Hello, my bucket list friends ! All good vacations must come to an end and Last Wednesday was the day my Texas Vacation ended. ( you can read my other blog posts about my vacation here ,here ,here and here ) On October 17th my mom and I left Texas to go back home to California . At the airport while we waited for our flight I bought a new snow globe and a cute little Texas teddy bear ! It was fun to do some shopping but I had a mission to accomplish as soon as I got back to California . The night before Alice Cooper had signed my arm and drew a cross underneath it and I needed to get it tattooed as soon as possible because it was already starting to fade ! I kept looking at my arm all throughout the flight to make sure it wasn’t too faded. I was worried that after I had slept on it that it would be to faded to tattoo over . As soon as my dad picked us up at the airport we went right to a tattoo shop that only takes walk ins . There were no other customers in the shop at the time so it was able to get it done right away . It only took a few minutes and it turned out really well ! I was so happy that it was not to faded to tattoo over . To sum this all up my vacation was awesome and I love my new Alice Cooper signature tattoo !

Texas Vacation part 3
Tuesday October 16th was our last full day in Texas before we flew home on Wednesday. We had two big things planned one daytime and one nighttime activity . Our day time activity was a self guided tour of AT&T stadium where the Dallas Cowboys play . My mom is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan so we had to make sure we included a trip to the stadium while we were in Texas . I have to start out by saying that this Stadium is amazing ! Even if you are not a football fan it is worth checking out . The best part of taking a tour is that you get to go down on the field ! You can take pictures and even play football . They hand out footballs for you to use . I had a fun time playing catch with my mom on a real NFL football field ! I also enjoyed the press conference room, It’s was cool to stand on the stage like you were giving a press conference ! We also got to see the locker rooms of both the players and cheerleaders. It was cool seeing all the names on the lockers . It turns out that there is a cheerleader named Christina. It was fun standing next to her locker pretending that it was mine ! I love going to gift shops when I go somewhere fun and this place has a huge store ! There was so much stuff to see it was pretty amazing . I got some cool Dallas Cowboy buttons . Overall it was a really great place to visit and I recommend going here if you get the chance too . That’s part 3 thank you for reading!

Hello, my bucket list friends I’m very excited to dive right into part 2 of my amazing Texas vacation ! ( you can read part one here ). Now on to part 2 !
Texas vacation part two
On Monday the rain was pouring down just like the weather report had said it would so it was a very good thing that we completed our outdoor activities the day before . The first activity for the day was the Perot museum of nature and science. The museum is a pretty good size with a lot to see and do . In addition to a variety of exciting and interesting exhibits there is also a 3D theater it requires a separate ticket . There were three movies to chose from there is one about dinosaurs , one about music history and the one we chose about oceans and underwater life . we had some time before our movie started so we started exploring the museum . There were some fun interactive exhibits I liked being able to drive a little robot and getting to crawl through a cave . There were also some amazing gems to look at but we had to take a break from the exhibits to go see the movie . I loved the Ocean movie it was so beautiful ! I loved seeing all kinds of sea animals in 3D ! After the movie we went to explore the rest of museum . I enjoyed the dinosaur and bird exhibits there was so much to see I recommend going to the Perot museum if you get the chance to .
After the museum we went to our next activity the George bush presidential library and museum. I really enjoyed this museum I find it interesting to learn about other people’s lives . It was awesome to get an in depth look of his presidency . One of my favorite parts of the museum was the decision room theater where you got a bunch of different information and had to make the best decision you could just like the president had to ! I also enjoyed the recreation of the Oval Office . This is another place I recommend going to if you are in the Dallas area . That’s part 2 of My Texas vacation !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I just got back from a fun filled vacation to Texas ! There is so much to write about so I’m going to doing more than one post about my latest vacation . So let’s dive into part 1 !
Texas vacation part 1
On Saturday October 13th my mom and I flew out to Texas . It was quite an ordeal to get there because due to weather in Texas our flight got cancelled . We got on another flight but we had to go back downstairs to ticketing to get new boarding passes then back up through security again . It all worked out but we go to Dallas late so we didn’t have any time to do anything other than go to bed .
On Sunday , there was a break in the rain but according to the weather report that would be our only day to do outdoor activities . It was going to be tough but we were going to have to do the State Fair of Texas and the Dallas zoo in one day ! We started our day at the state Fair . It was kind of hard to find our way around but we managed to see and do a lot in the short time we had . We got to ride some fun rides including the sky way and the swing ride and I did the carousel of course . We got to see cows , goats , and horses and a few exhibits before it was time to leave . I bought a necklace as a souvenir and had some lemonade . After all our fair fun it was time to head to the zoo . When we got to the Dallas zoo we only had a few hours before it closed but we made the very most of it . It is a pretty good sized zoo. We saw penguins , elephants , a hippopotamus , flamingos and lots of other animals ! The aviary was fun to explore I loved seeing all the different kinds of birds there . There is a really nice gift shop where I got a new snow globe for my collection along with some other fun souvenirs. There was a carousel but because we were short on time I did not get the chance to ride it . Overall the state fair of Texas and the Dallas zoo are a lot of fun, I just wish we would have had more time to explore them. Even After all our fair and zoo fun we had one more activity to do before the rain came . That night we went to the reunion tower. I had fun time exploring the Geo deck and looking at the beautiful view of Dallas and yes they have a gift shop ! After all that exploration we were very tired and ready to called it a day !
That’s the end of part one ! Rock on Christina Epperly
