Last post from Oklahoma!

We were busy every day in Tulsa. There is so much to do and with five grandchildren, lots of energy needed to do it. Ariella "Cookie" had her 9th birthday and we had a family celebration on the date. We also visited the Tulsa Children's Discovery Lab and the Gilcrease Museum - both excellent. This was the first year for Daniel, Ariella and Jonathan "Uzi" at the University School and we were impressed with the facilities and the amount and quality of work the kids did during our visit. They get tons of homework (well, maybe not Uzi). But a week was soon up and we were off to our next visit with Zoe, George, Nick and Tommy in Palo Alto!

That Maya, Heather, Daniel, Ariella, Jonathan, Scott and Shira

We visited the Tulsa Children's Discovery Lab 

First stop was to make things from recycled materials

Everyone dove right in and made a creative something

Heather took a brief rest on a bed of nails - ooch!

There was a big play structure and the exit was fast - that
is Ariella at the top, then Uzi, Maya, Daniel and Shira.

Ariella "Cookie" did some animation in
another area of the museum.

Another day we visited the Gilcrease Museum. This is a
fountain in the beautiful gardens.

This statue represents the warrior that sent an
arrow into the air on the death of the founder,
and himself of Indian heritage, Thomas Gilrease

Scott and I stopped by the October Fest, a big German
heritage Celebration on the river.

And here it is with the beautiful Birthday Girl

Maya models her new pj and bathrobe
combination from the Grandparents. We just missed her

And Cookie also models her new outfit
and looks very elegant.
