Dallas, Texas

Down Town Dallas

I'm wrigting this post because somhow I screwed up the blog and Lori had an entire posting for our visit to Dallas which was erased.-Nate

We had been planning this trip for months, and it was finally time. We flew out on Friday the 20th. We were talking to the gentlemen next to us on the plain and we was telling us about all the sites to see. Dallas was like nothing we expected, it was very big, very flat and very green.

As soon as we picked up our rental we drove straight to Haley and Eric's place, after visting with Haley and Zion for a bit (Eric was working) We decided to head up to Steph and Dan's. We were pretty hungry so we decided to stop at Burger Street. Nate ended up having lengthy conversation with the Manager, once he told the gentlemen that we were from Utah, born and raised Mormon, the man wouldn't have it, he kept saying " nah.. nah.. you ain't Mo'men" Nate continued to insist that we were. His perception of what Mormons are must have been alot different from how we looked.

Plus Texas is chuck full of Water Towers, ever city seemed to have several of them, this is a picture in Dan and Stephs neighborhood in McKinney. You can see one of the McKinney Water Towers in teh distance.

McKinney has the Tallest Communications tower I had ever seen, it must have been at least 200' if not taller.

Dan and Steph were kind enough to let us stay with them in their new home. It was wonderful to wake up everymorning and see Locke aka lil'dan kicking it on the couch with his blanky and a sippy cup watching TV, while the rest of us were either sleeping or trying to wake up.

We spent almost an entire day in Downtown Dallas- From the grassy knowl where JFK was shot, the West end and then up the 55 stories to the top of Reunion Tower. The only way to see Dallas.

It was awesome to get away and spend time with Dan, Steph, Rob and Haley and Eric. Dallas woudn't be a bad place to live, we'll see what happens in the next year.
