On a beautiful Saturday in April

The weather yesterday was beyond gorgeous and Robert and I just knew that the only thing to do was to be outside. We decided to go to the ArtWalk festival at RiverWalk Crossing in Jenks.

We couldn't have asked for a better day, we had lunch on the patio at Los Cabos with a beautiful view of the river and City Plex Towers on the other side:

There were lots of things and people to see. There were several different groups of musicians playing along the walk:

We saw some of the areas more talented residents:

This guy's name is Yusuf Etudaiye and he has a pottery studio in McAlester, Etudaiye Studio. The weather yesterday was very pleasant but I don't know how he survives the Oklahoma summers with all that hair.

Here is a crappy picture of some of his work on display at the festival:

As with all of the pictures, you can see a little better if you click on them.

We saw some of the areas cutest residents:

And we saw a few of the areas more colorful residents:

Yes, those are fishnet stockings...(?!)

We named this woman Boobie McBooberson:

And this guy looks like he might be Northeastern Oklahoma's very own version of Dog the Bounty Hunter:

And finally:

I know, I know, I'm horrible. But doesn't it seem like some of these people were just begging for attention? So I really didn't have any choice but to oblige them, now did I?

Maybe I better just stop now and get thankful about a few things:
1. I am thankful for festivals on the river.
2. I am thankful for being able to spend an amazing Saturday afternoon with the man I love.
3. I am thankful for sweet tea with lemon.

Great pictures, and yes, they were just asking for attention. You really had no other choice.

One thing I notice in these photos is all the people in short sleeves and shorts; ahhh the weather must have been perfect.

Amy: love the photo essay of your afternoon out.

Boobie McBooberson. heh heh.

It looked a fantastic time... we did something similar this weekend down the waterfront but (snif) I forgot my camera.

Wow! Your last 2 posts and photos make Tulsa look so cosmopolitan and beautiful. And it looks like such nice weather here.
Too bad it will be so beastly hot in a month!

Oh, that looks like it was a lot of fun! We love going to the Riverwalk. The weather had been gorgeous the last couple of days. Hope it stays this way a little longer.
