Day 1 Dallas Texas - Make A Wish

On Wednesday Oct 14th we got up VERY early, got breakfast and ran off to the airport to catch our 8:10 flight to Dallas TX on Southwest Airlines. We made it more than on time and had to wait at the airport for 2 hours. We arrived in Dallas Love Field around 10:30am. Picked up our rental Van and then headed for the hotel. We stayed at the Westin Galleria - here is a view from the outside - it is attached to a very large mall - the Galleria which has a skating rink on the bottom floor (big hit with the kids and YES - I forgot to get pics)
Here is a view from our hotel window - we stayed on the 15th floor and had quite the view of the city. Couldn't see much the day we got there as it was foggy and rainy. But it cleared up on Thursday!

Another view of the freeway and city as far as the eye could see - I guess I had no idea how HUGE Dallas was. It makes ABQ look TINY!

This is a picture of Downtown Dallas from the van - sorry it's a little blurry but it was the only time I could get a picture of Downtown. We didn't get near Downtown except the night we went to Medieval Times and I forgot my camara!
After we got to the hotel and got settled in (we had two attached rooms with 1 King bed and 2 Queens) It was very nice and the kids all took turns spending the night at the hotel and the Joyces' house. The Joyce's came to join us and we spent the afternoon/evening at the mall walking, talking and mostly window shopping as this mall is a bit on the swanky side for us Country folks (Stores like Saks Fifth Avenue/Norstrom's and Louis Vuitton were in this mall) We did go out to dinner at a BBQ place nearby which was nice.
