Spring Break Road Trip!

Since the Sgt. had to go out of town during Spring break, we had to cancel our original plans to go camping. THe kid and I hung out at home most of the week. Did a few fun things, but the Sgt. and I had decided to take them to the OK aquarium on Fri to make up for the missed trip. We loaded up Fri morning, hooked up the DVD player, packed a basket of toys for lil'man and took off for a 2 hour car ride to Jenks, OK - right outside Tulsa. Thankfully lil'man fell asleep on the way and the other 2 enjoyed their movie. We got to tulsa in time to grab a bite and then headed on over to the aquarium. THe kids had a good time, we ran into my dear friend from Moms in Touch, and in general it was a fun experience. However, it cost us 50 bucks just to get in and while I appreciate the expense that goes into running that facility, the Sgt. and I were just not that impressed. Oh well. Now we know. Lil' man got to ride around in the backpack carrier for a while and then we let him walk a bit. He said "ish" and pointed at the displays - very cute. J and EK really enjoyed the shark tank - it's built such that you actually walk in a tunnel so the sharks can swim overhead. That was cool. After our visit I did get to run into Macy's and the Gap(they have a maternity section in that one) but couldn't manage to find a thing. It rained all day and got colder over the course of the afternoon, all leading up to snow today.
