We flew into Dallas and stayed 3 nights at the awesome Gaylord Texan resort in Grapevine where Bob's business would take place. Oh, how beautiful and big everything is in Texas. I love the classy rustic style of Texas architecture and the wide open spaces! I didn't realize just how much I missed it until I was there. The large atrium featured small versions of many famous Texas landmarks including the Alamo and the San Antonio Riverwalk. There were some elaborate model train displays and the breakfast buffets were to die for. I feasted on all the varieties of fresh and flavorful fruits, but especially the fresh giant Texas blueberries, blackberries and raspberries! (I will admit, however, that Korea's strawberries are still the best!) Wow, I miss the variety of produce and those sweet blueberry u-pick farms in Conroe!
Of course, shopping was plentiful in the area, but the best adventure was driving over to our old home and neighborhood in Flower Mound. I was amazed at the size of the trees in "our" front yard. When we bought this home in 1992, it was in a new neighborhood with small trees. We had a great backyard and have fond memories of building our own vegetable garden, a basketball court, our outdoor play-set with zipline, the pull-up bars, a putting hole and our swimming pool there. As I take a short trip down memory lane, I'm posting a few photos of our family's evolution during our time in Flower Mound.. (Love the 90's - even the hair is big in Texas.) We loved our time in Dallas! It was hard to leave this home and move back to Oklahoma, June of 1999. Things have changed so much in the area, and I really did not recognize our old stomping grounds. We stopped in to visit with our neighbors, the Grants, and had so much fun catching up with them that I didn't even take a photo!
