Early June in Oklahoma

We made a trip to Oklahoma the first of June. Our first stop was Oklahoma City. We were able to meet up with one of my friends from college for a few days! Since we have both had families, we have tried to see each other every year or two. Somehow it's been longer than that this time because we each hadn't met our youngest child! We had a blast together braving Oklahoma City with 5 kids! We stayed in a Hyatt Place, which is my new favorite hotel chain. They have two beds and then a partition to a roomy living area with a pullout couch. So, we were all able to fit comfortably! They also have free breakfast. The first day we went to the Oklahoma City Zoo. It was a pretty hot day, but the kids had a great time seeing all the animals! We went to a small sprayground later that afternoon to cool off, and then brought pizza back to the hotel for dinner. Somehow going out for dinner with a 6 year old, 2 4 year olds & 2 2 year olds just didn't sound too appealing!

The next morning we went to the Science Museum. Since we are members at our local science museum, we were able to get in for free here, which was great! It makes our membership so worth it when we are out of town.
Here's Colby at the top of the indoor tree house where you come down a very twirly slide.
They have a great fenced in play area for the younger children. Here's Abigail in the tractor.
After saying goodbye to my friend, we journeyed to Tulsa to meet Dan, who was playing in a golf tournament with his best friend from grade school. While he was golfing, we went to Kaleidoscope Children's Museum. I'd have to say the kids didn't know the difference, but this was not the greatest display for a self proclaimed children's museum. But, they had fun anyway!
