Fun Friday

Feeling the need to get away for a couple of days, I jumped at the chance to take a short trip when dh suggested it. The girls still have 2 weeks of school, but we decided to let them take a day off on Friday (this is a rare thing for sure). We only went as far as Tulsa, but it was a much needed time away to just play and relax.
Our first stop was the Tulsa zoo. We were a bit disappointed that there seemed to be several "temporarily vacant" signs throughout the animal displays, but we had a great time anyway. The highlight for the girls was a camel ride.

3 strong girls...

After the zoo, we headed to lunch. We had originally just planned on stopping at Claire's favorite place (McD's), but saw that Casa Bonita was open and had lunch there instead. They don't have the greatest food in the world, but the girls love the atmosphere of the place. (Although, I think Emily and Allyson could eat 20 of their simple cheese enchiladas!) After lunch, we let the girls play for awhile in the arcade. When finished, they combined their tickets so they could get a nicer prize (a beach ball for the pool, and lots of candy).

Our next stop was at the Mardel store to get a new large print Bible for Randy. Claire enjoyed listening to the music while dad shopped for new songs to sing in church.

Our final stop for the day was the Doubletree Hotel. The minute we got to our room, the girls put on their swimsuits, and then we were off to the pool. The Doubletree had a wonderful pool...Randy and the girls swam while mom found a lounge chair and enjoyed a couple of hours of doing absolutely nothing! :-)
Claire is really doing well with her swimming, but she must have the most buoyant booty in the world! LOL No matter how hard she tries, she just can't get her booty to dive lower in the water. We've never seen anything like it...she swims along, but her little bottom ALWAYS pops back to the surface!! :-D
We did a little bit of shopping on Saturday and then headed home. So glad we took the day off on Friday, as the rest of the weekend was rainy!
