What a day we have had - for that matter just a great weekend!
We arrived on Saturday afternoon to check in to our hotel - and we already had acquired a great rate for the hotel where the job conference was being held, but then they upgraded our room too for free! So that was a treat! We settled in and then headed to the beautiful pool they have here and played for a while there before getting ready to head to supper.
We went to The Salt Lick - a BBQ place that Rachel Ray has featured - and the food was amazing!
Most of Sunday, Robert was tied up with the job conference so the kids and I were on our own to trek out to the Children's Museum - and would you believe it was the one day of the year you can get in free!? I could not believe it! So we were thrilled and the kids had a blast....
After that, Robert joined us and we trekked back out to Magnolia's Cafe about a mile away and stopped at a huge Candy store on the way back, and then stopped for some Amy's Ice Cream - wonderful!! After that we headed to the Bat Bridge where the largest urban bat colony in the US resides for the summer. It was fun waiting and listening to them talk to each other, and then finally they all started coming out - there were tons - well more like 1.5 million bats!!
So we are finishing up here - Robert has 4 interviews today and then we head back to Honey Grove. He interviews with Dr Pepper this Thursday. Anyway we are excited, enthused and just refreshed after a mini-vacation!
