Dallas Blooms

Spring Break is almost officially over and we had a great week!  Lucas took off, so we were able to spend lots of good, quality family time together.  While most of the week was low key, we spent Friday at the Dallas Arboretum with my parents, having a picnic and enjoying the beautiful day.  Each year during the spring, the Arboretum has an event called Dallas Blooms.  There were thousands and thousands of flowers in bloom and almost as many people there to see them!  We had to park about a half mile or so away and ride a shuttle bus to the park.  It actually worked out great, though, because we didn't have to pay for parking and they dropped us right at the gate.  We ended up purchasing a family membership so that we can go back again.  Several times when I was a child we had a family membership, so I'm excited to get to do that again.  I'm especially excited to go back in the fall when they have all of the pumpkins on display!

We had a wonderful picnic under a tree, saw tons of tulips, took a lot of pictures, and dreamed of bringing Emily back in the future when she'll be able to play in the froggy fountains.  We can't wait to go back again soon!

This is the life.
