Grapevine, TX

We have had a great time in Grapevine, TX. The Vineyards Campground has been such a nice place to call home this past week. Anyone passing through the Dallas, Fort Worth area should check out staying here.

Joe and I had a couple of visits with his friend (Clyde and his wife Pat) from the Navy. When we went to see them at their home we were taken to a real Texas Hamburger hamburger and chili we have downtown Denton, TX.Texans know how to serve up a burger. Clyde also took us for a ride around the area. We saw some beautiful horse ranches.....I was so sorry I had left my camera in our car.....quite impressive. The horse barns were bigger and nicer than most homes I have ever seen and the horses were magnificent creatures.

I need one of those!
Race day turned out to be a good day. The weather held off. Our seats were up pretty high, but we could see the whole track. It was way fun watching Jeff Gordon go from 34th to the top 5. The race would have been better if there had been more fast as they go there, I am surprised that there were no wrecks.

Last Sunday, Joe and I went to downtown Fort Worth. We saw on the internet that there was a Justin Boot Outlet and wanted to check it out. We are so glad we did....if you need boots, that's the place to go. Joe found 2 pair of boots to fit him and I tried on lots and lots of boots....what fun! It was hard to make a decision, but I finally decided on a black pair and a brown pair. It was really hard to pass up the lime green pair! Right next door was a Dickies Outlet as well. Joe found t-shirts and shorts.
 This picture was taken on Main Street in Grapevine. It does not really show how nice the area is. There are many cute shops for clothes, gardens, jewelry and antiques, and Texas- themed creations.  I got a couple of cute tops at Bella Butterflies and we bought a hand-made stone cross at Holy Grounds. We ate lunch at Big Fish. We both got grilled salmon with pineapple salsa....yummy!

 Jack and Wrecks have had a great time playing ball. Wrecks did get his ball, but it took awhile. He was not too sure of himself. Dover, however, had no trouble exploring and splashing. Jack actually helped Wrecks once. All of a sudden Jack made a mad dash to the lake and under he went. He was so not afraid! Sally and Dover have had lots of walks. They have both enjoyed the birds and ducks!
Yes....the heron did swallow the fish!

Mama led her babies to the lake...all 8 of them!
