In April we flew to El Paso for the National Bowling tournament. Finally Kevin bowls, again, with a team that takes their wives along. It's about the only vacation we take lately. I had finished my radiation treatments 2 days before we left and my breast healed unbelievably quickly! I did keep a shirt on when laying by the pool.
The hotel we stayed at had a nice breakfast, including waffles, which are my favorite!!! When this waffle is flipped over it's hard to see what it is.......at first I just thought 'What a weird shape for a waffle, was there a sale on the waffle irons whose shapes were deformed?' Then I flipped it over and VIOLA ~
Them Texans just gotta do things 'diffrent'.
BUT everything is NOT bigger in Texas.
We had to ask someone what this was....
The weather was perfect while we were there. I made sure to spend at much time here as I could. The guys bowl on 2 different days and I only watched on one. Kevin doesn't mind if I don't watch....it's not that much fun to watch and I wanted some sunshine.
While they bowled I relaxed at the pool and later went for a walk to the strip mall a block or 2 away. I stopped at a consignment shop and bought a new maxi dress (they are so comfy) and a sparkly purple tank top (for Red Hats).
I also stopped at Orange Leaf yogurt where I had $7 worth of ice cream. I'm worth it, right????
One of the few sightseeing things we did was to ride the Wyler aerial tram. I don't recall every being on one. It operates on a 2400' cable and rises over 900' to the mountain above. The ride is less than 5 minutes. The view is amazing! I'm glad we did it. One of the other wives did not go on it.
I think descending was worse than going up.
A beautiful shrub that won't grow in WI, but I'd sure like it.
Yup, I'm a little too big, but I there's nothing wrong with a little silliness.
A Cracker Barrel restaurant was just across the parking lot and Walmart was within walking distance in the other direction so we wanted for nothing....'cept a few extra days of vacation.
