Traveling Tuesday

Big D!

As the move gets close for my daughter and family, I managed one more trip to this wonderful city called, Dallas!  On this last visit we took the opportunity to visit The State Fair.  A first for me!

Corn dogs,french fries, cotton candy, ice cream (yes, we tried it all) were delicious. The show stopper was this ear of corn......

Butter bean enjoyed every kernel of this and wouldn't move on until it was all gone! ha

We fed the goats, petted the baby pigs (wanted to take one home), watched the dogs perform and even rode the four wheeler:

Next on the visit was a trip to the Pumpkin Village at the Arboretum. You really must put the Arboretum on your vacation list of places to see. The grounds are manicured to perfection and every season brings such beauty.

Dallas will always hold a very special place in my heart. I have many, many wonderful memories of the city and spending time with my family there. My daughter became engaged, married and had a precious daughter in this city.

And now as they move to Arkansas to start a new chapter of their lives.....guess what? I'll have another wonderful grandchild born in Arkansas....yes, in May!!!! Life is good!

What wonderful photos! Your grandbaby is adorable and how fun it must be to experience wonderful new adventures with her. And congratulations on the upcoming birth of another grandchild! My daughter brings a friend's baby here so I can rock and cuddle him, thats as close as I can come to a grandbaby for now...except of course the granddog.
