dallas getaway pt 2

We took our time getting up and ready the next morning. We didn't leave our hotel until almost noon!  In spirit of it being General Conference we wanted to go walk the temple grounds in Dallas. We found it, only to find the gates were closed! Which kind of shocked us, walking the temple grounds as a kid was something I did often on Sundays. But we took pictures anyways!

After, we went to the Texas Discovery Gardens to go to a Butterfly House. It was the funniest, saddest experience I've ever watched Kyson go through. hahaha
Kyson is all about the biggest, fastest roller coasters but when it comes to butterflies, he craps his pants!

Ok so maybe I was a little afraid of the pretty butterflies too. They really liked dive bombing my face! Dave and I were laughing the entire time walking through this because either I was freaking out or Kyson was. It was hilarious! Once we were finished torturing Kyson with killer butterflies we were hungry for some good food! The Cheesecake Factory!

Lemon Herb Chicken + Butterfinger, Caramel, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, Chocolate Cheesecake = Heaven on Earth!! It made baby very happy! 
We decided it was time to go home and get back to real life. It was the best weekend with good friends, fun times and great food. Just what the doctor ordered! Can't wait to go back.

P.S Happy Birthday to my amazing hubby! 26 looks good on you :)

  7. I'm absolutely terrified of moths - partially because they dive bomb your face! I guess butterflies are just pretty moths in disguise. I completely understand how they'd freak you out!

  8. I really want to visit Dallas! It would be so fun to take Nolan to a butterfly house.
    Mmmm Cheesecake Factory.
