Oklahoma Bombing Memorial Site

We went to Dale and Amy's house for  Christmas this year.  They have a new, beautiful home and we all wanted to see it, so we spent the holidays there.  Every time we go to Oklahoma to see them, I want to go to Oklahoma City and see the bombing site, but we never made the time.  This time, we were meeting our good friends, the Hunts, there and what better to do with them than this?   We couldn't have picked a windier, colder day, but it was definitely worth the visit!

A little about the memorial.........It sits between two walls.  The first one says 9:01.  This is the time it all began.
Here is all the family listening to the guide tell the story.
Each chair represents someone who died.  The small chairs represent the children that died in the daycare center that was located inside the building.
9:03 is the time it all stopped.  It still amazes me what wicked people live in this world.  And this was small compared to 9-11.  Still makes me sad and sick to my stomach to think about it.  If you are ever in Oklahoma City, it is definitely worth the trip to see this.  They have a museum that is awesome right next to the memorial too.  So glad that we finally took the time to go.
Here is a picture of the Hunt family.  We love you guys!

And where is the picture of your family? I actually remembered when this happened. And I love the song by Garth Brooks about it.

What a good person to play catch up. I still can't figure my blasted camera out to put our pictures up on my blog. Can't wait to see you guys again in July!
