Southfork Ranch

It was a beautiful day, one of the best days! We caravanned eastward with some friends and spent the day at Southfork Ranch. Famous for being the place where portions of the show “Dallas” was filmed. There was a gun show going on in the event center there, so we walked through and checked it all out. I ended up buying jalapeño almond toffee… at the gun show. 😂 So me!

Then we took the tour of Southfork Ranch. We had a great tour guide and a wonderful docent. Such interesting stories about the place. If you want to drop $2k, you can spend the night in the mansion. I was surprised to find out a couple years ago that the ranch was actually not all that far from us. I especially loved their miniature donkeys and miniature horses. I know I said it already, but what a beautiful day!

Date night!

The Husband and I had a date night on Tuesday. My face hurt from laughing, and we enjoyed the movie, too. So much fun!

Happy Easter weekend!

Our city had a “block party” yesterday. They had the police, firemen and even a SWAT team out with their vehicles for citizens to meet, greet and learn. The In-n-Out food truck was there and tons of vendors set up in the gymnasium.

It was such a beautiful day with friends, and we visited the playground afterwards to run off some energy!

Last night, we dyed Easter eggs and this morning was the Easter egg hunt.

So thankful for our Lord and Savior who we celebrate annually on this day!
… and now we’re preparing for Tuesday, minus one. Where did the weekend go in such a hurry?

The 1900s

The child: Did you know the first Toy Story movie was made back in the 1900s?
Me: What????
The child: Yeah, like way back in 1995!
Me: 😳🤣 That is NOT what I think of when someone says the 1900s….

Fridge laugh

The child: Can I have a fridge?
Me: No.
The child: Please?
Me: No.
The child: I want a fridge!
Me: No.
The child: I want a fridge with an Alexa in it.
Me: No! That’s creepy! But I am curious, why do you want a fridge?
The child: I could put my spaghetti in it!
Me: Ha! You can get a fridge when you’re older.
The child: How much older?
Me: When you’re 21.
The child: But that’s so far away …
Me: Huh. No, it’s not.
The child: Can I have a fridge today?
Me: No.
The child: Daddy will buy it for me.

Two hours later…
The child: Daddy, can I have a fridge?
Husband: No.

Me: 😀

(By the way, he didn’t really want a fridge. He just wanted me to laugh… which I did. :D)

Dallas Arboretum Blooming Good Time

We’ve been meaning to get over to the Dallas Arboretum. They have so many acres of tulips blooming, but life keeps happening. Next year, we hope to go a little earlier in the season to see MORE tulips.
