Oklahoma City Birthday Trip!

Over this past weekend we took a trip to OKC for John's birthday other then him running a toll booth once and the zoo being way to hot we had a great time.  First we started out at the Botanical Gardens----very beautiful!  They are adding an area for children unfortunately they are still working on it----of course Sean wanted to run through it and John wanted to take pics of everything but it is beautiful in there (humid) just be sure you have a spare battery or you have charged yours overnight because half way through what do you think happened???? You have it the person wanting to take pics of every plant was not very happy :(  Next stop was the OKC zoo---well if you have been to the Fort Worth Zoo there is NO comparison if I had my choice of the 2 I would definitely pick the Fort Worth Zoo!  Granted it was still HOT outside we should have went to the zoo on Sunday after the cold front came through and did the Science Museum on Saturday since it was all inside----Next drip I am definitely going to plan according to weather look at the zoo maps to plan out where we go!!! Well back to the zoo OKC's zoo is very spread out and a lot of concrete!  I like the more realistic settings----we were there quite a few hours and I never did see the animals that I would like to have seen so maybe they were in a better setting....don't know but I know it was hot---they did have misters to walk through but the wind kept blowing the mist up and away..........  The Children's Science Museum on the other hand was GREAT!!!! Absolutely loved it!!!!  They have a whodunit section and it is all FORENSIC science and you get to solve the crime!!!! So much fun if you are into that sort of thing which I AM!!!!!! Loved it!  They also have an IMAX theater which is extra but worth it---EXTREME was playing on Sunday which was different extreme sports.  Would have preferred a different title but oh well they are still fun.  The Planetarium is included in the price of admission and who does not love the night sky?  They show sky from OKC view--what you would see that night from OKC without all of the light pollution.  They have a ton of hands on exhibits too the Tornado wind tunnel and the earthquake section was really cool too.  Totally recommend the Science Museum.
