Zippy's Adventures in Oklahoma
We've had a lot of fun in Tulsa and Broken Arrow.
Zippy came and met the cats and the new puppy Hershey. Even camera shy Twitch allowed a picture with Zippy! That is one popular Lobster!!
The boys took Zippy to Bass Pro Shop. Zippy had a lot of fun playing with the animals ..he really liked scaring the black bear! He was a bit annoyed that the picture of the bison didn't come out. I can't say as I blame him. Come all the way to Oklahoma and pose with a Buffalo and Samuel forgets to use a flash! Hmm I told him that's teenagers for you!
I took him to see the Arkansas River, after I convinced him that it really WAS the same river he'd seen in Arkansas, he was really impressed.
We also saw The Golden Driller and met my Pharmacist. He was more than happy to pose with Zippy. He was really proud of Zippy for all the work he's doing for raising money for research for pediatric brain cancer.
Yesterday, I took him by the gravesite of my friends daughter. Zippy was very saddened by that, but realized that was why he does all the traveling he does. He doesn't want one more family to have to bury their child from that awful disease.
Today (no pictures yet) we went to ORU and saw the praying hands. Zippy really isn't sure what to think of that. I told him that it was ok, because no one in Tulss is sure of what to think of those either, no matter what their beliefs are.
We went to the top of the Cityplex tower and looked down. top of 60 floors and Zippy said "WHOA Lobsters don't belong this high!"
We took pictures with my favorite Dj's! They let me back while they were on the air!!
They thought Zippy was the neatest thing! I even got a free CD out of it!
I would have let Zippy tell the story, but right now Zippy is sleeping.
He'll tell the rest of the story when we get the rest of the pictures up.
