I hope you all had a Happy Easter weekend. We started our Easter weekend off with a fishing trip to Lake Tenkiller last Friday. We only caught two fish.
We went to Soda Steve's at Fin and Feather Resort for lunch. This is one really cool place, and the restaurant has fresh onion rings the size of hubcabs on a 1968 Buick. The real jewel there is its famous cheese fries that you must try. The hour drive is definitely worth it.
