DALLAS SPRING BREAK: ARBORETUM

I'm back for part two of our Dallas spring break adventure.  You can see the Great Wolf Lodge portion of our trip here!  I was going to do one big blog post, but when I realized how many pictures I had of our last day, I decided to make it a separate post.  Time with these friends was such a gift!

We packed up on Friday morning and headed to the Old West Cafe, recommended by a friend as the best breakfast in town.  And it was amazing!  So many delicious options and so much food.

From there, we spent the rest of the day at the Dallas Arboretum which was in full bloom and stunning.  Seriously - it was gorgeous everywhere we looked!

There's an expansive children's section that kept us occupied for hours.

To round out our fun, we walked through the garden section.  SO MANY FLOWERS.

We get to see each other so rarely - like every 4 years or so.  And every time you wonder a little - how will this be?  It's been so long.  But it is always really wonderful.  That is the beauty of relationships built on the Lord.  It doesn't hurt that Greg and John's friendship goes back to when John was but a wee 8th grader.  Greg is more older brother than anything else, and I am so thankful for his impact in John's life.  Thank you, Benno family, for making the time to see us - we so enjoyed our time with you all!
