Since we decided to cut back on television, I thought it would give us the perfect opportunity to explore and be more active around the Dallas-Fort Worth area. After all, being in a big city offers lots of events, museums, entertainment, gardens, parks, zoos, etc...
So in order to avoid the crowds and the heat, we loaded into the car around 8:30 and arrived shortly after it opened at 9 am. Part of the reason I was so excited to go is they currently have an exhibit going showing the large blown-glass sculptures by Dale Chihuly. It looked impressive on the television ads, but it was even more so in-person.
Mexican Hat & Horn Tower
Yellow Icicle Tower
Scarlett Asymmetrical Tower
Aqua Blue & Amber Chandelier
Float Boat & Carnival Boat
Blue Polyvitro Crystals
The other part of the attraction was that I love taking pictures of my family. I know... I'm sure this shocks everyone. So if we are going to take pictures, I'd rather take pictures of everyone in a beautiful setting.
So if anyone is around the Dallas area looking for something to do and is willing to brave the heat and do a bit of walking, visit the Dallas Arboretum, especially while Dale Chihuly's work is on display if possible.
