Oklahoma Aventure to Meers and Mt Scott

One of my new years goals was to have 6 Oklahoma "experiences" this year. Now that its finally not 10 degrees all the time we can get started doing some! I've heard lots of rave reviews about Meers restaurant and had been wanting to try it out. And its close to Mt Scott, which I've never been to, so this was our first adventure. Michael's parents and Mema were able to join us, which made the trip even better! Paula made a scavenger hunt of things to look for on the drive down and while we were there along with prizes for finding things. So fun!

Michael's burger at Meers. It was huge! Mine was smaller and actually we thought it was better. It was a lot juicer!

 Oh my! I highly recommend the getting a cobbler, topped with a mountain of their delicious homemade vanilla ice cream. Ridiculous! The fries were nothing to rave about. We also got their fried green tomatoes, which I didn't think were that good. But I had a vanilla dr pepper in an icy mason jar that was delicious and the burger and dessert were great!

The burgers are made from their grass fed longhorns raise without added hormones- which is a big plus to me!

We got there before noon and didn't have to wait too long to be sat at a table. But when we left the line was wrapped inside and out the door! Crazy!

After lunch we drove to the Holy City of the Wichitas on the wild life refuge. They conduct the nation's longest running Easter passion play every year.

We drove around the refuge and saw prarie dogs, long horn cattle, and buffalo roaming!!

Our family at the top of Mt Scott. The 2nd highest elevation in Oklahoma.

Best buds!

 Kind of... :)  The views were really pretty from the top and looking out it didn't look like we were in Oklahoma at all!

It was such a fun day and I definitely recommend going if you get the chance!
