St. Patty's Day Luck @ Winstar Casino

I'm never really suprised when my parents decide to take off on a whim.  The majority of our childhood was spent like that.  No months of planning...or travel arrangements to make ahead of time.  If they felt like going somewhere today, they stopped shop, locked up and took off.  No real plans, no set agenda... they just went.  This time, they were making it out to our neck of the woods!  Deciding on Sunday to leave that next day with my Aunt Lydia and Uncle Adan, they quickly packed their bags and headed north... to gamble away our inheritance ;P at Oklahoma's own Winstar Casino. 

It was pretty much a no brainer for me to decide to meet them up there yesterday.  I had vacation days from last year that were set to expire at the end of March... why wouldn't I take a day off to spend with my family?... and after having spent so much time working on the design for the newly expanded casino, a part of me was really curious to see it fully finished.   

I'm actually kinda impressed at the quality of my little 'two for one' verizon phone special....
It took some pretty awesome shots of some of these fountains! 

Next trip to Winstar and I'll definitely take our "good" camera.
