Well, it has been a fairly eventful couple of weeks!  We have been to Dallas and New Mexico.  We went to an aquarium and concert as well as snowboarding.  All-in-all it was mostly a great time, mostly.

It started 2 weeks ago with a train ride to Fort Worth.  We took the Heartland Express from OKC to Fort Worth, rented a car and headed to Dallas.  Of course to get there you have to pass through Arlington, the home of Cowboy's Stadium.  What an amazing building!  It was closed to tours because they were preparing for the Cotton Bowl the next day :-(  Next time.

We checked into our hotel in Dallas, then walked about 4 blocks to American Airlines Center.  The whole reason for the trip was to see the OKC Thunder play (and defeat) the Dallas Mavericks!  It was a lot of fun and we did indeed prevail!

The next day we went to the Dallas Aquarium.  It was a little oasis in the middle of downtown Dallas.  Then it was off the the train station to head back to OKC.  That was Friday night.

Saturday after church, we headed off to New Mexico.  Early the next morning we hit the slopes.  After about 4 runs downs, we hit the lodge for lunch and then I headed back to the slopes.  This is where "mostly" comes into play.  After getting off of the lift, and down the ramp area, I fell.  I fallen getting off the lift, at the bottom of this ramp, in the flat area where you get your board strapped on, lots of times going down the mountain, and lots of times much harder.  This time was different and I knew it immediately.  Although it didn't really hurt, I knew I had broken my wrist.  Removing my glove confirmed it. After ski patrol, a trip to Taos and the ER, I spent the rest of the week inn the lodge.  I did have the company of my little buddy Brendan on occasion and the evenings were nice with friends.

Back home we went to the George Strait/Reba concert.  Another thing to check off the bucket list!  It was a great evening and our first date night since August.

Oh yeah, now I have a great blue cast!
