Exploring Dallas

We have recently checked out a few places in Dallas that we have never seen/been before.  After living here 3+ years we finally:

Went to the Arboretum with Brett's parents.  The theme is Fairy Tale Castles at the moment.  Once again this is all from my phone so I don't have as many pics as I would like.  We got a membership there so if anyone comes to visit we will go.  It's beautiful!
We had dinner downtown with Nic and Licci at a sushi restaurant with this great view.  We never go downtown and have never had such a cool view of the Dallas skyline at night!

Saturday morning we went to the Farmer's Market for the first time. It was great.  We got a lot of really fresh fruits and veggies, some Ribeyes and a few hanging baskets for our front porch.  This was alot of fun and the prices are comparable or less than the grocery.  We are going to try to shop here more.

Saturday afternoon we went with Brooke and Clark to check out some of the new restaurant/bars that have opened.  We went to The Ice House, The Nodding Donkey and then had dinner at The Blue Goose.  This is a pic of a giant dog at one place.  We had such a good time with them!!  Glad they invited us to tag along :)

There are a few more places we have heard of here that we want to check out.  The Dallas Aquarium, The Art Museum and eating at "the ball" downtown are on the list!

  1. All of these activities sound so fun..for some reason the pics did not come through on my computer, but it's probably just my computer. The arboretum was so pretty when we went in the fall. I love the farmer's market too,i think jefferson is getting one-which doesn't matter since i live in louisville i guess
