We got to visit my parents in Texas over Thanksgiving break. This doesn't happen often because Tom can't always get leave. But this time it worked out. It takes about 6-7 hours to get to their home. We went the day before Thanksgiving so it took like 9.
It wasn't so bad though. I mean, we got to try our Weinerschnitzel. It's a fantastic fast food place whose specialty is HOT DOGS. I had never had it but my friend Jennifer always raves about so I thought, "Okay, she says there's chili cheese fries. I LOVE chili cheese fries!" The food was amazing. Even Tom, who is incredibly picky, liked it.
Thanksgiving was fun. I didn't have to cook so I was happy.
(That's my dad carving the turkey with an electric carver.)
We had my grandma and a friend join us too.
The next day we did not venture out on Black Friday but Mom and I DID go to The Melting Pot for unlimited fondue night. We stuffed our faces.
The cheese is amazing!
I ate so much cheese.
But my favorite part?
Go to The Melting Pot if you haven't. Go on unlimited fondue night and you can eat all you want. I had to undo my jeans. But it was worth it.
The next day we went to see the working dog memorial at Lackland AFB:
And then we walked around and looked at airplanes:
Tom graduated basic training here:
That night we went to a place called Santa's Ranch to see Christmas lights:
Texas was a blast! We hope to be able to go again soon.
Only next time I hope it doesn't take as long to get there.
