Mom and Ben Come to Texas
The next day we ventured out to the Dallas Arboretum. With their "Spring Blooms" display currently taking place, it was CROWDED - and no wonder! Everybody wanted to take advantage of the absolutely gorgeous weather and all the beautiful tulips, daffodils, azaleas, and other flowers that were literally everywhere you turned. We took a picnic lunch and enjoyed sitting out in the breeze and walking around the park, taking pics and marveling at God's creativity. It was a great day.
On their last night in town, we (along with most everyone else in the metroplex, it seems!) decided to go play Putt-Putt. I wasn't sure Mom's back would handle it, but she seemed to enjoy herself during our 18 holes. I scored 5 holes-in-one, which is completely NOT normal and took me quite by surprise. Again, the weather was amazing and we loved being outside and enjoying one another's company.What else did we do while they were here? Well, like always, Mom and I did some shopping - Kohls, Ross, TJ Maxx, Home Depot, and all the Sam Moon stores. Mom looked at most of my scrapbooks that I've completed since the last time she visited - that was fun! We planted my flowers and tomato plant, talked a lot, and of course, played with Brodie. Mom was so excited to see her "grand-dog" again, and he quickly wrapped his Gammie around his little finger. She even made him gravy to put on his food - the dog is now so spoiled I don't know what to do with him! :)
It was a really great visit, and I'm so glad Mom and Ben came out to Texas, finally!
