2 Days in Texas

Saturday we arrived at DFW and promptly headed out to Sundance Square to start taking in the sights and sounds of Funkytown.  And DFW is neither in Dallas or Fort Worth but in nowhereville.... Funkytown was having a Hispanic fest so it was a wee crowded but it just added to the sights, sounds and colors. There was some great traditional dancing, with costumes.  We saw the angels at the Bass Hall, the 2 story sculpture in Barnes and Nobles, the cowtown mural on the side of one 4 story building, Leddys, Ryans, the last hotel JFK stayed in before his infamous trip to big "D". I found a purse I liked in Leddys, it was plastic with a neat picture of a girl on a horse. I thought "Cool!" until I looked at the price tag, $249!!! What up with that???
Of course the question of the day was where to eat... We went to Mi Cocinas off Sundance Square... it was rather noisy but the food was good. Afterwards we went to a Swedish chocolate store and I got fresh dark chocolate w caramel, E got peanut butter fudge and R got dark choc PB cups...Yummm!
Sunday was both open house day and rest and relax day. TLDC made poor mans lasagna, and sock it to me cake by request of moi... Some of the fam that could came by. We rested, visited, and watched the cows eat grass while sitting on the back porch.  Good times where had by all!!!
Updates on Monday and Tuesdays adventures to come!
