Anniversary Getaway

Last weekend the hubs and I celebrated our anniversary with a little 24-hour getaway. There's a place in Drumright called Tidal Schools Vineyards that I've always wanted to go to, so that was our end destination. We did, however, make some other stops along that way that made for a very interesting little trip!

We went to the vineyard on Saturday, but (for some reason) I decided we should stay the night in town on Friday. Not my greatest idea. The best place to stay used to be an old hospital, but was "converted" into a motel. As you will see, they didn't change much...

Drumright Inn & Lodge

We were in the room in the middle, 130. Yeah, now you're getting the creepy hospital feeling, huh?

There was a little hallway when you walked into the room. The first opening on the right is a random kitchen and the second opening is the bathroom. Then straight ahead is the bedroom.

Hellooo hospital room!

I'm pretty sure we stayed in the room where they kept the crazy people because there was this little safe/unsafe dial on the wall. Which also had a creepy window next to it. Thankfully, the other side of the window was a closet for the room. But still, pretty creepy!

An overview of the room. You can see the weird window on the wall. We put something in it to try and make it just a little bit less creepy.

The hubs later found this in the hallway portion of our room. So we're just gonna go ahead and tell ourselves that maybe we stayed in the labor and delivery area...

We eventually fell asleep in the loony bin and checked out early the next morning! We then headed out to Stroud to have breakfast at one of our favorite places, Rock Cafe. It's a Route 66 classic. In fact, Sally from the Disney movie "Cars" is based off of the owner and cook at this restaurant.

The hubs added our initials to the bathroom wall. Hopefully it won't be another three years before we get to go again.

After breakfast, we spent some time just wandering around...doing a little geocaching and finding random Route 66 fun (we're kinda Route 66 junkies).

The Shoe Tree! Which is exactly what it sounds like. A tree where people toss their old pairs of shoes.  We brought one along to join in the fun!

Us in front of the Shoe Tree. There used to be a lot more pairs, but the original one fell down. So this is the second shoe tree started on that road.

Geocaching out in the middle of nowhere.

The middle of nowhere was really pretty!

After our afternoon adventures, we finally made it to the winery! It was a lot of fun. We had a tour of the facility, free wine tasting, lunch while a jazz band played, and then just relaxed on the patio and around the vineyard.

Despite all the craziness we encountered, it really was such a fun time with the hubs. And really, the random craziness is what made it so fun and adventurous. I love my time spent with him and am so happy we've been married for three wonderful years!

Looks like you guys had a great time! I hope you didn't pay more than $20 a night for the hotel ;)

That hotel looks like something from a horror flick. It gives me the creeps and I didn't even have to stay there! Looks like you had fun, regardless.
