in the big "D"

Just recently we took a quick jaunt to Dallas to hang out with the fam.

That of course was not the fam.

We cruised around with family:

We also had a nice visit at my mom's new workplace, Scottish Rite Hospital:

Quite a special hospital for children, mom gave us the full tour:

She also introduced us to her lovely co-workers:

Before our lunch with Mom, we saw Dad for a moment on Friday morning. He was moving at characteristic speed and needed a ride as a result of a broken car. Here he is: coffee and briefcase in hand, phone to ear, traveling at lightening speed.

Back to Mom's we enjoyed lovely dinners outside:

And the company of Joe and Ziggy:

A trip to Dallas wouldn't be anything without a visit to the farm:

where we enjoyed a nice porch lunch with Dad:

After lunch, I couldn't help but challenging myself to jumping the hay bales which lined the length of the entrance road.

Mefford, same, only a lesser gap:

Later on Philly began to regard our activity with some dismay:

Philly, knowing this was a bad idea:

Even without the hay bale shinnanigans, we really enjoyed ourselves during our short stay in Dallas and look forward to a more lengthy visit soon. Much love to each and every family member: Mom, Dad, Philly, Steve, and Mari. We hope Maggie will join us next time, too.
