What We Did For Spring Break.

What We Did For Spring Break.

I don’t know about you but it seems like every time we try to plan something, something happens that means plans have to be adjusted.

What was suppose to be 3 days and 2 nights turned into 2 days and 1 night in Oklahoma City.

Our first stop was at the Museum of Osteology.

In truth I didn’t figure I would enjoy going there.  I’m not much in wanting to look at bones.

The display of flesh eatting beetles they have in the foyer of the museum is certainly not for one with a weak stomach. (My mother had the still camera and she didn’t take any of the beetles.)

Standing there watching them busy at work on the caracusses can be just a memorizing as a tank of fish swimming around.

It being Spring Break they had lots of activities for the kids, and there were even a few live animals that one could pet.

Next we went to the:

45th Infantry Division Museum

They close the Museum at 4:15pm and we got there at 3:30.

So we were speed walking around trying to see as much as we could before they close.

The outside part of the Museum we only saw what was around the Museum Building before we left.

Next we headed to the:

Oklahoma City Museum of Arts.

We spent around an hour and half looking at all the art that was on display on all three floors.

We stopped at Bedlam on NE. 5oth Street for dinner.  Didn’t think about taking pictures until the food was gone.

Next we went to Lincoln Inn Express Hotel to stay the night arriving at 7:30pm.

The next day we went to:

Oklahoma City Zoo.

We got there a few minutes before 9am and was there until noon.

Next going to the:

Science Museum Oklahoma.

We were there from noon to 4pm.

The Cowboy hall of fame was on our to do list but my dauhgter past on it so she could spend more time in the Science Museum.

The Science Museum added a lot of stuff they didn’t have when I was a kid.

My daughter wants to go back to the Science Museum cause there was a lot of stuff she didn’t get to see.

We are planning to go back where we spend a whole day just at the Science Museum.

 

That is a wrap for:

A Family Secret, Revealed.

My kids are always coming up with the darnest WHAT IF’s.

One of those What If’s was asking:

What we will do when my parents pass away?

My answer to that one has been for years-

We are going to have one big freaking Garage Sale.

Some of you might think the answer is a little on the morbid side, or your just down right horrified by my answer.  That is Ok.

It’s a very natural reaction.

Who wouldn’t be a little shocked to discover that a couple’s ony child is already making plans for when her parents pass away.

Do You Do, Garage Sales?
Do You Do, Garage Sales?

All family’s have a skeleton or two, in the closet they don’t want others to know about.

Which is why I have been giving my kids the same answer for years now.  I just didn’t want to have to deal with the Skeleton in my closet, yet.

You may not already know that from 13yrs to 16yrs old I ran a fruit stand with my parents.

The building still stands and has been used for storage for the past 20+yrs.

THE OLD FRUIT STAND. It takes seeing a rattle snake in the yard to put me into action of doing something that I've been putting off since 2014.

Yes, Folks I have a family member that is a Hoarder.

If you watch the video, please don’t bother asking if the R.V. is for sale or any of the other buildings you saw in the video.

They also are packed full of 20+yrs of stuff.

I will be getting to the other buildings in time.

Now you know about one of my skeletons in my closet.
