Our Texas Trip

So I can't fall asleep right now so thought I'd blog it up. Last year one of Emmy's Christmas presents was a promise that we would go to Texas within 5 years. I think it was like a week after where it was announced that BYU would be playing Oklahoma in the Cowboys new stadium. We decided to go for the game and enjoy Texas while we were down there. Emmy lived in Plano for some time so she really wanted to go back there. We also went to see Jared in Waco and then down to San Antonio. We came back to Dallas for some meetings I had with some clients, and we stayed with the Wyatts. My uncle Cory and his family, Jared, the Wyatts, and the Jacobsons were so nice in letting us stay in their homes.

Went by the Temple in Dallas

Emmy had lots of good memories here, always getting into trouble with her brother playing with bouncy balls all over the store.

JFK was shot from the 2nd window from the top to the right. What was interesting, though, is that there are conspiracy theorists everywhere and no people telling what really happened.

Hung out with Jared and his girlfriend, Danye.

Went to the capitol building in Austin.

A mission in San Antonio. Deep in the heart of Texas

The Riverwalk in San Antonio.

Em's co-worker, Shay, let us stay at one of their properties in San Antonio. It really really cool to just relax for a whole day.

On the way back we stopped at the Mesa Verde National Park and saw some cliff dwellings.

A cool storm we saw on the way back near Moab "Our dance" outside the Alamo

So that's it. It was a really fun trip, we ate a lot of good stuff. Em took me to some AMAZING restaurants like On the Border and Texas Land and Cattle. What's amazing, though, is that the more we travel, the more we love Utah.

Texas, our Texas! All hail the mighty State!
Texas, our Texas! So wonderful so great!
Boldest and grandest, Withstanding ev'ry test;
O Empire wide and glorious, You stand supremely blest.

God bless you Texas! And keep you brave and strong,
That you may grow in power and worth, Thro'out the ages long!
