I've never tried Weinberger's, it sounds great!

Trying to picture Pete in Texas...

Walter, I get. Pete- not so much!

Although I would love to see my friends on MY home turf for a change!

The very first DIS meet I ever went to was June 2000. It was at Dick Clark's Grill in Grapevine Mills Mall. That was a longggg time ago. Every now and then Dan Murphy posts pictures of the M's as babies at that meet. They are now 15 and almost 12.

I'm glad people like the Weinberger idea. He was very friendly and enthusiastic. If I haven't heard from Pete by Sunday afternoon with possible dates I'll get feedback from you guys about a date. For some reason October 1 stands out as a good day. Have no idea why!

Count us in!! There is a small group of us here in the DFW area that have been meeting for quite a while. I don't think many of them are as active on the DIS as we all used to be - I will post on FB and let them know to check this out!!

Have a GKTW family that is willing to come to our DisMeet to talk to us about what the GKTW experience meant to them. Will let you know as soon as I hear back from Pete.

How are people feeling about Saturday, October 1?

Mommy2allgirls and anyone else who wants to help...Once we set a date I will work on firming up the location. Then I think I'll have a better idea of what needs to be done to get us ready for the big day!
