Fort Worth, Texas Pop. 741,206. Sometimes is it nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the hometown. I have never considered Fort Worth very big, until now. The nice thing about Fort Worth is that it is close to many things. Texas it big enough that it is always pretty easy to find something to do, especially if you get a little creative.
A year ago this weekend I got married. It is hard to believe it has been a year! We went to Victoria, BC, for our honeymoon. I would have loved to go back for our one year anniversary, but unfortunately that just was not in the cards this time. Hopefully next year! But, I wanted to get a way and do something fun somewhat resembling our stay at that wonderful B&B. It was beautiful and right on the water with the mountains in the background and forest behind. The best of all worlds! So, trying to find something somewhat similar, I decided a lake house rental on Granbury Lake it would be! Plus, we get to take Millie with us! She has never been on vacation with us or swimming so I bought her a life jacket to be on the safe side.
To prepare for the weekend I of course had to stop at Central Market to pick up a few goodies and some wine.
When we arrived we found a bottle of champagne with a nice little happy anniversary note from the owners of the lake house. A very sweet surprise!
We unpacked and then went straight for the goodies, summer sausage, cheese, and crackers. This seems to be a common theme with us. When we arrive to our vacation destination we break out the summer sausage, cheese and crackers. Yum.
After we settled in a bit I started grilling. I am not certain when the last time the grill was cleaned because much to my surprise, there was a huge inferno because of all the burned food bits in the bottom of the grill. Fear set in that it was going to explode and burn the nice little lake house down. But, we got that all under control and fortunately my steaks turned out just fine.
Then, we ended the night with a movie and Millie managed to make herself comfortable.
