If you have been following our journey for a while then you know we had some bumps back in February with an individual stealing our photos and pretending to be affiliated with our family. This was not the first time for this person and while it may still happen again, next time we’ll simply see her in court and be done with it. Seems drastic but trust me, it isn’t. Now that you understand why we disappeared for awhile, it is time to let it go and get back to happier sharing! What all did you miss while we were on hiatus? Well, where do we even begin?
March found us in North Dallas where we were when things hit the fan but we got to leave the hotel in Wichita Falls, grab our camper from East Texas, and park it in a sweet little town known as Bowie. (That’s “Booie” for anyone not from Texas…I know, insane.) While this may not have seemed like a big deal at first, for our family it soon would be.
You see, I grew up with 6 siblings who were all half or step. All but two lived 10+ hours away and they are all also 4-20(ish) years older than me. Needless to say, I’ve never had a close sibling relationship. It was basically just me and my mom until I was 10 and by then, the two I had a chance with had their own habits, personalities, and opinions. They were pre-teens when we met and we never quite got along in the right ways. Our time in Bowie allowed me to spend some one on one time with one of my step-sisters though and I cherish the seeds that it planted. We will still need time, maybe even years, but I see us being great friends one day.
Along with the time spent playing at my sister’s, we also got a visit from my parents. They chose to rent out 3 rooms at a hotel between where we were camped and my sister’s in Dallas so we could all celebrate Easter together a week in advance. It was incredible and I am so thankful to have had such a rare moment with all of us together!
Another benefit to being so close to Dallas is that we were close to ARLINGTON. If you know my husband, then you know he’s a major Cowboys fan. I’ll spare you the details of how absolutely worth it the stadium tour is and just leave these photos here. Seriously, if you haven’t gone then GO! Self-guided adult tickets are only $17.50, kids are $14.50, and children under 12 are free. How could we not? If you feel like you could keep up with a group then splurge for the guided tour tickets and get to see a few exclusive areas of the arena. (We had 3 kids 4 and under…we were definitely going at our own pace!)
