I got another scrapbook layout done, yeah for me! This finishes up my two layouts of our weekend getaway a couple of years ago to Dallas TX.
I won tickets off a local radio station to go to the Dixie Chicks concert over there (before they went to England and said nasty things about President Bush and the US). We flew over on my birthday (Oct 2002) and had a great weekend. The actual highlight of the trip for us was not the concert, but that afternoon: we spent several hours at the Sixth Floor Museum and Dealey Plaza, in downtown Dallas, just a few blocks from our hotel (Hyatt Regency at Reunion Towers). This is where President Kennedy was assassinated and there’s a great museum inside what was the Texas Book Depository. It covers the Kennedy’s lives (both JFK and Jackie) before his presidency, then all aspects of his presidency, then of course in depth of the assassination, including conspiracy theories, the Warren Commission and other areas. We learned a lot about that day, and about other things like the Cuban Missile Crisis and events that occurred during Kennedy’s stint in office. I think we both thoroughly enjoyed it, but of course - we are big history buffs!
Here’s the layout I just finished covering the museum (no pics allowed inside) and Dealey Plaza:
Oh, and the bottom right picture on the right hand page is of the street - there’s a big X on the road where he was shot.
