I hadn’t been out of town since we went to Nashville May 2011. That is WAY too long! Lexi moved to the Ft. Worth area back in September, I decided it was time to go see her.
(Warning: this post is picture heavy!)
I was really glad I had my Kindle for this trip!
My flight got in around 9:30pm Thursday night, Lexi was waiting for me when I got there. By the time we got to her apartment it was 10:30pm. I figured she would go to bed as soon as we got there because she had to work the next morning and she is usually in bed between 9:30-10:30pm. Corri came over and we sat on the balcony talking until 12:30am!
Friday, Corri came and picked me up. We went to Yucatan Taco Stand for lunch with Lexi and Corri’s brother.
After we ate there, Corri and I headed to Dallas to go to the Dallas World Aquarium. It was pretty cool and we had fun but I don’t think it was worth the $22.50/each to get in.
The Sloth was our favorite. He was just hanging out in a tree in the middle.
After the aquarium we drove back to Ft. Worth and went to the water gardens and walked around
We left there and went back to Lexi’s apartment to wait for her to get off work. Corri went home and Lexi and I hung out for awhile. We headed to downtown Ft. Worth to get something to eat.
We drove around for FOREVER. We couldn’t decide where we wanted to go, we even asked Siri and she was no help. We decided on Boomer Jack’s. It was pretty good. We ate a TON of food. We ordered cheese fries to start out with, then I ordered a Ceaser Salad and Bacon Ranch Chicken Quesadillas. Lexi ordered a Philly sandwich.

Corri met us at the Stockyards. We listened to a band play, we stalked them online and found out the lead singer is 18…. I’m 11 years older than him!!! I felt really old.
I’m really short!
Saturday, Lexi and I slept in and then went to the Ft. Worth Zoo. I LOVE Zoo’s!!!
After the zoo Lexi and I went to Pappadeaux for a late lunch. It was pretty good!
After lunch we went to Lexi’s apartment because Lexi wanted to take a nap… she ended up sleeping for 20 min and I slept for…..an hour and a half! HA! I guess the Zoo wore me out!
We decided to just hang out at Lexi’s Saturday night, we went to Walmart to buy some games and snacks. We sat on the balcony and played games until 5am!
I can’t wait to go back!
