The Big "D"

Alvin and I are infamous for spur of the moment plans. Friday we decided to go to Dallas for the weekend to visit our best friends, Rick and Kay Jones and their daughters Tara and Taylor. We met Rick and Kay on a cruise in 1996 and have been best buds ever since. We usually cruise together every other year and try to get together a few times throughout the year.

We leave home at 6:15 Saturday morning, drive to Little Rock in the most horrific storm ever and fly out on the 8:40. Of course as soon as they pick us up it's always off to "Sam Moon", I mean hey, first things first here! After spending at least an hour there, Kay wants to go to this new furniture store which is having its grand opening, you guessed it! They bought a table and chairs and I LOVE IT!!!! I am sooooooo jealous, couldn't get it though, no room in the overhead bin.. DAAANG! Two hours, two pair of flip flops, a purse, two pair of reading glasses and two pair of sunglasses later and a Tahoe loaded with - you guessed it table and chairs we were on our way to Celina!

When we spend the weekend with Rick and Kay we do what is called "slimming". Which means hangin' out at the pool, no make-up, no goin' no where, doin' nuthin' but hangin' out visitin'. And that is exactly what we did! We stayed in the pool both days, the guys grilled and put the table and chairs together. We talked and talked and talked and laughed and laughed and laughed until we were talked and laughed out. Here are a few pics from our trip:

I love quick trips to anywhere! Usually they are much more fun than when you have to plan, plan, plan!!

Looks like you have alot of fun with your friends!

I think spur of the moment anything is better than planned out anything! I love that you met your best friends on a cruise. We had the best time on a cruise and met some really neat people, too. I love that table. Sitting around doing "nutin but visitin" is my kind of reunion! Yeah! Glad you had fun. Must be nice to fly free!
