Happiness is being outside

At least according to my dogs and I tend to agree. We are all really hoping that this nice weather sticks and that the Thursday forecast is just a mistake!

Below are Yoda and Spock’s top five favorite outdoor activities to do around Tulsa.

5. Visit the dog park. There are two off-leash parks to choose from, Biscuit Acres, 5804 E. 91st St., and Joe Station, 2279 Charles Page Blvd.

4. Take in a movie at the Admiral Twin. They are most looking forward to the release of “Monsters University” this June. Check out showtimes and more at selectcinemas.com.

3. Bark in the Park. Pooches are welcome to Wednesday night games at ONEOK Field. Be sure to bring along vaccination records and enter through the Oil Derrick or Arvest Entrance.

2. People watch from the patio at Cosmo Cafe.  Located on Brookside at 3334 S. Peoria Ave., there are plenty of dog-friendly patios located around Tulsa. Check out our directory on tulsapetsmagazine.com for more.

1. Actually, they really don’t care what they are doing as long as they are outside! And that’s the truth. I hope everyone is taking advantage of this beautiful weather before we all start complaining about how hot it is.
