Bob is taking a construction accounting exam for his CCIFP (Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional) certification at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, May 5. I'm along for the ride. New territory...oh boy!
Our drive along I-35 was uneventful except for some big construction along the way. (They're building a whole new freeway.) Sections of I-35 are new (and nice!). Other sections are narrow two lanes with concrete barriers, i.e., no shoulders at all. Thankfully we were in the Escape pod and not towing the 5th wheel.
As we traveled north, green grasses waved in the breeze. The temperature hovered around 90 degrees, but it was dry and very pleasant.
Upon arrival in Grapevine, Texas, we drove to the Gaylord Texan Convention Center where Bob will be taking the test Monday. Across the highway from the convention center is Great Wolf Lodge. In case you've never heard of Great Wolf Lodge, it's a family-oriented hotel with a huge water park. There are a few of them scattered around the U.S. We've also seen one south of Olympia, Washington.

As we were driving to historic downtown Grapevine, we spotted a Comfort Inn. That's where we decided to spend the night.

Then it was back to the motel to watch Amazing Race and settle in for the night. Bob studied for his test. I finished Divergent and started Insurgent, both part of the trilogy by Veronica Roth.
