30 before 30 #12: Trip to Norman

Day One, Monday, March 16, Norman via Oklahoma City: It’s only a couple of hours drive from our place to Norman, so we took a leisurely drive, stopping off for some shopping in OKC along the way.

We spent the evening sipping hot tea and marveling at how abysmal cable television is. We watched an episode of Full House on mute.

Day two, March 17, Norman. We spent the morning at the Sam Noble Museum of Natural History, and then explored the OU Campus a bit. We got roped into some kind of filming that was happening on the street (which unfortunately involved “acting” on my part. He was like, you won’t have do do anything but stand here, except, maybe you, you’ll walk up and point. GRUMP.) and then we had a delicious lunch at Pepe Delgado’s.

New Converse. We both got our black converse 8 years ago and they barely functioned as shoes anymore. We generally get something we really need instead of souvenirs while we’re on vacation. The best way to remember a trip fondly is with something you will actually use.

I also got this cardigan because I completely forgot to bring anything long sleeved, even though I knew it was going to get cold and rainy.

We went back to our room pretty early to avoid any St. Patrick’s Day shenanigans.

Day 3, March 18, OKC Zoo.

On our way home we went to the OKC Zoo. I’d never been before and the last two-thirds of it was lovely. I hope that the rest of the zoo improves to that level because the older areas were very grim.
