Saturday, my plans were highjacked.
I woke up early and finished my chores. The weather promised to be a perfect day of bright sun and high 60+ degree temperatures. I had plans for this special day, a day spent exploring the hiking trails at Osage Hills State Park .
In all reality, I probably should not have been out hiking feeling as poorly as I still do….but I so badly need to be outdoors! My sanity is at stake…..
A hiking trip was not to be though. I promised the boys, on the next nasty weather day or the next time we had to make a weekend trip to Tulsa, I would take them back to the Oklahoma Aquarium.
We ended up going to the Aquarium on my perfect weather day because we had to go to Tulsa to buy Bubba his new baseball cleets. He needed them by Monday and The Sports Authority is always a best bet to finding his size and a pair under $100.
Sunday’s weather was cold and would have been a much better day to be indoors at the Aquarium but my horse-shoer was scheduled. He showed up on time and did a wonderful job. I am very much impressed with the ‘natural trim’ he is doing on both Scooter and Freddie. Scooter’s hooves have always been in good condition but they are perfect nowadays with this new style of trimming.
I wonder how many people sit on that poor gator??
Wee One saw the starfish and he said, “hey, it’s Patrick Star!”
The eel was pretty cool.
Feeding the turtles was a BIG hit with both boys….watch your fingers!
The shark exhibit is my favorite. I can sit and watch them for a long time but that is hard to do with 2 boys who seem to always be on the move.
Sunday evening, Wee One and I watched “The Worlds 10 Deadliest Sharks” and “AirJaws” on the Discovery Channel before bedtime.
Strange thing: both Saturday and Sunday evening, I dreamed about sharks, one of my all time favorite movies “Jaws”, and in my dreams I was helping chief Brody chase down the monster Great White. I woke up this morning and read this in the news: ‘Jaws’ Star Roy Scheider Dies at 75.
I loved Scheider in the movie.
Of course I took a lot of photos of the sea horses!
We spent a lot of time looking at the jelly-fishes. Wee One calls them jelly-fishes and he watched them longer than any of the other exhibits.
When we stopped at the gift shop before we left, I told him he could pick out 1 thing. He chose a jellyfish.
After our aquarium trip, I took the boys to their favorite eating spot, McDonalds. Wee One was plum tired out. He dozed as we drove back into Tulsa from Jenks. We hit the sports store, found Bubba some cleets, and buzzed on home. We arrived just before dark. Scooter and Freddie were both besides themselves thinking they werent going to get their supper….like either one has ever missed a meal living with me, not hardly.
Sunday morning, hubs attended his church services. Wee One begged off saying he was going to ‘cry’ if he was made to attend his Bible studies. Wee One said he did not like it anymore, so I guess he’s a Bible School drop out.
The church is putting on a Valentine’s Dinner next Sunday evening. Hubs has asked nicely, if we could all attend. It appears, I’ll have to put on my happy social face on his behalf.
Wee One stayed home with me Sunday morning (his heathen mama). It was bitterly cold ouside, so we stayed inside until the horse-shoer showed up. We watched the movie, “The Last Mimzy “. It was an excellent movie! Wee One was enthralled watching it…..I have to admit, so was I. As far as movies go, this one is a A+.
Is it really Monday already?
Gah! I am so not ready to start this week…..maybe after a Sugarfree Red Bull, I’ll be ready to start the day.
