Dallas Blooms

Supposedly, I am on spring break this week, however, I worked all day Monday, several hours on Tuesday, and got a text message from my superintendent that will require me to make a quick trip back to the office on Thursday. However, B and W took pity and invited me to go with them to the Dallas Arboretum to take in some of the beautiful spring blooms--the first of the season. Tulips were the main attraction on this particular day. It was an absolutely gorgeous weather day-- warm with a slight breeze and plenty of sunshine after cold and wet last week. There were lots of people out and about on this beautiful day and strollers with babies and toddlers were too numerous to count. I wish pictures did justice to what the eyes really beheld, but hope the pictures below give an idea of the beauty of the gardens. It is worth a trip!!

LilE would look great in those pics! Wish we could be one of those families out for a stroll.
We plan to take some family pictures this year when things start to bloom around here!

Elle and I went yesterday. It was absolutely gorgeous. Azaleas were starting to bloom too, so that was a bonus. When I went last year, the tulips had already finished blooming. It was so much prettier this year with them in full bloom.
