  We played with the dogs, tie-dyed shirts, celebrated Mimi's birthday and generally ate until we all fell into food comas! Seriously the amount of food we have consumed on this visit is more than enough to feed a mid-sized nation.  Aunt Linda keeps the food coming at programed intervals, we're at the point that we're eating just because it's there - I don't think anyone is even hungry anymore.  She just throws a new meal at us and we all belly up to the trough.  I'm going to be able to live off my food baby for weeks when I get home!

That's it in a nutshell... here's the day in pictures.

Happy 70th Birthday Mimi!
