More of our summer in Burleson August 5, 2008

Filed under: Family Updates — Talin @ 8:54 pm

We promised more pictures and an update on the summer, so here we go…

You saw from one of our previous posts that we celebrated our 3rd anniversary, but also on that same day was Amanda’s Uncle Ronnie’s birthday. Some of the family came over to Carter and Susan’s to celebrate with brownies and striped delight (which are quite delicious when eaten together).

We traveled to nearby Granbury for our anniversary vacation and stayed in the Pomegranate House. It was a nice and beautiful little bed and breakfast that had amazing chocolate chip cookies and other desserts. Out room was just recently remodeled and was very nice.
Granbury is a cute little town with a historical square with places to shop and there is even a nice little sand beach to go swimming in the lake, which we did, but don’t have any pictures to prove it.

In one if the little shops in Granbury, we happened to find the perfect new collar for our dog. He needed a new one.

Now Davy is a big Cowboys fan like the rest of the family!

Nicole and Steve came to town after I finished with my rotation and since we weren’t able to go on a real cruise because of Nicole’s work schedule, we went on a Murder Mystery Dinner Cruise on Lake Granbury. The scenic view was pretty, the food was good, but the show was kinda cheesy and sometimes the actors forgot their lines…but we had a great time together anyway celebrating Festivus for the Rest of Us!

On the boat with us were a VERY LOUD group of women that decided to have a ladies night out and were bringing Nicole and I to the point of near suicide with all the noise they were making.

Saturday we went to Fort Worth to the Museum of Art, the Water Gardens, and to the Historic Stockyards.

The water gardens were really cool, except that it was very hot and swimming and wading were not allowed, but we had fun splashing each other.

After all that, Amanda and Nicole wanted to eat at Campo Verde. They have a train that runs on a track suspended from the ceiling that comes by every so often, so we all decided to guess how long it takes the train to make a full circle around the restaurant. Amanda was the closest and only off by 2 seconds (it took 3:20 and she guessed 3:22).

After eating, since the new Cowboy stadium was just down the road we decided to drive by it and see how it is progressing. It is HUGE and an amazing feat of architecture. It will be fun to go see them play there someday. Maybe the ticket prices will come down…doubtful.

And now we are back in old Lubbock and getting readjusted.

Thanks for reading our blog…enjoy!

    Cute pictures, and yes I already miss you guys! Maybe your next rotation can be Huguley Hospital.

    Mike and I went to Granbury this past weekend. It was HOT! But the music show on the square “Jukebox” was great. This summer teachers are free! We also shopped the square for some treasures.

    Keep an eye on that fence jumping dog!………Aunt Pam

    You two should look at my facebook. We went to the Dallas Cowboys’ Training Camp here in CA a couple of weeks ago. It was a really cool set up. Closest thing to going to a game! I wish we could have been home and gotten to hang out with you two more, but I guess that’s part of growing up. Hope you enjoy you few weeks off!

    Does being back in Lubbock mean y’all aren’t going to post to your blog anymore? Because that would make me sad.
