Though it is hard to get together due to our husband's jobs and our families, we try to make it work every couple of years. Our latest gathering was back in Texas, at Betsy's home. We flew in on Friday morning, and out on Sunday afternoon. We ate a lot, drank a little, shopped some, did a little sight-seeing and talked A LOT! When three friends get together, who don't talk on the phone, there is a lot to catch up on, so we talked over each other and stayed up late filling each other in on everything.
Betsy was a gracious hostess, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with these precious friends. We traveled to Fort Worth and ate at one of the most popular Mexican places in town. We waited in line for 30 minutes, were seated outside on their huge patio, and chose from only 2 entrees. No wonder they are so successful! We left when they closed, and returned back to Betsy's.
The following morning, Chelsea's birthday, we slept in and had a delicious breakfast at Betsy's. We then headed back to Fort Worth to watch the cattle drive. Every day, twice daily, cowhands walk the long-horned cattle through the historic stockyards to holding pens. You can get your picture taken on one of the cattle, and take in all of the surroundings.
We had to be tourists, and get our pictures taken on these long ears (what I accidentally called them once, and it stuck all weekend).
