Saturday we visited the zoo. They had finished the elephant exhibit and had the new baby elephant, Malee, on display. She was so cute! I enjoyed watching her awkwardly walk around and run after her mom. She never ventured too far away. This was also the first time we went through the Oklahoma Trails exhibit. Very cool. A highlight for the kids was riding the Swan paddleboats. Kinley told me this was the best part of the day, which was awesome, and that her life had been pretty wonderful so far!
After the zoo, we visited the mall, ate some more, and let the kids swim at the hotel. Sunday brought another visit to the mall to return some things and then we met my mom in Weatherford so the kids could go visit them. Steven and I drove back to the City for a mom and dad night out in Bricktown. We ate at Jazmo's Bourbon Street Cafe (very good) and people watched on the canal.
Today we headed back home. Going through Piedmont, we passed through tornado damage. We also passed through the damage on I-40 when going to Weatherford. It was amazing to see what damage those storms did and the wide swath they cut. It's really hard to imagine a tornado that is a quarter to half a mile wide.
This trip was a lot of fun and a great way to kick off the summer!
