Default Loving OKC!!!

Thanks Everyone for the wonderful suggestions of "what to do in OKC" We arrived a week and a half ago...and are here for another 3 weeks (husband is in training here and the kids and I tagged along) and I just have to say- I love your state and your city!!! Everyone here is so friendly and nice. There are beautiful green plants and trees all around and so much to do and see! We just love it here! Everyone in Colorado (where we are from), said "you're going to Okla-Homa?? (add much sarcasm)" So I was a bit nervous, but I don't know what they were talking about- it's so nice here! And I'm very prepared to go home and tell them how nice it really is here! Humidity and all!!! Y'all (LOL) have a very nice state! We have been on 2 nature walks - one had a small pond with turtles in it...and lots of natural plants and bugs to look at and observe (the 5 year old loved that!)...and Lake Hefner...watching the kite surfers...and the catamarans...and we brought our small catalina sailboat, so were able to partake in sailing. Everyone at Hefner was so friendly and nice! We went to Bricktown and the kids played in the fountains (as reccommended to me) and the kids had a ball! We are planning on the zoo this week- the new movie theatre in Moore, the omniplex, and are thinking about venturing to the Turner falls. Anyway- just had to let everyone know- OKC is awesome!!!!!

Thank you for posting that. We're so glad you're having a good time, and it sounds like you've picked all the best places to go. Glad your kids are having a good time, too, because entertaining kids can be tricky. If y'all like to ride, you can hit the stables at Thunderbird Lake outside of Norman. We've done it a couple of times, and the trail is nice.

Have fun, and keep us posted on your adventures!

Alright! I am glad you've enjoyed your time, that's really great to hear. Yea sorry we don't have any mountains like Colorado. Most people act like it's a bad thing not to have mountains. You always hear from people that have visted "it's flat." well, ok and your point? lol. I personally find nothing wrong with the plains. But that's nice to hear and just ask if you need any more information on anything.

There are plenty of hilly/smaller mountainous areas of Oklahoma. Glad you are enjoying things Marie!

Nothing major. Yes we have hills and some mountainous areas but nothing compared to Colorado. My point was just because we don't have the rockies most people seem to think it's instantly boring. Mountains are just mountains.

My point was that it is not flat and she can enjoy a climate that is more similar to Colorado inside Oklahoma.

Oh- Horse Riding would be lots of fun! Thanks for suggesting that- we just may have to do it!! Yeah- there aren't mountains, but I'm enjoying a different kind of climate and scenery...in Colorado, we have the huge beautiful mountains, but we do not have the LUSH green, thick "planty" areas like you guys do! You can see through all of our trees. I love all the green vegetation in Oklahoma to explore! The friendliness of the people is what sticks out to me most though- everyone is just so nice! Oh- someone asked if my husband is at Ft. Sill - and no- he's with the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration). He has been here since April and won't come home until the end of August! This is why we wanted to come out for a month- the kiddos miss their Daddy! And I like it so much that we just might tag along for every training he has to take...(hmmm...not sure what he'd think about that though LOL)!!! Okay- and today ... off to the zoo!!! Thanks again everyone!

You should take your kiddos to the Omniplex right next to the zoo. When I was teaching, I took my students there each year for the great hands-on science activities.
