A Hotel, A President and a Pool

Does that post title sound a little risque? I thought so! I love when others have dirty minds, too! But sorry, it's not at all what it appears to be. In fact, it's what our weekend consisted of.

On Friday night, we traveled to Dallas for the night. Our nephew and niece were flying in the next morning and instead of getting up at the ass crack of dawn to make the 3 hours drive, we got a hotel room and crashed there. Connor had a couple freak out moments in the car on the way to Dallas but overall, did well. He slept for half of the trip, leaving me to believe he would be up all night. He was full of enjoy once we got there and was ready to go!

Saturday, we visited the JFK museum and Dealay Plaza. I am a huge Kennedy fan (read slightly in love with all things Kennedy, Camelot and Massachusetts). We went through the guided tour and stood on the ever so famous grassy knoll. As much of a nerd as this makes me sound, I love knowing I was standing on ground where history was made.  Dealey Plaza is where the witnesses of JFK's assassination stand and watched. It was amazing standing there and thinking of all that occurred so many years ago.

We got home late Saturday night so we planned to take it easy on Sunday. With the warm temperatures, we couldn't resist spending some time in the pool. I think it's safe to say Connor had a blast. He is really enjoying spending time with Jordan and Vanessa while they are in town.

Our weekend was fabulous and the summer is going to be such a blast. Texas as a lot to offer and we are going to make the most of it. Being new to the area, we are totally into checking out the sites and sounds of Austin.
