This is going to be one of those posts that is so boring it makes you cry. Because everyone everywhere wants to read about someone else’s fabulous Spring Break.
Consider the alternative, friends. I could tell you how utterly depressed I am over mean-spirited politics and the price of gasoline. Or how I managed to overdraw my bank account trying to do too many things for these kids so they don’t hate me when they grow up. Hello, you might be a Gen Xer if…
The kids returned to school yesterday after a week off for Spring Break. During their holiday, we tried to pack as many activities in as we had time to do and could afford (ROLOL/COL). We went to the carnival on SW 29th and to the Science Museum one day. We visited Andy Alligator’s Fun Park and spent one day at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. The trip to the refuge included a stop by the world famous Meers Store where we stuffed down hamburgers and banana pudding.
If you’ve never been to the Meers Store, you really should try and go. It’s quite an adventure. It’s been featured on the Food Network and as an Editor’s Pick on Travelocity.
This is Juliette and Sullivan on top of Mount Scott. The wind really blows crazy in Oklahoma as witnessed by Juliette’s hair.
I’ve been to Mount Scott many times, but seldom in the spring. I was so impressed by all the bright green grass on the mountain. I closed my eyes and pretended I was someplace else far, faraway, like Ireland or maybe Ohio. Ha!
Fields of purple flowers — I’ve only seen them in the movies. What about you? Maybe I don’t get out much. These weeds will have to do. There were small patches of them all over the wildlife refuge. I’ll take what I can get.
I saw a lot of cattle behind barb wire on private land outside the refuge. Inside the refuge we saw a herd of buffalo sleeping and one longhorn. We got within 100 yards of a buffalo that was taking a little siesta. When he stood up to stand his ground we quietly walked away. =)
The Huffington Post recently published a story about Generation Z. The headline sounds an awful lot like some I’ve read about Generation X: “Generation Z Teens Stereotyped As Lazy and Unaware.”
