Happy Anniversary to Us!

Mornin' all! I know I'm late posting this morning, but it's my anniversary and I'm just starting the coffee for my Hunny. Then I'll head to bed for the day. But I want to share a few shots of what our celebration day looked like. So. The day in photos.

Our first stop, after the intermediate school for an IEP update on Little Guy (I'll try and remember to update y'all on that later this week) was First Watch for
breakfast. I know they're a franchise, since I've eaten in one in Orlando, but this one was better. Maybe it's just because I'm happier in Tulsa. But it was good. Here's a photo of a window hanging inside the restaurant - I thought it was pretty:

Next to Hobby Lobby, where I took no photos, but we bought Little Guy a map. That had to do with our morning at school.

Y'all already know about these little fellas (I know they're destructive - they're still cute!):

We actually took a wrong turn into the park while looking for something else. The wrong turn led us to an adorable garden shop, where I bought this:

Isn't he the cutest little sock monkey ever? His name, according to his tag, is Mr. Monkeysuit. Someone needs to keep the chimps company.

Just outside the shop was a beautiful greenhouse and garden (albeit dormant):

We finally made it to our destination - the Philbrook Museum. Tulsa actually has a couple of very nice mueums, including this one. I asked at the desk to make sure I could take photos, then figured out how to turn off the flash on my purse camera. Look what we saw! I'm going to just drop in the variety here:

And this:

And this (I love Thomas Moran):

Some more (crow's feet!):

Even more (weird stuff from Africa)!

Cool huh? Okay, this one isn't cool, so much, as just ... ummm ... let's just say it caught my eye. Now I can't remember what it was called. Something about mother earth laid bare, I think:

And it wouldn't be Tulsa and the southwest if there weren't some of these:

And these:

And that's all for now. Time for bed. Have a blessed Sunday, all!

Until I write again ...

Lovin the sock monkey key chain! These are beautiful and so clear I feel like I just had a tour, girl!

Great shots and I too love the violent ocean painting. Sounds like you guys had fun and again...

Happy Anniversary!

Happy anniversary!

And I also love museums of any kind. When my hubby was gone in Iraq, I took my son to the museum a lot. Because - well - there was always food, drink, and climate control available. PLUS there was people-watching. Bonus!

Happy Anniversary! Did you tell us how many years, or is it a secret?
What a nice way to spend the day together. I hope you go back to that garden when it is in bloom and share it with us all!

Happy Anniversary Flea! Ours is on the 15th!
Looks like you had a great day and I loved the pics. I have to be honest though. Mother Earth's V, got me all flustered. I couldn't concentrate after that hehe!

The Madonna with Child painting..there's one somewhere like that with a ufo in the sky. I was looking..LOL I wanna be abducted by aliens..but only if they can send me back thin. Now THAT would be a trip worth my while. :D
