Today was intended to be a rest day; but as mentioned in yesterday's blog, we needed to complete our Grapevine Mills shopping experience, so shop we did. Compared to yesterday, the shopping was great as (a) it wasn't a weekend and (b) students, adults and parents were at school/work. These factors reduced the shopping population ten-fold. We managed to catch some great bargains including shoes, clothes and many things that we really don't need.
After shopping and lunch we needed to run a few errands including finding a Post Office, which we located and arranged a package to be sent to Anchorage, Alaska. We then decided to go and check out 48,000 seat open Ballpark, Globe Life Park, home of the Texas Rangers Baseball Team.

We then headed the short distance to check out the 80,000 seat AT&T Arena, home of the Dallas Cowboys, the third largest stadium in the NFL (by numbers). It can actually host 108,000 fans with 28,000 standing.

For the record, Bob (the GPS) and I got on pretty well today with only one slight detour of no real consequence. I actually think we can make this work.
