Weekend Update {OKC}

Andrew and I got up and made Hadley rainbow pancakes in honor of St. Paddy's Day!

She thought they were the coolest and really enjoyed the rainbow fruit skewers too.
We spent the morning packing for our short family vacay and then headed to McDonald's for a birthday party.
Hadley and Emerson eating their HappyMeals.

My little party girl!

The birthday boy blowing out his candles.

There was ice cream too!!

Hadley modeling the green icing around her mouth, ha.

Erin and I tried to get a cute picture of Hadley and Emerson together.
Attempt #1


(I guess this will do.)


After the party we headed to Oklahoma City.
First, we checked into our hotel, where Hadley broke in the bed with some intense jumping.

We proceeded the evening with dinner at Spaghetti Warehouse.
 A guy came around doing magic tricks and made Hadley a balloon.  She was so excited (not evident by the picture) because she had been talking about a balloon the entire meal.

After dinner we headed down the riverwalk for some ice cream.

And to top the evening off we took Hadley to the 3D version of The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss.

Hadley was glued the whole time.  In fact one time she actually reached out to touch something.  When she didn't grab it she took her glasses off and looked around for a minute before putting them back on.

On the walk back to our car we passed through the botanical gardens in Bricktown, gorgeous.

We started the day with Krispy Kreme.  Then we were headed to the zoo.  It actually turned out to be really windy, but lucky for us the Science Museum was right next door so we did that instead.


 Hadley and Andrew got to experience a small tornado in this little booth.

"Now over to our meteorologists Andrew and Hadley...."

For whatever reason Hadley sprinted over to this teeth exhibit.  Maybe we have a potential dentist in our midst.

I think both Pap-pa and Pajee would be proud to see Hadley behind the wheel of this John Deere.

Andrew had a blast too.  =)

Hadley was a natural going down the fire pole.

Hadley spent probably 45 minutes "painting" in this little area.
We also got to see a live science show, it was so much fun!  Hadley sat there looking as though she was taking it all in. 

On our way out the door we ran into Otto!!!  Hadley got so excited and was all too eager to get her picture taken with him.

Although the plan was to go to the zoo I'm so glad things worked out the way they did.  We didn't have to bother with the wind or the possible rain and we all had a GREAT time.  We're definitely going to have to make a trip back because there was a 2nd floor that we didn't even look at.

We've started our spring break off with a bang.  We have family coming in on Tuesday and I can't wait to spend time with them as well.  
What do y'all have planned for your spring break?

Thanks for checkin' in!!

  1. What a wonderful weekend! It sounds like every part of it was fun and exiciting.

  2. I grew up going to the Omniplex! So glad you all liked it!

  3. The wind was ridiculous this weekend. Glad you all found the Omniplex! It's not called the Omniplex anymore, but I had so many field trips there as a child that I can never call it anything else. The rainbow pancakes are SO fun!!


I love getting comments!
