We decided to check out a place with the best view in the city for lunch and then the surrounding stores and museums. Our first stop was to the downtown library to get change to feed the meter.
|Tiny cafe attached to the downtown library...|
Next, we made our way into the Devon Tower. It was cool to see the oversized Christmas decorations in and around the tower.
|Giant Silver Pinecones|
|This would be an ideal place for a hidden camera...|
I was pretending to take a seat on this glossy "bench" when a good samaritan stopped me and yelled "Please don't!" I told her I wasn't (just posing for a pic). Nice to know there are good people still out there, huh? My purse strap touched the silent sheet of water overflowing the glassy pool. See the ripples?
Check out the views from Vast:
Afterwards, we went to the origin of a very famous Christmas song (around these parts anyway) and tried on watches we can't afford...
|Jewelry is the gift to give, 'cause it's the gift that'll live and live....|
We also checked out the OKC National Memorial. Scott and I were working together when this tragedy happened and in all of the time we've been back in Oklahoma, we've never actually visited the memorial.
We didn't have much time so we only toured the outside memorial. The symbolism was pretty cool, especially the framing of the moment Between 9:01 and 9:03.
|Hey, we were just up there!|
So nice to have some time together, just the two of us...
