I have some great summer memories, of my own. It's really hard to choose one, but I decided to share our trip to Fort Worth Texas in June of 2012. That was a memorable time because it was all about family, travel, and a wedding in the Arlington area.

We checked out the food, shopping, and museums at Sundance Square, the bustling cultural district in downtown Fort Worth. And we toured Bass Hall, the permanent home to the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Texas Ballet Theater, Fort Worth Opera, and the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and Cliburn Concerts.

The highlight of the trip, aside from the wedding of course, was a tour of the AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys. It's a one of a kind experience, unlike any other stadium I've seen.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, I hope you enjoyed mine.

The only time I was in TX was for spring break at South Pedro Isle. I would love to see the rest of the state.

Growing up my parents would load us up in the van full of camping equipment and we'd just take off for a few weeks. No real plan about where we were going it's was so much fun. I saw almost all 50 states during those trips over the years and got to spend a lot of fun times with my family.

We always spent 2 weeks of the Summer at my Aunt and Uncles house they lived near the beach. There were me and my sister and there four children great times.

Thank you for sharing your story and those wonderful pictures. I haven't done much traveling and highly doubt I ever will. So it's always fun to see how much fun other have had and what types of things they've seen.
