For Christmas, we gave the kids tickets to see the Mavericks play in Dallas and took our trip last weekend. What a great trip! I loved being back in Dallas and the kids had so much fun. We took a direct flight after school on Friday…
and were sitting down to dinner by 8:00! We had dinner at Hudson House and Maxwell even tried an oyster! whoa!!
Samantha turned her nose up at the oysters but ate plenty of chocolate pie!
We stayed at the Highland Dallas right by SMU which worked out great.
The weather was unusually cold and blustery on Saturday but that didn’t bother us. We grabbed breakfast…
drove around Highland Park looking at houses and then headed to Northpark Mall! Shopping all day…just what the boys love! ha!
In all seriousness, it was the best way to spend the day. Everyone did some shopping and came home with new stuff – well, everyone except me! who would have thought that?! We had lunch and an afternoon treat at Neiman Marcus, the boys got to do a VR experience at the movie theater, and Samantha got some cotton candy. It was a win all around!
That night we had dinner at Mesero, a mexican restaurant close to the American Airlines Center. It worked out because we could park in the garage and leave our car there during the game.
The game was really fun. Lots of action and entertainment! The kids loved seeing Luka Doncic play, I loved watching the ManiAACs and the “entertainment squad”, and we all loved seeing Boban!…even if he was injured and couldn’t play.
We didn’t get back to the hotel until after 11 and had an early morning on Sunday because we had to get back to Birmingham for another, much more important, basketball game…
Go MB Magic! Go Mavericks! Such a fun, easy weekend trip that I would love to do again!
