June 16 Day 8 Monday

Didn't have a chance to  post anything yesterday because I wanted to put on pictures and didn't have access to wifi. Apparently I can't post pictures from the ipad or iphone. Anyway we had a very nice Father's Day ending with a wonderful dinner at Fogo de Chao in Addison, TX. If you are like me, you haven't been there before. Although they have restaurants all over the US. It is a Brazilian Steakhouse. They have servers and gauchos. The gauchos bring lots of different kinds of meats around on skewers. They cut off a piece and give it to you. The lamb chops were great, plus several different cuts of beef, pork, and chicken. That was the second round of the dinner. The first round was a beautiful help-yourself salad bar. It could have been the whole meal by itself!!


In the above picture (Lon, Natalie, and Rob a friend) you can see my plate of salad!
The coasters are to signal to the gauchos that you want more meat. If you leave it green, they just keep coming back with more meat. Red means STOP! I was going to take a picture of my plate when I started eating but forgot until most of it was gone. :-) It is a very popular restaurant.  They had over 1200 reservations for yesterday. So they served over 2000 guests. Pretty amazing. 
We had a very nice visit with Natalie. Was great for her to spend Father's Day with her dad. She made a big batch of chocolate chip cookies for us to take. A good part of them are gone tonight!!
Tonight we are in Wichita, Kansas. It's very windy and hot but clear. Been 93 most of the day. We left Dallas about 1030 this am. Drove about an hour north to Winstar Casino in Thackerville, OK. It is billed as the world's biggest casino. It goes on forever!!  We had lunch at Toby Keith's Bar and Grill. Was very good. Lon did well on the slots so we left ahead of the game.
Lon is tired tonight but again didn't sleep in the car so he missed his nap. He's in bed already watching the College World Series game with Vanderbilt and UC Irvine. Vandy is winning at this point.
Will try to post tomorrow night since should have wifi. I think we will make it to Denver tomorrow. Will be a long day but want to get out west before it's time to turn around and head home. 
Take care. Have a good night all. Thanks for reading and commenting  when you can. <3


  1. This is a place I would love to try! Looks so yummy!!

  2. Iri is jealous! I showed this to her. We've been to one of these steakhouses with Uncle James during visits to Dallas and Iri is in heaven. -Lucinda
