As I posted here, I find spring break to be a little frustrating as a parent. It's not easy to keep my kiddo happily occupied for 17 hours a day for 10 straight days in a row. In fact, for as much as she claims to love days with no school, it sure doesn't take much time at all for her to start declaring how bored she is.
To occupy a few of our days, we set out on a little road trip. While I would have loved a more elaborate vacation, it just wasn't meant to fit in our schedule or our budget at the moment, so a little trip would have to do.
We spent a day and a half in Oklahoma City, OK and a day and a half in Tulsa, OK. It was about 3 hours each way, which was totally managable and kid friendly.
This mama really wanted to go to Dallas, (can you say hello to amazing shopping?!) but spring break is about the kids, and I don't know many 7 year olds that want to spend their spring break at the mall.
In Oklahoma City, we went to the zoo and the Oklahoma Science Museum. Visiting the zoo was the highlight in my book, because it was a sunny 80 degrees outside and I was loving it!
Here were a few of our favorite little creatures:
What? You didn't really think I was going to show you animals when I have these two cute little girls, did ya?
In Tulsa, we also visited their zoo. You can never have too much zoo time!
This is definitely a fake smile if I've ever seen one!
Uh oh...my sweet girl is starting to think some things are embarrassing.
I asked her to take a picture with the statues and she refused.
She told me to do it instead, and she'd take my picture.
My pasty winter skin could use some sunshine, stat!
Looking at all the animals is exhausting!
