As I mentioned, last week Matt & me both finished our last obligations of the Fall 2013 semester so this weekend we decided to not do anything productive and explore the DFW area. On Saturday we took advantage of couple of Groupons we purchased and planned on visiting both the Dallas Museum of Biblical Art and the Dallas Arboretum.
First we worked out and grabbed lunch at a new-to-us burger place, Hopdoddy Burger Bar. He got a burger and I got a salad (with a burger patty on it) and they were both delicious! We didn't order one, but the milkshakes we saw others enjoying certainly looked tasty.
|Yes Mom, I did steal some of his fries. They were delicious|
Next we decided to be crazy and head to the Arboretum. We don't go into downtown Dallas that often so since we were there, we decided to brave the cold, cold winds (felt like it was in the lower 30s). Besides being quite chilly, we really enjoyed it and will definitely be going back when the weather heats up! They decorated an old mansion, the DeGolyer House, with all sorts of Christmas decorations and we had fun walking through it.
|A real reindeer!|

|We may have been a bit unprepared for the wind chill...|
|We decided we would take this study. It's just|
missing my sliding ladder...
|The DeGolyers were famous socialites and had received |
an invite to go to the reception after
|Looked right out over White Rock Lake. We can't wait|
to go again and explore some more!
And that was our busy Saturday! Next- our Sunday activities...
What did you do this weekend?
