ONLY WITH THE GRANDPARENTS!
After I tell you about our day, you will understand.....We slept in until after 10 so decided we would go to market tomorrow...Since we had missed breakfast, we headed out for the CHEESECAKE FACTORY. It should really be called the DECISION FACTORY.
Parker and I love their pizza and Pop wanted fettuccine, so that decision was EASY. The BIG DECISION is the CHEESECAKE....Finally Parker chose the RED VELVET and the HOT FUDGE SUNDAE CHEESECAKE....for us to share. I hope YOU do not gain any pounds from looking at it...
THIS IS WHERE THE GRANDPARENT PART COMES IN. I had located all the GAME STOPS in the area of where we were eating, so we put them in the navigation system and DROVE, and DROVE and DROVE some more, only to find the first one had moved. Then we decided we would try the one on Preston (for any of you that live in DALLAS)....found it after about an hour of looking. Parker turned in all the games he wanted to trade and got a LARGE credit. Then the really nice guy that worked there told us the 3rd largest Game Stop in the nation was at Preston and Park...No problem...about a 20 minute drive, but no big deal....PARKER was in shock when he saw how big it was...TOTALLY OVERWHELMING, so he needed some time...Take all the time you need....We went next door to Barnes and Noble and Parker spent an hour looking at all the games. This was truly a boy that loves GAMES dream place. Guess what? The one game he REALLY wanted, they were out of, BUT the GAME STOP at The SHOPS at Willow Bend had it and would hold it for him...No problem, it was only about 15 minutes away. At this point we had spent about 4 hours looking for and in Game Stops...ONLY GRANDPARENTS WOULD DO THIS. You have NEVER seen a HAPPIER BOY!
AFTER all the GAME SHOPPING, we made a few stops at Target, Steinmart, and Tuesday Morning. (and found Jack a WOODY outfit)
then back to the HOTEL to play the GAMES....and eat left over cheesecake. So tonight we are STUFFED and TIRED, BUT HAVE ONE LITTLE MAN that is SO HAPPY. Moral of the story..IF you ever need to know where a GAME STOP is in DALLAS, CALL ME!
