Do I have to? I’d really prefer to forget most of my experience at this year’s Royal Rumble. This post is long overdue, especially considering that the Royal Rumble occurred almost 3 months ago.  It has taken me this long to organize my thoughts & feelings in such a way that I don’t come off sounding too disgruntled.  I’m feeling much better about it now & I hope that you’ll be entertained by my experience.    To borrow Kid Frosty’s phrase, “Here we go!” I love professional wrestling, & the WWE in particular! I’ve been a wrestling fan ever since […]

Remember the Rumble

Though it may sound like the beginning of a joke, it was actually a question asked during our tour of the Waco Mammoth National Monument. The answer to that will come later, but first let’s talk about our visit.  Added to the National Parks System in 2015, we included this site on our road trip when we found ourselves with a couple of hours to burn in Waco. “This paleontological site represents the nation’s only recorded discovery of a nursery herd of Columbian mammoths.  Visitors can view “in situ” fossils including female mammoths, a bull mammoth, and a camel that lived […]

Why Did the Camel Hang Out With the Mammoth?

To celebrate the observance of Good Friday & Easter Sunday, we’re going to revisit one of the stops we made on our recent road trip. In Groom, Texas we experienced one of our most meaningful stops at the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ Ministries. From miles away, you can see their 19-story cross alongside Route 40. As you get closer, you can feel this magnificent cross drawing you toward it. There are numerous large crosses scattered across the country, including one very close to our home, but this one has some extra features that are worth a visit & […]

Stations of the Cross

Magnolia Market at the Silos has helped to make Waco, Texas a must-stop whenever you visit the Lonestar State. Like most everyone else, we’re huge fans of Chip & Joanna Gaines & their show Fixer Upper on HGTV. Without a doubt, this is the stop that Mrs. Frosty had been looking forward to most of all! To say that Fixer Upper & Magnolia Market has brought attention to Waco is a huge understatement. We asked one of the first workers we saw how crowded it normally gets. He said that most days they have 4,000-7,000 visitors! He said we came […]

Magnolia Market at the Silos

Dallas, Texas is known for many things: the Cowboys, the Cowboy Cheerleaders, JR & the Ewing’s, oil money, Ross Perot, longhorn steer, barbecue.  However, the #1 thing that comes to mind for many people is JFK’s assassination outside the Texas School Book Depository at Dealey Plaza. Our family road trip brought us to Dallas where we saw many fun & interesting sights, ate some great food, & visited some cool places, but it also included the requisite visit to the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza. Kid Frosty recently read a book about the life of President John F. Kennedy, so we […]

Reliving November 22, 1963 – Dallas, Texas

AT&T Stadium (a.k.a JerryWorld) is home to the Dallas Cowboys, & in recent years, has become a “home away from home” for the University of Alabama. Up to this point, we haven’t been able to attend any of the Alabama games at AT&T Stadium, so all we’d seen of it was from television. We can happily say that is no longer true as we were able to tour the stadium on our road trip.   AT&T Stadium is more than a football stadium, it’s a world of facts and figures about the world’s largest domed structure, an art museum, a […]

He’s at the 10… the 5… Touchdown Kid Frosty!!!
