The Big "D"!

Last weekend was Mister's belated b-day trip
to "The Big D" - Dallas.  
It was a "Need to Know" themed weekend
so he had no idea what we had planned
until it was time to drive there by putting the
address into the Garmin.

Saturday was sunny, brisk, cold and be-U-ti-ful!
We spent a good long while at the
Dallas Arboretum.
Who knew there was so-much-pretty
to be seen this time of year!

*Some Friends we met along our way!*

This little Christmas "friend" was in the Gift Shop.

some of the other things
we saw & did
on our weekend away.

We're glad you were able to keep the Big D surprise!! What a lovely destination. I've never been to Texas..just the airport in Huston on the way back from Hawaii.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Wow! Very nice. I love surprises like that. There was a photo of a bench in one of the photos that looked like home to me.
