We took some time off last week from work & YMCA camp to kick back, relax and enjoy summer. On Tuesday, we headed south for Tulsa, to check out the Oklahoma Aquarium and the Tulsa Zoo. Both were really great. Bonus: the weather was awesome!
265 photos, $64 worth of gift-shop stuffed animals, and 24 hours later..... I'd just like to say "Thanks Tulsa, we had an unexpectedly-terrific time!"
|The kids loved crawling into these tubes that give you a view from inside the tank.
|Check out the lips on this guy!
|The stingrays were our favorite. So cool.
|I think Gus could have watched these stingrays all day long.
|Very cool shark tank and tunnel.
|Got to watch a diver feed the fish.
|Stuffed animals from the gift shop, of course.
|We stayed at Aloft - a very cool, hip hotel.
|Managed to find a cupcake shop called Smallcakes. Yum.
|One of the only restaurants we could find that doesn't exist in Wichita. Delicious, btw.
|The Tulsa Zoo is fabulous. Lots of shade and great animals on exhibit.
|Bea is the exact proportions of a chimp. Go figure.
|The sea lion show was AWESOME. Wish Wichita's zoo had cool shows like this.
|This guy was just beggin' to have his photo taken.
|Gus was trying to act like a stone statue. And Bea... was her goofy self.
|The only part of the goat he would touch.
|Bea wanted to draw pictures of every animal at the zoo.
|She sketched everywhere.
|And kept on sketching.
|Gus even posed as a meerkat for her so she could get the drawing right.
|Gus was our navigator. That kid loves a good map.
