We had dinner at my favorite mexican restaurant in Bricktown and then headed to the game. The restaurant served heart shaped sopapillas in honor of the day.
I worked for the New Orleans Hornets in college while they were displaced to Oklahoma City after Hurricane Katrina. My old boss and a couple of the people I interned with are now working for the OKC Thunder. Kasey and Jason had it arranged to say Welcome Baby K... on the jumbotron! I was so excited to see it up there on the big screen!
The next morning we walked around the OKC bombing memorial. It was a tragic day for our state and the memorial is a beautiful tribute to those that lost their lives.
The spirit of this city and this nation will not be defeated; our deeply rooted faith sustains us.
We ended our trip with cupcakes. There is a really fun cupcake bakery/candy store in the area called Pinkitzel.
They sell really cute gifts and I drooled over this party bunting.
My strawberry cupcake was really, really yummy!
It was really nice to get away even if it was only for one night. We had a great time together!
