Thanks everyone! We've finally touched down in Dallas with only Bec getting any sleep on the SYD to LAX!

Bit tired & just waiting for the shuttle to make a move, more issues with that as they had no record of our booking but we're not letting anything get us down! That will be dealt with when we're back.

Good to hear you made it and even better to hear you aren't letting little glitches stop you from enjoying yourself.

Have fun.

We've got ants in the bathroom too. They're coming or going from behind the power point near the sink and they're leaving bits of dirt or something all over the place. DH is a sparky and he said they're not going to cause our house to catch on fire, so I guess they're just preparing their ant houses for the coming wet season by moving to higher ground. It is annoying but I'd rather they live in the bathroom than hang out in my kettle like they normally do at this time of the year

Enjoy your trip.

Thanks everyone we've been up in Dallas since 2.30am (6am now) after a few hours of sleep so hopefully tomorrow we can work out the sleeping better lol I'd love to sleep for more then 3 hours!

We had Pizza Hut for dinner & we found the dough quite sweet & the cheese was different to what we have in Aus but it was soo yummy!!! Did not finish the 3 pizzas we got between 5 girls & no fridge to save it so but of a bummer, oh well.

Feeling better after a shower (what an adventure with the tap system our room has lol) and some sleep, not long till we can getting ready for some breakie & shopping

More to report later

Started the day with IHOP, was just okay IMO, had a great day shopping at the Grapevine outlets, spent about $110 including $47 at the Disney outlet

We also had our first taste of Walmart. Oh my goodness!!! It had McDonalds inside it plus a bank, toilets and an optometrist. We could not believe the prices & they had great Disney tops for kids for $7.50 which fit us as they went to XXL (size 19) and L fit me (11-13 :O) and XL fit Bec (15-17). We'll be going back to explore properly then we tried Whataburger for dinner which was quite yummy & as we skipped lunch I only left some bun from a regular meal

Bummer to hear Ihop wasn't that good. I've always wanted to try it.

Sounds like you got some real bargains today. Walmart sounds amazing, I hope to see one someday.

Loving the live updates, thanks for taking the time.
