Sight Seeing

As I mentioned, Landon's cousin, Laura, came and visited us over the weekend. So, rather than spending my weekend working around the house, we took a trip around the metroplex to show Laura the sites. First stop ... IKEA! Okay, it's not really a tourist attraction, but Laura had never been to an IKEA, so we thought she needed the experience. And, of course, I picked a few things up while I was there. I'll show you my finds later this week.

Next was a stop for some great Mexican food! The weather was so great. It's hard to believe we were able to eat outside in January!

Laura is a big sports fan, so we also took a trip down to Fort Worth. The entire DFW metroplex is getting ready for Sunday's Super Bowl. ESPN was already setting up for their broadcasts , which will be live from Sundance Square this week.

And, after that, we hopped over to Arlington to see Cowboys Stadium. Apparently, a lot of other people had the same idea, because the traffic was crazy. But we were able to park at the Texas Rangers Stadium, which is next to it, and walk over to see all the excitement. The stadium was all decked out for the big game.

I'm actually pretty glad we took the trip, because we won't be heading down there next weekend. Our goal is to stay away from the crowds in Arlington, and watch the game at home. Do you have any big Super Bowl plans?
