While we were in Dallas last weekend, Laura & Bryan were kind enough to think of some non-athletic activities to keep us busy but keep our legs rested the day before the half marathon. After grabbing lunch and hitting the race expo, we headed towards White Rock, a really beautiful area of Dallas, to stop at the Dallas Arboretum. Right now, the Arboretum is hosting a Chihuly exhibit, and it looks like there’s only 15 days left, so it’s definitely worth a quick trip if you are in the area and haven’t been. Note – expect to shuttle in on busy weekends like we did, not a big deal, but adds a little time to your trip.
We enjoyed walking around the exhibits and seeing all the crazy glass works. We kept thinking – if you were skydiving, wouldn’t this be the worst thing to land on?!
One of my favorite parts… lots of varieties of Kale!
Some more glass works:
We tried a cool jumping shot, but apparently I wasn’t in sync with L + B.
Who, are super photogenic, I might add.
My photos, on the other hand, are of me kissing a floating head in a bush…
The Arboretum would be an excellent spot to bring a picnic/wine for a date night and enjoy the lake views. Just try not to photo bomb all the bridal shots taking place too much!
