This past Friday was a great day for love. We went to Tulsa to attend the wedding of a young lady and her beloved. It was a beautiful church ceremony and a really fun reception at the Hard Rock hotel.
Our son, Chris, was one of the ushers. This is him with a dear friend:
They had a photo booth set up at the reception so this happened:
Our 34th anniversary was last weekend but since we were going to be in Tulsa anyway, we decided to celebrate this weekend instead. Saturday we slept in after a rather late night. We decided we’d like to see the Women’s World Cup game so we found a sports bar/restaurant – Fat Daddy’s. I had read some reviews, one of which highly recommended the Reuben sandwich. I decided to go with that, along with onion rings. Both were absolutely delicious:
We ate and hung out for awhile watching the game. It wasn’t the most exciting game we’ve ever seen and since we were a little sleepy we decided to go back to the hotel for a little nap since we would up late again that night.
After a nice nap we went to Charleston’s for a light dinner (soup and salad) before heading to Shrine, a music venue where we had tickets to see “Let’s Zeppelin“, a Led Zeppelin tribute band. We had no idea if they’d be any good but the tickets were only $8 each so it was certainly worth a shot. They were surprisingly good and we thoroughly enjoyed the show. They were also really nice guys and we ended up chatting with them for awhile afterwards.
A friend of ours manages a food truck and it happened to be set up across the street from Shrine. After the show we went over to visit with her. It was well after midnight and we were a little hungry so we got some food from the food truck. It was exceptionally good and really hit the spot.
I think it was almost 3 a.m. before we turned in for the night so we didn’t get out of the room until a little after noon Sunday. Our food truck friend had recommended the Dilly Diner for brunch/lunch so we decided to give it a try. I love chicken and waffles so when I saw that on the menu that’s what I had to order. The food was really good and I love the fact that much of their food is locally sourced and all made from scratch.
After lunch we checked out a record store but didn’t find anything we couldn’t live without. We decided to head on home after that.
It was a nice little getaway and a fun way to celebrate 34 years of marriage.
