Now, my update……
We went to see the site of the Oklahoma City Bombing and the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum today. Visiting the site of the bombing brought back many memories of when that occurred and how frightening it was. The memorial that this city has constructed is beautiful. I hope that the pictures that I am attaching will help describe it better than I can in words. It is actually built on the site of the building that was destroyed. It is so sad to see the wall where memorabilia have been left to honor those who lost their lives that day.
We enjoyed visiting the Cowboy museum also. Part of this museum is dedicated to artwork depicting the old west and part of it actually houses artifacts from that period in our history. One section, the part dedicated to native Americans, was closed so we missed that. And, lucky us, it turns out that effective 9/1/2010 they started not charging admission on Wednesday’s and we picked a Wednesday to go!!
Cheyenne got to tour both of these with us and rode in the wheelchair with me (lazy, huh?). She is such an angel of a puppy though. Not a sound and friendly with everyone!! She certainly helps us meet new people everywhere we go!!
We will be leaving for Little Rock, Arkansas in the morning for a one night stay and then on to Memphis for two nights after that. On our way east to spend the next few months with family. Cannot wait to see those grandkids (and kids) of ours!!
I hope you enjoy the pictures. Be glad to answer any questions for you if you have plans to visit here soon.
