Halloween 2006

In the past 2 weeks was crazy. Actually it wasn’t until we decided to go to Key West for Fantasy Festival. We were just waiting for our weekend trip to Dallas, Texas for the Halloween and one of our friends invited us to go with them to Key West for Fantasy Festival which is only a week before the opening week. At first we tried to swap weekends since we were already booked for our flight to Dallas, Texas and already paid for our Halloween Party that didn’t work out for us, so we decided to go the opening weekend. Our plan was to come back to Tampa Sunday and ended up coming back Tuesday and its only 2 days before our flight. I unpacked and pack our stuffs again and Dallas here we come.

Our flight was October 26, 2006, Thursday at 6:00 o’clock (hated it since I have to wake up really early and it was cold but who am I to complain, we have to take the good with the bad). We arrive in Dallas around 10:00 am. We got our rental car and ready for our road trip around 11:00am. We drove towards Oklahoma City to see the Oklahoma City Memorial where it was bombed in 1995 which killed people and innocent children.

At 4:00pm we started driving towards Carlsbad, New Mexico to see Carlsbad Caverns National Park. The park was amazing. It’s a huge cave with pretty and unbelievable formations inside. It was all worth walking and everything just to see nature’s at its best. Seeing it personally surely makes you appreciate its beauty

Our plan was to go back to Dallas, Texas after Carlsbad Caverns but we spent more time than what we have in our itinerary so we decided to stay somewhere and next time we know we were running out of gas I mean we were on empty and the guy that we talked to said that gas stations were 35 miles either way. We just got lucky because the Guadalupe Mountains National Park Visitor Center was selling gas for emergency (Thanks God). Since we were already in the park we decided to take a look, it’s all free maybe because the park is not as pretty as a typical national park. Ray and I were arguing where to go next since we were not going back to Dallas right yet. Finally decided to go to El Paso to stay for the night and maybe find a club to hang out. We were going to at least drive to Mexico but traffic was really bad. We went to a club and started driving to Dallas in the morning. Back to Dallas around 5:00 pm. We’re excited for the Halloween Party. We already have our reservations and everything. I had my Lion Outfit and I love it. Actually bought it a month earlier (so excited it’s my first time to dress up for Halloween). The party was fun and the club was pretty pack, we can hardly walk towards the bathroom

Sunday is intended for Dallas sightseeing. We went to the Texas School Book Depository building where Lee Harvey Oswald shut President John F. Kennedy. We came back to our hotel room for the football game. We went to the Japanese Garden in Fort Worth after the game. The garden was quite disappointing. It wasn’t worth 30 minutes driving. The pictures are nicer than seeing it with our eyes. Finally got done with our trip and left Dallas around 7:00 pm and back in Tampa around 12:00am.

Aside from running empty on gas there was no problem. We came home safe. Thanks God
