Just a few weekends ago, while daughter Trinidad was out-of-town for a marching band competition, my husband Jody and our three younger children – Rane, Eva, and Zack – made our way to Oklahoma City to attend the annual Plaza District Festival.
While I worked on gathering video, photos and interviews for an assignment, my family enjoyed the festival and my husband met with a few of his old friends…
Oklahoma City’s Plaza District is home to art galleries, studios, retail shops, restaurants, and creative services. Once blighted by urban decay, the Plaza District now boasts a renewed energy.

I got a tip there was going to be a flash mob – and it sprung up right in front of me a few minutes later
I had to back up over a curb while videotaping to get out of the way of the dancers
Artist Rawb Carter – another boyhood friend of my husband
Photographer Cliff Brown – yet another friend of my husband from long ago!
I loooove the pink heffalump!
I felt exactly like this at the end of the day
You’d never know the day had begun all rainy and gray
