Dallas Arboretum {Visit with Bonnie,Jarrett, & Vinny}

This past weekend my sister, Bonnie, and her boyfriend Vinny....along with my little red-headed nephew Jarrett headed up to Texas for a visit.  We had a great time with them.  I wish we had more than just a day....but we made the most of it!  The boys had such a great time playing together and running all around the house. 

Saturday we woke up early and headed to the Dallas Arboretum.  I've always wanted to go because it seemed like such a pretty place and it did not disappoint.  The Chihuly exhibit was AMAZING!  It's all these hand blown glass sculptures and pieces of magnificent artwork.  I think it would be awesome to see that at night too.  If you are ever in the Dallas area this would be a great place to check out!

*WARNING*

Picture overload ahead!!!!!

We got some cutie pie pics of our boys together....let me just say it isn't the easiest thing to get two 2 year olds to look and smile at the same time!

I love all of these pictures! I'm always slightly jealous of my Texas friends who get to regularly visit the Dallas arboretum. It's always SO beautiful there!
