Dallas Arboretum





Since last week was Spring Break, I got a vacation too. Pops took off on Friday and we decided to go to the Dallas Arboretum. I can't believe that I have lived in the Metroplex for 48 years and have never been there before. I have heard about it for years. It was absolutely beautiful. The pictures don't do it justice.

We first stopped off at Eatzi's and got some lunch and took it with us. I always get the sandwich on bonebread. It is really thin, crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. You really have to work to eat it, and it is really messy, but worth it.

We walked around for a couple of hours and it was great. It was a little windy, but was around 65 degrees. That doesn't happen very often in Texas. A lot of vines and trees were not in bloom yet, and there were still a lot of pansies. We are going to go back in about 3 or 4 weeks when all of the spring flowers are out. I am sure it will probably be about 90 then too.

Lolly,
I have to tell you that I'm originally from Dallas/Ft. Worth. Something that I really miss about Dallas is the skyline, and the great food.

Thanks for stopping by my site and for your encouragement!
