saturday fun

Saturday was great. First thing we headed downtown to the Paseo Arts district for their annual arts festival. This guy from IL named Jest was my favorite. Love his display with the altered Barbie dolls. I bought a couple pair of earrings and a necklace from him. Some refer to him as the Barbie doll man. He has been coming here for 13 years.

Then it was off to Crabtown in Bricktown for some birthday crab meat...forget about cake! It was our first time there and we will definitely be back.

After dinner we walked around Bricktown. We absolutely love it down there. Here are some photos of the huge bronze sculptures down by the water. I shot DH in front of one so you can see the scale of these.

I think they are 10 times the size of man.
Notice the sky in the background.

They are depicting the Great Oklahoma land rush.

DH wasn't liking the look of the clouds. I was loving the coolness of the air. It wasn't 10 minutes after we got back to the car that this happened. It hailed like crazy...which is why we left my car at home. We took shelter, along with many others, under the roof at the gas station.
It was the perfect day.

Happy belated Birthday!

We need to go back to bricktown and just walk thru it. We are usually in such a rush when we come to the city there is no time to just walk around.

Have a happy rest of the year!
