Billy Bobs and Cowtown Fun

Well my Aunt Liz came to Texas a couple days ago and we haven't let her slow down since! When you come to Fort Worth, you have to visit Billy Bobs...I mean it is the World's Largest Honkytonk. Don't worry, I've forgiven my Aunt for asking, "What is a Honkytonk?". She is from California so we will let that slide. :) She did get to ride the bull...we do it big time in Texas!!
The poor bull had to deal with my 3....he'll never be the same.

Billy Bobs was my second home in college. My friends and I loved going dancing there and we knew every bartender and bouncer in the place. It was fun taking my family back to my old stomping grounds.

We walked around the Stockyards for a bit then headed to the infamous Joe T's for some yummy Mexican food. It doesn't get any better than that!

We also went by our school so she can see where the kids go and where Gene and I work. It is definitely our second home now but we love it!

Poor Aunt Liz is going to be exhausted when she gets back to California. When we picked her up from the airport on day 1 we took her to Dallas to see the American Girl Store.

We ate lunch at the Galleria and did a little shopping. Gene had a home cooked meal waiting on us for dinner and after we ate, we headed down the street to feed the fish at the lake. In just 24 hours, we have experienced 3 cities....only in the great state of TEXAS!!
Today we are traveling to Houston to see the rest of the family. It has been so much fun having my Auntie here. I'm looking forward to the rest of her visit.
