Golfing And Rusty Tacos In Dallas

Posted by Alexander

Cruising the Texas highway.
We had a plan to visit an old friend of Dad’s while we were in Dallas. Matt and Dad went way back which actually led to a lot of remembering sessions and it was kind of cool to see them both piece it all together. Matt and Gillian’s kids are Trevor and Olivia and we had a pretty great time hanging out with them. They are 13 and 11 so finally we got to meet some kids that were closer to my age. They have a pool in their back yard so we were able to go swimming when the Texas heat got to us. Trevor has a Ps3 and a Ps4 so we played some video games as well as shot each other with nerf guns.

Matt and Gill are really nice too. They took us to this place called Top Golf. It’s a big driving range with lots of little bays big enough for a family and you can tee off from there. Basically we took turns whacking golf balls and sending them as far as we could. There were also big nets that were targets. I actually did better than I thought I would but I have taken a few lessons when I was younger so I guess that helped. We all had lunch at Top golf.  It was really good and everyone had a great time.

It took a bit of doing, but I remembered how to swing a golf club.

The next day Trevor and Olivia went early because they had sports. We had breakfast and then went to watch them. Trevor was playing a championship baseball game and we went to watch him first. The other team was had way bigger kids than Trevor’s but they still lost in the end and Trevor’s team won the championship and got trophies. Yaaaay!

Then we went to watch Olivia’s volleyball. She was against a team which had very short players. They were still way better at volleyball than I am. It was really cool to see them play. In the end Olivia’s team was victorious. Afterwards we went to a place called the Rusty Taco for lunch. It was authentic TexMex and it was actually pretty good. There was this weird melty cheese stuff called queso and it was better than I expected it to be.

Good lunch with great people.
After the Rusty Taco we had to go but we are hoping to see those guys again soon.
