Here we are taking off:
|Marigold's first flight.|
She did great! She smiled and made friends
with everyone around her.
Our first stop when we landed in Dallas? Barbecue, of course. And wow was it delicious.
After lunch, we went to the Kennedy museum and saw where President Kennedy was assassinated.
The next day in Dallas we went to Avila's for Tex-Mex. It has been featured on a lot of TV shows and has raving reviews. Well, the food didn't disappoint. We're still talking about how good this place was. In fact, I could really go for some brisket tacos right about now.
To further our presidential education, we checked out the George W. Library on the SMU campus. It was incredibly nice--the best presidential library we've ever been to.

the Ukrainian president to the Bush family.

|All the reading paid off, here's Levi|

Our next destination was Nashville, our home away from home. Mark and I lived there for three years when we were in school.

Because every baby needs one to go to
While I was at the baby shower, Mark took the kids to his alma matter, Vanderbilt University, where he went to law school. Yeah, he's a stud.
We spent Superbowl Sunday hanging out at Kristen's house:
Then ate at Cracker Barrel one last time...
and flew home to Los Angeles.
And what would a vacation post be without another food mention? When we got back home we stopped at our tried-and-true In-n-Out.
|Levi is always up for a good time!|
