I had an amazing time on our anniversary trip to Dallas & Fort Worth area. It was a great way to relax and get away from the busy happenings that life has thrown at us lately and just have a chance to focus on each other. A big thank you goes out to my daddy and his significant other for taking Jase and showing him an amazing time while his mommy and daddy were away.
This post will be extremely long because of the sheer number of beautiful pics I got. If you want to know the short version, we went to the Dallas Arboretum and saw the Chihuly glass exhibit. We went to the Crowe Asian Art Museum and to the sculpture garden. It was a lot of fun! Now if you want to brave the length keep reading 🙂
We arrived in Fort Worth where our hotel was located on Thursday evening pretty late. Here a few iPhone pics of our room.
Unfortunately, the restaurant we went to was very lack luster. It was okay in the food department, but I guess I was just expecting more from a place that would be featured on the Food Network. I probably wouldn’t eat there again.After we finished, we had to go all the way to Dallas to the Arboretum. Here is the part where I admit that I did us a disservice by booking our hotel where I did. Yes, it was close to the motor speedway. Yes, it was very clean. Yes, it was a great price, but as far as it being in a central area where we could get around easily…that it was NOT! We had to go down Highway 114 in Dallas and boy was that a cluster. We got stuck on it more than once on our weekend adventure and I have to admit a few dirty words were said mainly towards the GPS because she kept “recalculating” with all of the construction. We would literally be on the highway in stop and go traffic for over an hour+. Not my idea of relaxing, but we managed.
I am so glad we braved all of the construction to get to the Arboretum. Out of all of the things we did it is my favorite. I feel so peaceful when I am out enjoying God’s creation. The fact that there was Chihuly glass everywhere made God’s creation even more beautiful and I was literally mesmerized by the beauty that surrounded me. Brace yourself for the beauty that follows…this will be the bulk of this post PICTURES!!!
And now for all of the beauty in nature…
God and his creation are so full of beauty.
So since this post has gotten SO extremely long, I think I will save the museum for another post on another day. If you are still here, thanks for braving the length with me I hope you weren’t disappointed by the adventure through the Dallas Arboretum.
