We arrived home from Texas last night after a full schedule of doing the touristy thang! I have to speak with a twang now you know. Actually being in northern Texas we didn't hear too much of the real southern drawl but enough to make it fun. We had great non eventful flights down which are the best kind and was glad to see our driver waiting for us when we got off the plane. It was just a short 15 minute drive to the hotel and that was mostly due to traffic as it was about 4 o'clock. We went to a great steak house the first night called Cool River and if you are ever in Dallas be sure to go there for the ribs........to. die. for!
The next day we went to Fort Worth which is about 45 minutes away. Actually we went there every day while we were in Texas, there is a lot to do and see and we wanted to see it all. First we went to the Cowboy Hall of Fame and it was soooooooo interesting. I would love to have a bench like this here at home!! Isn't it gorgeous?
This is one of the many pictures we saw. This is Dr. Billy Graham, one of my all time favorite preachers receiving a pair of boots.
Twice a day they herd a herd of longhorns down the street for the tourists to take pictures. It was fun seeing these huge steers walking calmly by. They know the routine by now.
This is Big Jake. He was just wandering around with one of the cowboys. I did get on him for a few minutes to get a picture. It's on Hubby's camera and I haven't downloaded it yet.
Hubs was glad to run into John Wayne, one of his favorite movie stars. I didn't tell him it wasn't the real John Wayne.
There was just so much to see in the Hall of Fame, we spent quite a bit of time there wandering around reading all the information. There was a great George Strait exhibit that I will try to put in next time. We went into several shops to look around and of course I had to buy T-shirts for the grand kids.
That night we went to a restaurant called Texas, Love and War. The food was delicious and they actually cooked my steak enough so that it wasn't mooing! I'll tell you we had us some goooood food in Texas!
Guess I'll stop here and try more tomorrow. Will be getting around to see all of you to see what you have been up to while I was gone!
