We were so lucky to be able to stay another night with our friends. We went to a delicious breakfast place, where we ate a Mexican style breakfast. The coffee was sweet and foamy the best I (Candace) have had for awhile.
After breakfast, we headed for the National Park Memorial of the Oklahoma City. On April 19, 1995, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building was bombed killing 168 people. At this memorial site their was 168 chairs to symbolize all the lives lost. (Photo Below) In the federal building that was bombed there was also a daycare. Those children were represented by smaller chairs, that had little Easter bunny as a gift left on their seat.
After the National Park Memorial, we went to fly a kite. One would think flying a kite in Oklahoma is a common thing to do, however that isn’t exactly the case. Since winds can get up to 30+mph it can be difficult to fly a kite. However the winds were a little more calmer than normal so it allowed us to fly. Candace and I both were able to get the kite up in the air after some help. Now the kite stayed in the air a few seconds before it crashed back into the ground. Kite flying is an activity that needs lots of practice and wasn’t as easy as I (Sarah) thought it would be.
We then grabbed tacos at this place that has a “plead the fifth” taco. Everyday this taco changes and you never know what the ingredients will contain until you get it. Both Candace and I got it, and it was quite good.
Towards the end of the evening we went to a birthday party of the woman who we were staying with. We had traditional Hawaiian foods which were so tasty. We met some really awesome cool people too. We are so lucky to be meeting so many amazing wonderful sweet people along our journey!
