Day Trip to Dallas

 Britt, my friend Rachel and myself took a day trip to Dallas this last Saturday. Our purpose was to go and see my friend Amy, her husband Jon and their daughter Ella (who has a heart condition and had just had her third open heart surgery.) It was WONDERFUL to get to see them since they have had to stay at home the last five months and not see anyone to protect Ella from getting sick (She can't get sick with her condition).

Of course while we were down there we went to the Grapevine outlet mall, ate some Chinese food and also visited the biggest Salvation Army I have ever seen. (Yes, I like salvation Army).

-Apparently I am trying to see how many times I can use parentheses in this post. :)

 Here I am, excited to be on the road! Even if it was only for a day I was happy to be going somewhere!

 Group photo!

 Getting Closer!

I was bored. And attempting to be "artsy". :) 

   Texas! I put an exlamation point because:
1.) We were there.
2.) They have nice malls
3.).....I will get back to you on this one....

 See. Smelling Texas. Not cool. 

We thought this was pretty funny!

 Rachel and I! 

Another group photo!  We are thankful for Britt's long arms.
Just one of the many reasons I married him. :) haha

 O.K.L.A.H.O.M.A. OK! 

I don't have to plug my nose for this state line crossing.  

   Classic looking Oklahoma.
And THIS is how I knew that we were really almost home.... :p

We really had a fun time. It was a quick trip but we enjoyed the new sites, going somewhere different and seeing Amy, Jon and Ella. So thankful for the miricle that she is! If you don't know her story you should check out her Blog Here.

Haha, your pictures crack me up. We were SHOCKED when we drove to Norman and there was no construction on the mile of cars!! Glad you had a great trip. It's always nice to get away, even for just a little while.
