So this summer, Mom and Dad came to visit for the 4th of July weekend! This was Dad's first time, but I barely even count Mom's first visit, as I was in bed for most of it! So this time, we finally got to show them the Big D! First, we hit up the Ft. Worth Stockyards! My grandfather was a horse trader growing up and he went to the stockyards all the time, so it's always special to go there. We enjoyed the "shoot out", the longhorn parade, and of course, the BBQ!
|Pretty sure that if my dad lived in Ft. Worth, he would steal John Wayne's job.....|
|If we can't live in Mississippi, I think Texas is next best.....|
The next day, we all went to the new George W. Bush Presidential Library. It was very interesting, the "Situation Room" was super fun but my favorite part was definitely the replica of the Oval Office. Everything, down to the pictures on the desk, is completely the way it was when President Bush was in office.
