1. The post is late and all the images are our of order. My apologies. Above, M, her Cinderella barbie, Grammie, Granddaddy, B, and I went to see Cinderella on Sunday afternoon. It was beautifully done and we had a wonderful time.
2. These two are very entertaining and sat by this fence "talking" and working on the lawn mower for a surprisingly long time. When they are getting along it is the cutest. We've had a bit of a crazy week with E who has gone from great, to sick, and now moved on to crazy. Yes, pretty much the norm for 2.
9. After two days of Spring break that only involved normal school week things (French lessons, Spanish lessons, baseball practice) and hanging out at home it seemed like we needed to venture out in to the world even if I had no energy. So, I noticed the Mexican Folkloric dancers were performing at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum and headed that way. The kids sat right up front on the floor for the performance and seemed to really enjoy it or at least pay rapt attention. B tried to parse out some of the occasional random Spanish phrases and the ladies and a few gentlemen did an awesome job. They were very appreciative performers as several of them came up to us afterwards and thanked us for coming and being such a great audience. Hooray!
10. Yes, my Great-Grandparents and Grandparents to an extent pretty much embody Oklahoma's western heritage, but I hadn't worked up the moxy to take the kids to this particular Museum previously although it has been on the list forever and we have been to the festival on the grounds before. The kids seemed to enjoy it. We looked over some art and compared it to Monet and types of art we know. I admired some very nice otter sculptures that reminded me of the Okeene library and then on to the "somewhat creepy" wild west town. It was meant to look like it was dusk in there, but was kind of spooky and there weren't that many people. We did see B's sunday school teacher in there though. Then, we went out to the Children's Corral building. The favorites were these saddles and a little campsite where they pretended to sleep and feed each other. The grounds were extremely nice including many water features and, to my surprise, quite a lot of horse graves. We wandered all over outside and were there a solid 2 hours before anyone mentioned leaving, which we consider a success. Remaining museums in the metro on our bucket list are: Banjo Museum (might go Friday), Oklahoma History Center, and Oklahoma Bombing Memorial... not sure if they or I am ready for the last one yet, but someday. Any other recommendations for exploring our area are appreciated.
