Tulsa Excursion Day 1

Last week Chris and I went to Tulsa, Oklahoma for a couple of days. We had been debating on where to take a vacation this year or if we would even take one. We’ve been taking Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University at our church and have been putting all of our extra money towards debt. Dave always says that you have to “live like no one else, so you can live like no one else” later in life. So this year we decided to go somewhere close and go somewhere nice later. You’d be surprised with all that Tulsa has to offer.

The first day of our Tulsa vacation we went to the Oklahoma Aquarium which is really located in Jenks. We have been to that aquarium several times before but there was a new exhibit that was pretty interesting. Going to any aquarium is my favorite part of the trip. I could spend all day looking at the fish, but that wouldn't be very fair to Chris.

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!

Sounds like fun! Mike and I went to Tulsa in January. We went to the aquarium and loved it! Can't wait to hear about the rest of the trip!
