The Rebirth of Downtown OKC
Seventy degrees has me pulling out all my spring clothes and letting Jude wear shorts. The weather has been so blissfully lovely that we’ve found ourselves heading to the park more often, and with the renovation of the downtown OKC Myriad Gardens, we’ve been anxious to explore all the new nooks & crannies. The children’s area, in particular, has one of the coolest playgrounds I’ve seen in a long time with some extremely unusual play equipment.
The cranes have finally been removed from the new Devon building (below). I find myself looking forward to this year’s Arts Festival as it seems the energy of downtown is only increasing with each completed project. Simon and I have this little fantasy that we might have some cool little loft in the area that we could hang out at on the weekends, or for New Year’s, the Arts Festival… I fantasize about it being all white with modern furniture and pops of color in the accessories. Or, in contrast, a 1920s tiny bungalow that we could fix up with white marble countertops and exquisite hardware. We would walk back & forth to the coffee shop or to the park. Doesn’t it sound lovely?
Jude always sneezes right when we go outside. I adore this photo below.
Man, my pants look totally neon in this photo!
The tile thing that the kids are climbing on in the photo below make different chime sounds when they stepped on them. Just like BIG! #childofthe80s Yes, that’s right – TWO 1980s references in this post!
