Planning the rest of July

Whew! I have a lot to get done today around the house, but I also have to make sure I get all my reservations for the summer taken care of! We're leaving for Wisconsin at the end of this weekend, and shortly after we come back, we'll have a freind from France staying with us through the rest of the month! Since he cut out the NYC leg of the trip, I'm trying to come up with as many fun things as possible for us to do while he is here. I plan to take him all sorts of places like WAL-MART.. lawl

I did get us a night at the Stockyards Hotel, though, so he can go see a rodeo and all that nonsense. We'll probably have lunch at the Lonesome Dove the next day, then head down to Glen Rose to go to Dinosaur Valley state park. It was really cool to see those dinosaur footprints in the river for the very first time, so I think he will like it. After that, we're going to Fossil Rim and taking a tour in the evening. We'll stay the night and take the behind-the-scenes tour the next morning, then head back down home. That's two days. Before we head to Ft. Worth, though, I'm thinking about bringing him up to Dallas for a day and staying at Tania's mom's place or somthing. They all would like to meet him, and that way we can hit the Ripley's Beleive it or Not on the highway between Dallas& Ft. Worth when we head to the stockyards XD

I really wanted to go to the Dallas Aquarium, but I think I'm the only person excited about it. Matt just said "Yay, fish. Whatever. -..-" And our freind has probably seen amazing aquariums before. Someone suggested I take him to the 6th Floor Book Depository Museum, but I somehow doubt he's interested in American history at all. As cool as the West End would be, we really hate travelling and parking in downtown Dallas.. so that day is kind of up in the air.

I do still need to look into rodeo tickets. They are most likely purchasable at the door, but I'll have to look into it.

I was thinking about going down to the Natural Bridge Caverns, but I thought they were just south out of Austin. They're actually just north of San Antonio, and I don't think we're going to go down there at all... so skip the caverns, probably. We thought about maybe doing Austin, but I'm not really sure what kind of ID some sort of foreign tourist would need to drink along 6th street


    Yaaaay! The con is over! Time to get ready for the next one! Sometimes, twitter just cannot contain all the things I want to say about a subject.…

  • Oh wow, I haven't blogged in forever!

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

  • November is almost over already?!?!

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
