Ode to Oklahoma City

After visiting Oklahoma City this past weekend to honor a cherished family member's life, I am reminded of my very first visit to the home of the "Land Run".  It was definitely a memorable trip.  Here are some highlights from our 2010 visit. 

First was a trip to the Oklahoma City Zoo. 





Then a quick stop at the Capitol building. 


We even found some modern architecture in a neighborhood near the Capitol!!


Then we stopped by Bricktown which was one of the city's Metropolitan Area Projects  intended to rebuild the city's core with civic projects to establish more activities and life to downtown. 


Historic Route 66 also runs through Oklahoma City and you can find some super cools spots along the way.  Like Pops and the Round Barn in Arcadia.



An amazing all wood construction, dome included



We couldn't visit Oklahoma City without visiting the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum honoring those lost in the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in downtown OKC.










It was a great trip and we will always have a special place in our hearts for Oklahoma City.
