Oklahoma Trip ~ Day Four

Image
 Parker started our first full day in Oklahoma City in full vacation mode - relaxing in bed, watching cartoons and eating breakfast! He LOVES hotels - he was so excited each day to be staying in a hotel and still talks about the next time we can go stay in another hotel.  We had some issues with our air conditioner the night before and next morning.  They tried replacing a part and that didn't work so they ended up replacing the entire unit while we were out for the day. It made for a stuffy environment for a little while, but we ended up getting a free night at the hotel!
Our plan for today was to visit and explore the Science Museum and eat lunch there.  Then we had some more fun planned for later in the afternoon and evening.
I will let the pictures speak for themselves (this isn't even all of the pictures we took), but we had SO MUCH FUN at the Science Museum.  We all agreed that this was our favorite part of the entire trip.  It was HUGE - two stories and tons of int…

Oklahoma - Day Three

Today we finished up our time in Stillwater and then made our way to Oklahoma City.

After we got up and ready for the day, we checked out of our hotel and went to breakfast.

Granny’s Kitchen was another place I found online that was highly recommended. It did not disappoint! It was a small family owned cafe and one of our favorite meals of the trip. It was a yummy way to start the day.


After breakfast, we made our way to a small children's museum/play place in Stillwater before we made the trek to Oklahoma City. Unfortunately, it was extremely crowded.  Because of the Oklahoma teacher's strike, the kids were out of school for a few days.  It was more crowded and louder than we anticipated.  Parker wanted to stay and play for a little while, but we didn't stay a very long time.  It would have been a fun place if it was a little less packed.  After we played for a while, we shopped a little, had lunch and drove to Oklahoma City.


After we arrived in Oklahoma City, we checked …

Oklahoma Trip ~ Day Two

Monday was day two of our adventuring through Oklahoma. 

We got up and ready for the day at ate breakfast at the hotel.  We stopped by a local coffee shop for some yummy coffee before we hit the road for a little day trip. 


Our destination was Pawhuska, Oklahoma and it was about 75-80 miles from our hotel.  Pawhuska is a very small town in the middle of nowhere basically, but it's home to The Mercantile, the Pioneer Woman's restaurant and store.

My love for the Pioneer Woman (Ree Drummond) runs deep.  I have all of her fabulous cookbooks, have made several of her yummy recipes, have lots of her kitchenware items/utensils/dishes and love watching her show.  Much to my delight, Parker has grown to love watching her show as well.  We will record episodes and watch it while we eat lunch sometimes.  Sweet times!   

Needless to say, I was a wee bit eager for this day.  John and Parker were so sweet and kind to make a day out of going here. I think Parker was a little dis…
