I have always heard great things about taking kids to the Dallas Arboretum, but the only time I had ever been was for a friend's wedding several years ago sans kids. So I was all for it when my mom suggested we go on Tuesday morning! We bundled the kids up (perhaps a little more excessively than necessary - we are Texans, after all!), met up with my sister and niece, and spent the whole morning there.
This little lady didn't get her morning nap and she spent more than 2 hours trapped in her stroller, often facing the sun, but she was a total trooper. I think I'll keep her.
It was fun to watch these two goofs interact with each other while we were there. They are only 9 months apart in age, but they don't get to see each other often, so it always takes a little time for them (mostly Davis, who is majorly socially awkward with his cousins for some reason?!) to warm up.
Though it started to get more crowded as we left, we were pleasantly surprised to find the place pretty empty for most of the morning. No competition on the celery slide or giant ant for this guy!
And no competition for my sister, who was busy hatching out of her egg.
It was a great way to spend the morning and an even greater way to expend some of Davis's endless energy. Looking forward to going there again on future visits to the Big D!
