En Route to Texas!!

As soon as Coop got out of school and I finished my grades, we headed out on a road trip to visit my Aunt Mary in Texas.  We took our time driving down there, stopping for lunch at PF Changs in Wichita:

Then on to Oklahoma City, where we visited the bombing memorial.  This is the survivors tree that was very very close to the federal building, but survived the bombing and is thriving today:

I hadn't planned to take Coop inside to the museum part, but he was interested in going.  It was spectacular.   They had just recently undergone a $10 million renovation, and it was worth it.  Amazingly high-tech museum with tons of information and absolutely intense exhibits of artifacts from the bombing:

After the bombing memorial, we went to dinner at The Melting Pot in the Bricktown part of OKC.

Cheese fondue!  And then chocolate fondue!  And a salad thrown in the middle for something "healthy."

At our OKC hotel, Coop wanted to work out a bit:

And the next morning, we hit the Science Museum of Oklahoma.  It was pretty crowded, with tons of school groups visiting that day, but we had fun:

After a quick lunch and a stop for gas, we hit the road and were in Texas before we knew it:
