Life in Dallas: First Two Weeks

Once I uploaded the following pictures, I realized there is a theme to the pictures. Let's just ignore the beverages and focus on the people, cool?

My first weekend was spent hanging out with my parents and friends. Activities included dinner at Flying Fish with my parents, a run on the Katy Trail with my dad, dinner with James and Kristen at Komali, another run on the Katie trail with Natalia, and a Rangers game with my dad.

The Rangers won the last game of their season, which meant they played an additional game against Tampa Bay for a wildcard spot.  My company decided to rent a box for the game, which meant I returned to the Ballpark in Arlington on Monday night for more baseball. Admittedly I felt bad that I went without my dad considering he is a giant Rangers fan... but since they lost I didn't feel too bad.

This past weekend was awesome because Joe came to visit me! We planned to go to the fair yesterday, but thanks to some rain and cold weather we opted to postpone the fair until today. Instead we went to the Cottonwood Art Festival before picking up my parents and eating lunch at Hattie's in the Bishop Arts District. It was fun to explore Bishop Arts, especially because it feels like a little piece of Austin inside Dallas.  Neither Joe nor I were up for doing much else, so we stayed in that evening and joined my dad in a beer tasting. (Having a dad in the the beer/wine industry is pretty great!)
It's been a fun two weeks, and I must admit that I am really enjoying Dallas! Of course, it's much better when Joe comes to visit, but even so it's a pretty cool city.
