Dallas Weekend!

We had the best weekend in Dallas. We went for business for Tyler, but we managed to have a ton of fun in the process.

We left Friday morning and Friday evening when we got to Dallas, we had Tyler’s parts company’s convention. It was at the Arlington Convention Center (sandwhiched in between Ranger’s stadium and Cowboy’s stadium and Six Flags). There were lots of vendors set up around the room to meet with, and Tyler got some great deals for his motorcycle business. They also fed us a wonderful dinner.

This was us on self-timer after the dinner.

Saturday morning, we got up and headed out on the town. Tyler wanted to go to a big hobby shop to look at RC cars (he is all boy) and so we traveled up to Plano to go to this shop we found. It was neat to look at all the radio controlled toys (boats, helicopters, planes, cars, trucks).

Then we went to Ann Taylor for me and then we went here for lunch: The Blue Goose Mexican Cantina.

We went to the Blue Goose years ago when we were on one of Ty’s fraternity outings, and we like it then. So we found it and went back and had a delicious mexican lunch.

Then we headed to the main event: the Monster Supercross. We got free tickets and pit passes from his parts company, so we had a day of fun on them! The race was at Cowboy’s stadium!

We started out at the pit party in a big parking lot across the street. Tons of stuff going on: demos of fun products, contests, dancing ladies (not my favorite part), and tons of people walking around taking it all in.
Tyler’s favorite thing was seeing the demo of these fancy RC cars…the Traxxus Revo. He really wants one. He got to see it in action. See the car in the air by the M in Monster? This thing could flip and fly!
We were also treated to food and drinks by the parts company at the nice Thor apparel area.
Then we headed to the stadium (behind the tents) for the qualifying races.
This was once we got inside. The HUGE jumbotron inside. This thing is massive.
We were excited!
We watched several qualifying races and then the main event started. There was awesome colored fire shooting out from the starting gate.
And there was fireworks. They opened the roof at the stadium, which was so nice as it was a beautiful Spring evening.
Then the races started! They were so exciting and great races! This was our favorite guy Chad Reed #22. He unfortunately had a crash mid race and didn’t finish in the top five, but he’s still our favorite!
Sunday we met some friends from college for lunch (Liz, Michael and Jessica) but my camera died. We had a great time catching up and being all together again.

Then we headed home. We were so happy to be reunited with our Mikey! Now for the busy week….
