I’m taking the boys to meet up with my sister-in-law and her two sons in Oklahoma City to go to the zoo and wander in the 97 degree heat and look for animals that will be smarter than we are because they will have taken shelter while we stand outside and bake and say over and over again, “Aren’t we having fun, kids?”
If we survive our morning, we’re then going to the giant house of pizza and arcade games where the kids will free range and the moms will collapse set up shop at a corner booth and pass out quarters until we’re broke. After that we’ll head over to the National Cowboy Museum because it’s indoors and cool educational and we’ll try not to get kicked out of the museum gift shop.
Fortunately, this one shouldn’t have wind chimes.
After we’re finished there, we’re stopping by the airport to pick up reinforcements Mr. CPQ who is joining our traveling three-ring circus and I could not be happier and I have already rehearsed my “Welcome to Oklahoma” speech when I see him exit the airport doors.
It’s going to be somewhere along the lines of “Tag! You’re it!”
Have a nice day.
