Dallas Arboretum

We had the best day today! We got up early and went to the Dallas Arboretum. It's on the shore of White Rock Lake in Dallas.

I took so many pictures - over 300! I won't bore you with all of them, but here's just a few. Ok, maybe a lot.

I liked this picture because of the title of my blog, kiss that frog. Bailey's friend (and one of my Girl Scouts) Tiffany, took the picture.

Here's Bailey and Tiffany.

And Bailey

And Tiffany - she cracks me up.

Here's Bailey and Rominal

I love getting pictures of them holding hands when they don't know I'm looking.

Here's Tiffany

And Rominal

Oh, and me.

I should say that these pictures are all straight out of the camera pictures. I haven't done a thing to them. Mostly because I am just too lazy, but also because this afternoon when we got back we had to do a Girl Scout cookie booth, so I haven't had much time at home today.

Here's the girls at the top of a hill, looking oh so cute.

And here they are rolling down the hill. They had the best time, and they rolled down this hill at least three times.

Who says you have to act your age?

I tried to get them to imitate this statue, but they wouldn't do it.

I need to remember to not wear my sunglasses anytime I'm going to have my picture taken, they left funny marks on the sides of my nose.

I love this sculpture. Makes me smile.

The grounds were so beautiful.

We had such a great day - beautiful weather and beautiful flowers.

beautiful! We are going Monday with our playgroup...can't wait! Also, meant to ask you what kind of camera are you shooting with. Your pictures have been great!

Wendy said...

Thanks Laurie! For Christmas I got a Nikon D5000. When I was taking pictures on Saturday, I switched to a different lens, a telephoto one (not sure what it is - I'm still learning) and it seemed to make a big difference in the pictures.

I should correct my comment - I do know what a telephoto lens is, I just don't know the name/number of it right now. That's what I meant to say. :-)

What a beautiful day captured so well! The tulips are lovely and the photo of Rominal and Bailey walking arm in arm is the sweetest. AND the photo of you and Bailey together? You look like Sisters not Mother and Daughter! Go Wendy!
