Apr 3, 2019 - Houston and Dallas

After leaving the Texas Hill Country, we headed for the Houston area. Our friends and fellow Anselmians Dave and Theresa Harrington live in The Woodlands. We were fortunate to catch a few days when Dave, who works in The Hague, was in town. We were also fortunate to have the Boston Pops in town too! They gave a great concert with some of John Williams greatest compositions. Hearing The Imperial March from Star Wars played by the Pops was impressive. They completed the evening with Deep in the Heart of Texas for the locals too. We also...

Dec 13, 2018 - LBJ & Mystery Dinner

On the road again bound for the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin. LBJ was the 36th President of the US during the turbulent 1960's. The limousine used in Texas after the Presidency is on display in the lobby. Millions of pages of documents reside in the LBJ Library Archives. Official portraits of former Presidents line the walls of the Great Hall. Other exhibits detail domestic and foreign affairs during the Johnson administration. On display are treasures presented to the First Family from world leaders. The highlight for me was the 7/8...

Adventures for 2018

May 13, 2015 - It's Wet in Texas

The flooding on Grapevine Lake has gotten worse since Sunday. I woke up this morning to find the water level encroaching on the camp sites in front of me. The Denton area upstream from the lake has been slammed by heavy rain the last couple of days. We got heavy rain this afternoon. Forecasts are for more rain tomorrow and Friday. I wonder if there is any way to ship some of this water to California. I was warned by the campground management that if the water level in the lake rises another 2 ft., they would have to shut off the...

2015 Texas Trek

May 10, 2015 - The Vineyards in Grapevine

We left Lavender RV Park about noon today and headed toward DFW. I was little worried about the weather as the forecast was for rain all day with heavy thunderstorms. There were also tornado touchdowns to the north and west of Dallas. Fortunately, there was only about 15 or 20 minutes of rain and no thunderstorms or tornado watches. We arrived at the Vineyards late in the afternoon. It's located in Grapevine, TX just north of DFW and right next to the airport. It's pretty nice located on Lake Grapevine. We have a site on the lake front that...

Aug 24, 2012 - Tyler, TX to Grapevine, TX

Tyler, TX to Grapevine, TX 134 miles The day took a small detour when I called the RV park in Arlington to make reservations. They are booked solid this weekend, next week, and next weekend. I can understand next weekend since it’s Labor Day, but this weekend? What’s going on in Arlington??? We shifted plans and found an RV park not too terribly far from where Ron’s daughter lives and were able to make reservations for this weekend. The drive from Tyler was not too bad until we were caught up in major construction and the start of rush...

Dec 17, 2011 - Dismay in a Manger

Our good friends Chris and Phyllis Whatley for whom we worked in murder mystery dinner theatre for several years, had opened a new venue for the murder mystery in downtown Grapevine, so we took the whole family there on Saturday to see their Christmas Show - Dismay in a Manger. We figured this would definitely be a new experience for Silja who also brought her friend Clay. After being at the Fort Worth Stockyards, then at the Gaylord Texas, the murder mystery now has its own theatre Texas Star Dinner Theatre . They have a meal catered by...

Two Hams in a Can

Nov 5, 2011 - Leggo My Lego!

Since we had flown Madeleine out to San Francisco, we had promised Jean-Luc a fun weekend when we returned to DFW. We picked him up after school on Friday and had a great time watching E.T., which Jean-Luc had never seen. Grandpa had to go out and get us some Reese's Pieces from the RV park store because, of course, you can't watch E.T. without Reese's Pieces. The long awaited activity was to go to Grapevine Mills where they have a Lego Discovery Center. Jean-Luc has been waiting and waiting to go there. And what fun he had! We got to take...

Two Hams in a Can

Sep 16, 2011 - GrapeFest

This morning, the Avellas were able to move their camping spot closer to the Labowskys. So they disconnected everything and moved two rows closer to the front of the campground. (Now however, they are having problems with the satellite reception.) In their prep for the move, Phyl was moving the LR slide in and had forgotten she had the sink covers leaning up against the dinette. As the slide moved in the covers fell against her right ankle and before she could reverse the movement, the damage was done. At first it seemed just a little...

Retirement Rocks!!

Dec 12, 2010 - The Vineyard, Grapevine TX.

Formerly a COE park the city has taken over and improved significantly. Unlike most COE parks all sites have full hookups. They were building a deck on the site I reserved and had to select another. Convenient to Dallas and found lots to do and eat around Grapevine.
