I'm writing this from my Aunt's couch in Weatherford, Texas. It's only 50 degrees, but it's 37 at my house so I'm not complaining. I did complain yesterday though when it was warmer at home than here.
We stayed in all day for that mess. Luckily we are a family of talkers and story tellers so it was still a fun day.
On Tuesday we went into Ft Worth to visit my cousin who works at Texas Christian University. We had lunch at a tasty place just off campus and then we visited some iconic TCU spots like these fountains
and this adorable Super Frog who is their mascot.
We had plans to have dinner with that cousin and her sister in Ft Worth later that night, so between meals my aunt and I went to the Kimbal Art Museum.
My favorite might have been this Munch painting called Girls on the Bridge.
That night we had dinner at one of my favorite places to eat in Louisiana or Texas, La Madeleine. Not only did I have delicious pasta and my own tiny baguette, I bought a giant jar of soup to take home and a pastry for the next day's breakfast.
Last weekend I was in Wichita Falls. On Sunday my friend Deb and i drove north to the Texas/Oklahoma border so we could visit the Wichita Mountains.
Did you know there were mountains there? I certainly didn't and I've spent my whole life in Kansas, one state north. They're really gorgeous. We visited the prairie dogs
and then drove up to the top of Mount Scott. It was chilly and windy up top, like it is on top of a mountain, but the view was so gorgeous.
I took this picture of Deb and I that we took at the Prarie Dogs. it might be my favorite picture of us ever, which is saying a lot because we've been taking pictures together since 1979. So I'm showing it to you.
Tonight I'm having dinner with another friend from high school. Tomorrow I head to Austin for the last stop of this adventure before I head back home. It's been a great adventure so far. I'm excited about the rest of it.
