We left Friday afternoon and spent the night in Wichita. It was a late night and early morning when we got on the road. We arrived in the Dallas area around 1. We grabbed lunch, checked into our room then went to my cousin’s house. That evening we ate at a Hibachi grill. TNT had never been to one and we were lucky our chef was very interactive and fun. Here’s my cousin and I waiting. One thing us small town residents are not used too is having to wait in line. A 45 minute wait is nothing to get a table. At home most of the time we are done eating and on the way out of the restaurant in 45 minutes.
Sunday morning we were at my cousins’ house by 7:00 am for a photo shoot party for my little cousin, Sam. Photo shoot parties are all the rage down here and we are talking HUGE bucks too!! Sam’s 12th bday is in June but since I was down there we did it early. It was such a fun time with Sam and 5 of her friends. How cute is Sam?
After the photo shoot my cousins’ drove us to downtown Dallas and toured the Sixth Floor Museum (JFK museum). I’d been there before back in 2002, but I think I appreciate it more now. I’ve read a lot about the conspiracies and there’s a lot of questions that I’m sure will never be answered. It’s very interesting. The museum tries their best by saying there was no conspiracy which makes me think there IS a conspiracy even more! Oswald shot Kennedy from the far right window one floor down from the top. Right above the tree. Very weird to be there and know what happened. It’s heartbreaking to see pictures taken at this intersection where that grey car is and John & Jackie are both smiling then just yards later everything changes.
Close up of the winda. The museum has this area glassed in so you can’t look out from the window.
The famous grassy knoll.
These large pictures are made up of tiny tiny pictures. JKF is made up of Jackie’s picture and Jackie’s is JFK’s.
Kind of neat.
See that second light pole on the side of the first street? That’s where the first shot hit the President.
TNT looking out.
After the museum we went and ate at Babe’s, it’s a family style chicken place. Another 45 minute wait but at least it was worth it. The food is amazing.
OH MY!! Chicken that is OUT of this world good and the cream sweet corn, the mashed taters and gravy and the biscuits are to die for. TNT doesn’t like biscuits and he ate 3! After lunch we literally rolled out of Babe’s we were so full and headed back to their place to finish watching the Daytona 500. Thank Gosh Danica didn’t win!!
Sunday night in our motel room I ordered a bunch of books on the conspiracies and books about Jackie Kennedy through Amazon. Much cheaper than buying them in the museum bookstore.
