The Taylor Trailer

So I am barely squeezing in my summer catch up in before Fall begins!!! The summer months zoomed by!

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.....
We also visited the Sixth Floor Museum, which is the building that JFK was assassinated from. It is pretty eerie actually, being the room where such a huge piece of history happened. But it was time to go when Mom and I had to literally pull Dad out of the middle of Elm street because he was trying to figure out the trajectory of the bullet from where the car was to the window.

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.

There was a long line to sit at the desk, so J and I went together and in a rush I just sat on his lap to quickly take the pic. Of course J made some inappropriate comment about having his own Monica Lewinsky, hence, this moment.  The look on the security guard's face is my favorite. 
The First Ladies!
We had a great time with Mom and Dad; it's always fun to have your parents see what your life looks like when you live far away!  Miss them lots!  Love you Mom and Dad!
