We also stopped along the way and got Sonic drinks.
We arrived at Mom's house around 3:30 and spent some time visiting. Then we headed down to Main Street in Grapevine for dinner. If I have a hometown, I would consider Grapevine my hometown (I lived there from 1st grade to 6th grade...to this day, the longest I have lived anywhere). It was great to see Main Street. They have it all decorated for Christmas and have Christmas music playing over a sound system installed all the way up and down the street. We reminisced over days of Christmas parades and such as we walked to a "new" restaraunt. Tolbert's was started by one of the founders of the Teriligua Chili Cookoff. It is a spot where they have live music most nights of the week while they serve lunch and dinner. Mom got the catfish dinner, I got Arturo's Grilled Cheese and Drew got a cup of Red (real chili...no beans) and Buffalo wings. The food was great and the atmosphere lively. Drew wants to come again to have the Five Alarm Chili next time. Here are the pics:
