Whirlwind Weekend--Part 2

On Saturday we took a short trip down Route 66 with sister-in-Law Cindy and part of her family. We ended up in Arcadia, Oklahoma, where we saw the Round Barn. There was a wedding reception going on that we "sorta" crashed--- now we didn't bother anyone but we did peek inside--really fun place for a reception. We also wandered around outside for a bit. The stairs lead up to the area that the reception was in. On the grounds were some tables so we had the"boys" pose for us. Brother-in-law Gregg, nephew Bradley and husband Mr. Ken. We headed down the road to "Pops" touted as a "must see Route 66 landmark." It is a 50's style diner with futuristic architecture and a gas station. They also have OVER 500 flavors of soda pop!!!! A 66 foot pop bottle. The girls.
The brother and sister-in-law.
The family minus the nephew.
He is taking the picture.
Oklahoma sunset. Ooooo Aaaaah.
As night fell the LED lights
came on. They would go from
solid lights to this multi-colored
bottle. What a fun place to see,
shop at and have dinner with the
family. Check it out if you are in
the area. TO BE CONTINUED....

  6. Oh wow. What fun you're having. Your smiles say it all...I'm sorry you couldn't snag a piece of wedding cake when you crashed, though.
