Obviously, just going to my home land - and our soon to be new home - was amazing enough. Yes, it started out with a whole catastrophe with our rental car - but it all worked out! The weather was gorgeous, and we even had a great thunderstorm one night! The real deal kind where they issue a weather warning. Not the Pacific Northwest kind where if you blink you miss the lightening part, and the thunder makes you wonder if it was just your stomach growling. It was the strobe light in the room, rattle the walls kind - and we LOVED it!
With both of us being lifelong, diehard Cowboys fan - it was a dream come true to go to a game in that new state-of-the-art stadium. It was breathtaking - literally, there are no words or pictures that could capture it - even a Cowboys hater would be in awe! Not to mention, it's refreshing to be cheering at the top of your lungs with thousands of other people in their Cowboys jerseys - doesn't happen much (or EVER) around here! I think Zach almost passed out from excitement several times! The game was amazing, but not nearly as fulfilling as watching my husband live out a dream!We did some neighborhood scouting on Monday, which was hugely successful and made us want to be there now! And I introduced Zach to Whataburger - which was glorious and torturous all at once. It's so delicious and so sad to think of how long we have to wait to eat it again! :) We also packed in a trip to the zoo and aquarium! The only downer to the trip was having to come home so soon.
