Tulsa Excursion Day 3

I know that everyone has been waiting with baited breath to hear about our last and final day in Tulsa; so, here it is. We didn't have a whole lot planned for our last day in Tulsa. We decided to go to their local farmer's market and check out some more local shops. Their farmer's market isn't as nice as Fayetteville but it was interesting to see how another big city did theirs. After we finishing there we headed downtown to take some pictures of some neat looking buildings. That's the one thing that I wished that Northwest Arkansas had more of.
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!!

Who knew Tulsa could be so beautiful? I've never been up that far, maybe Alan and I will need to take a trip someday.
