Terry and Bobbie stayed with Tony and me, and because it was an abbreviated weekend we didn't have time to do any of the typical tourist-y things most first timers to Texas hope to do. We did, however, spend some time with Jenni, Erika, and their kids. My daughters wanted to meet my friends very badly, and everyone hit it off beautifully. The little ones performed beyond anything we could have hoped for and loved Bobbie and Terry.
Saturday afternoon Bobbie, Terry, and I piled into my car and we drove to Fort Worth to meet Deb. We did some shopping/browsing in the Stockyards area, then headed to Joe T. Garcia's for dinner and margaritas. We had a great table outside in the garden, and our waitress was a sweet young thing who appreciated that we hadn't been together in 43 years and let us stay for hours. It was a perfect evening.
It was hard to say goodbye after such a wonderful reunion, but we have a 50th (!!!) class reunion in a few years, so even if we don't get together between now and then as we would like, we have a date to meet at the reunion in 2018.
Here are a few photos from the weekend:
Bobbie and Terry getting acquainted with Zoey and Ruby.
Maggie absolutely fell in love with Terry right from the start!
Bobbie and Terry visiting at Casa Wiese.
Leo, oblivious to the ladies, spent his time wrestling with his dad.
Etta showed off her new skill of pulling up and cruising. Not bad for 8 months.
We did not, however, partake of any Buffalo Butt Beer!!
