Then we drove about 30 minutes outside of Tulsa to Stone Bluff Cellars Winery. Chris and I don't know a lot about wine so we decided to take a tour. It's a really beautiful place and they make all of their wines there. We learned all about the different types of grapes that they grow and how they make it. We also got to sample some of their wines and we did buy a bottle to take home.
Finally before heading home we stopped by the Hard Rock Casino in Tulsa. We are very unlucky people and never seem to win when we go to the casino. We spent forty dollars and won twenty. I've never understand why people gamble. I would much rather put my money towards something than just waste it away.
All in all it was a really good vacation. It was really nice to get out of town for a few days. It's always nice to come home though! We want to send out a HUGE thank you to my parents who watched all of our animals for us while we were gone. Thank you guys so much we greatly appreciate it. You guys are the best parents!!

After spending time with them we drove down to the downtown area to take a few pictures. We wanted to go to Cain's ballroom but there weren't any good bands in town that we wanted to see. We also took some pictures of Boston Avenue Methodist Church which was built in 1929 and has a tower that goes 255 feet high.
Last week Chris and I went to
The first day of our
After we got done with the aquarium we had lunch at Pei Wei which we have been hearing about from some of our friends. Needless to say the food was awesome and we left very full! Then we wandered around the Brady district which has some really neat local shops. Our final destination of the day was the Gilcrease Museum. I think that this was Chris's favorite thing that we did on vacation. Their whole downstairs was an archival collection where you could open up draw after draw and see artifacts.
Then I drug poor Chris to the Woodland Hills Mall for some shopping. We asked some locals where we should go for dinner and it was decided that we would go to Brother's Houligan. They serve a lot of food there so I would suggest if you ever go make sure and split your meal. Of course we needed to have some dessert and what better place for dessert than the Cheesecake Factory!

After:Since we are speaking of pets I wanted to bring up that the place where I work has a homeless guinea pig to give away. Someone dropped off a box yesterday at our back door with a note on it that said "Needs a home." This is the second time this has happened at work and I think that it is absolutely ridiculous! If you can't take care of your pets don't even bother getting one! It makes me so mad when people can't take care of their animals. Animals have feelings just like you and I and they don't deserve to have someone drop them off like their a piece of trash! So if anyway knows of anyone who would like a free sweet guinea pig we'd be glad to give him to someone who would love him. Chris and I can't adopt another one because it wouldn't be fair to Patches. Let me know by tomorrow if anyone is interested!
I was just reading in the paper about a family writing in on whether or not they should give up their pet due to financial difficulties. According to the Humane Society pets not only provide unconditional love and affection but they decrease stress, anxiety, and feelings of loneliness and can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. I know that pets can be a handful to take care of but please consider all options before getting rid of them! Our pets do really help us out!!
