Visions of the Dallas Arboretum first began in the early 1930s,
but it took nearly six decades before their gates opened.
Every year, for the last 10 years,
we have said that would be the year we would get around to going.
It took us awhile, but last year was finally that year.
In October, when our nephew and his little family came for a visit,
we decided that it would be the perfect time to go to
the Dallas Arboretum, as the Chihuly exhibit was going on.
We arrived just at dusk, so as we walked about the grounds and the sun went down
the sculptures were lit up and glowed beautifully.
It was really cool.
Even the youngest of our party,
the seven month old,
The gardens themselves were gorgeous
and we will definitely be visiting several times a year from here on out.
I'm really looking forward to spring and Dallas Blooms,
as well as, going for a few concerts throughout
spring and summer.
Good times just waiting to be had.
