Mini Vacation

On Tuesday we went to Dallas for a mini vacation. We got a good deal for a single night at the Lorenzo Hotel, and we wanted to go see the Mexico show at the Dallas Museum of Art.

We left Tuesday afternoon, got to our hotel, and went swimming for a few hours before dinner at Village Burger Bar and dessert at Sablon Chocolate Lounge. Then back to our room.

Our room had a lot of mirrors.

Yesterday we got up and dressed and ate kolaches from downstairs before heading to the museum.  We spent almost four hours there. I had no idea that The Two Fridas was so big, nearly six feet by six feet.

On the way home we stopped for lunch at Golden Chick because we’d never heard of it, and they turned out to have amazing yeast rolls, so we brought two dozen home with us. It was a good decision; they went over well at dinner.


Travel Adventures

Today we drove to Dallas to spend half the night before getting up at 330am for our flight to Denver. 


On the way, the front passenger tire got an egg on the tread, so it was either go get a tire today or wait until we were ready to go home next week. 

We went today. And were told the wait would be about two hours. 

But while we were waiting, an old friend of mine and his family took us out to dinner at a Mediterranean buffet, which was delicious. 

So that was nice. 

When we got back to the hotel we went swimming for a bit, and learned that 90° is pretty chilly when you’re used to 50% humidity. 

I’m going to freeze my butt off in Denver. 

Which is why we brought jackets and pants. 

And now for a bit of a nap before dealing with TSA and my mother in a wheelchair.
