The Dallas Arboretum

Mike’s mom wanted to give us a membership somewhere in Dallas for Louise’s first birthday. After doing a bit of research, we decided the Arboretum would be the best option. We snagged our membership cards when we were in New Orleans a couple of weeks ago and decided to try it out this past Sunday. It was really nice weather…a little hot but breezy. And obviously there’s a lot of shade at the Arboretum.

I think Louise really liked it.

We let her romp around a bit in one of the patches of grass. I honestly don’t think she’s ever walked on grass before…parenting fail.

Mike and I went back last night for one of their summer concerts (this one was the Eagles cover band). I gathered the essentials at Central Market over lunch – baguette, meats, cheeses, and wine – and we relaxed for a few hours.

It was nice to chill out on a weekday sans baby…reminded me of a few years ago. =)

I’m looking forward to a year full of fun trips to the Arboretum!
