Spring Break Recap

As previously mentioned I was quite the traveler over Spring Break, including a stay at the Roberts Hotel...aka my grandparents.  Traveling down to Oklahoma for a few days over my break has become a great tradition full of helping down at my grandpa's CPA office, eating lunch from Gripado's, a local sandwich & soup shop, and yes, going to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tulsa.

 I love going down there for so many reasons. First off, they are the coolest grandparents anyone could have.  My Papa can usually stay up past midnight easily.  Now this might includes him falling asleep while watching TV despite his protests that he's awake the whole time.  They're just so good at making you feel special and loved.  Grandmama teaches me how to knit and is very tech savvy, including sending text messages.  They let you sleep in as late as you want and are famous for the best pancake breakfast ever.  And let's not forget they take you to the casino.  Now don't get me wrong, I'm no gambling addict.  In fact, the only time I go is with my grandparents and I think that's what makes it so fun. 

I was assistant to the assistant during the week

They're quite a team!

My grandparents started me off with twenty dollars for gambling. (so who doesn't like it when it's not even your money?)  We stick to mostly penny and nickel slot machines and enjoy people watching.  I was on a hot machine for awhile where I had racked up over sixty dollars.  Then cashed out at fifty and somehow got it down to eight.  Then we hit the mother load!  We did something right that made the machine light up, ring the bell, and cause people around to turn their heads and look at us.  Got it back up to $45, gave Papa his twenty back and walked out a very satisfied customer with $25.  Grandmama talked me in to buying a new watch with my winnings.  A great souvenir.  Thanks for a fun week!  Looking forward to Spring Break 2013!
