Back from vacation, which my husband and I have named the Taste of Texas Tour. We were supposed to do packed snacks and camp cooking, but it was just so hot that we never wanted to stand over a camp stove :)
|The longhorn herd was great! They were super huge!|

I made the skirt the day before we left. Very basic, but a cute retro cowboy print.
|Me being a dork - I think the longhorn agreed...|
|All of the pieces were so detailed. It was really incredible.|

Pioneer Plaza was our first stop on our little road trip. It had been a long while since I was in downtown Dallas. We stopped around noon-thirty and walked around the plaza. There were lots of folks out taking photos in the scorching heat, but it was a lot of fun.
The girls seemed to enjoy it except that they were hot and hungry. They were pretty good sports about taking the pictures - they know how I am with my camera ;)
I definitely recommend going during the day. I'm used to a bigger downtown area, but there were some 'shady' looking people around. I did see security riding around in a little golf cart looking vehicle. Mr. Harris pointed out a guy who was watching people and just didn't look like he was there for the art or an afternoon picnic. I didn't ever feel unsafe, but at night it might be another story. I've been wanting to go see the plaza for a while and I totally wasn't disappointed :)
