San Antonio was awesome! We had such a great time there and now we’re onto Dallas/ Fort Worth. We plan to stop in Waco on the way there.  The morning was quite drizzly but that didn’t stop Team Roberts, we packed up and hit the road around 8 o’clock. The drive to Dallas/ Fort Worth is about four hours and it was supposed to take 2 hrs. To Waco… things don’t always go as planned, right?  Between the rain and accidents we had almost a two hour delay sitting on the highway. That’s when having this Class A RV comes in handy  because we could get up go to the restroom and grab a bite to eat while we sat stuck in traffic.

We were so thrilled, well Kennedy and I were, when we got to Waco and to check out Magnolia market and bakery. It was amazing how many people were there! The place was packed!  But of course Chip and Joanna have created an awesome environment, the energy was really upbeat and festive. There were a bunch of food trucks in the courtyard area with all sorts of  interesting  choices. So we were able to grab some lunch and then Kennedy and I stood in line for almost an hour to get cupcakes. It started raining even harder and the folks there brought us out ponchos, very thoughtful. I think we bought every type of cupcake they had…we had to, right? I mean we had to make it worth our time waiting so long:) They were delicious, I especially loved the carrot cake and red velvet…

We arrived late afternoon to our campground, Hickory Creek Park an Army Corp of Engineer park. http://www.hickorycreek-tx.govIt is located on the Lewisville Lake. Very pretty, lots of trees, bike/running path, excellent sites on the lake. Only downside is there wasn’t any laundry.

Sunday Mark flew out to San Jose for work. The children and I met up with one of my my colleagues and his wife from The John Maxwell Company, Chris and Robin. They are locals and met up with us at the Ft. Worth Stockyards. http://www.fortworthstockyards.org/

We had fun walking around imagining what it was like during the Wild West, checking out the Stockyard Hotel bar with saddles as stools, petting some horses, riding some bulls, meeting some cowboys and watching the cattle drive through the town…

After that Chris and Robin gave us a driving tour of the modern Ft. Worth and treated us to lunch at an incredible Tex mex restaurant called Mi Cochina http://www.micocinarestaurants.com/store_page/sundance-square/

What a fun day! Since Mark was traveling, Chris and Robin invited us to take a break from the RV life for big beds, long hot showers and home cooked meals…we couldn’t resist:) We loved hanging with them and their furry children Scooter and Cookie (one of the fluffiest cats I’ve ever met). We had a wonderful time, truly appreciate the Texas hospitality!!

Finally a visit to Dallas doing a tour of the city in a Texas style cruiser of course. Made a stop at Pioneer Plaza, the Farmers Market (amazing meal at Mudhen – farm to table http://www.mudheninthe.net/), saw all the details about JFK, parks, museums, etc. wonderful city!  

Picked up Mark from the airport, now on to get ready to head to Albuquerque and Phoenix. Life is great!
