We're baaaack...

So we're back from a sweet and fun time in the Dallas area. I took off last Thursday to do a little prep for our trip but first there was some important business to take care of: the Family Bracket Challenge. All three of us filled out brackets for both the men and women over a homemade taco dinner Wednesday evening. 

Tonto went with logic and stats. I went with bold predictions. The girl chose the team with the coolest sounding name. Let's just say she had a banner day during the chaos on Saturday and, overall, we're all about tied...  :-)

Thursday was a big errand running day. The girl and I took advantage of the car was being next door to the snow cone place...

...and put the finishing touches on some St. Patrick's Day festiveness later in the evening before settling in for an evening of basketball. We were on the edge of our seats as the Baylor Bears finally put South Dakota away for good. They were a scrappy little team but our guys prevailed in the end.

We were up and at 'em early Friday so we could be at Six Flags as soon as it opened. I have tons o' pictures to share (you knew that already, right?) but here are a few highlights as a bit of a teaser.

This is what happens when you go off with someone who cannot be embarrassed...

...and we were visited by a leprechaun early Saturday morning. :-)

All of the folks working at Six Flags were clearly fans of the Bears as they were wearing Electricity-colored shirts. Just like our new uniforms.

We got up close and personal with Rangers Ballpark at one point. Probably the only time we'll ever get to drive through the valet line...

...and we also visited Fort Worth Zoo where this longhorn buried his head in a box. Maybe he heard how UT was doing in the tourney? :-)

Our hotel had an amazing atrium complete with koi ponds.

There's so much more to share but that will have to wait until another day. 

Happy Monday, y'all!

Heehee - the shot of Tonto with a pink hairdo was funny, but the longhorn with its head in a box was priceless! :p
