Cherry Blossoms in the Spring

Dallas Arboretum in the Spring

     Blooming Azaleas-endless blankets of pink and purple loveliness interupting steps of wonder

          Toddlers dressed in Sunday’s finest, bows on heads, barefeet tickled by soft, green grass

                 Teenage beauties in rhinestone dresses, sparkling tierras, and primping mamas

                      Tulips-sorbet lemon chiffon my favorite flavor, with orange and yellow sherberts parading behind

                            Cherry Blossoms adorned in bridal white with bees working tirelessly, buzzing from bloom-to-bloom.

                                  Beautiful Day filled with blossoms floating on the tiers of Spring’s gentle breeze.

Day #192

Mayans, Monkeys, Birds, Owls & Sharks

The Dallas World Acquarium is definitely a recommended site to visit in Dallas.  Brett, Leanna, BG and I walked from their apartment.  We had quite a line initially, but it moved quickly and we took pictures with the Mayan dancers while we waited.  Once you enter, you are surrounded by a rainforest with birds flying freely,  and animals in natural habitats.  Enjoy the pictures:

Friday Night Birthday Celebration in Dallas!

BG’s big 60 birthday–whew hew!  We drove to Brett & Leanna’ s home in Dallas Friday morning and celebrated BG’s big birthday with an amazing view of the city from their rooftop, and a wonderful Italian dinner at Patrizios.  Brett, Leanna and I  started off splitting  their very popular grilled chicken salad,  while BG enjoyed a scrumptious  portebello mushroom salad.  He shared with all of us, of course.  We then feasted on Eggplant Parmesan, open-faced ravioli with artichokes and asparagus, Penne Cabrese, and a chicken  mushroom lasagna.  Delicious.  We rode back through Turtle Creek with pink azaleas and tulips in full bloom!  Leanna had baked BG a St. Pat’s birthday cake decorated with shamrocks and sentiments.  A great evening, indeed!
