This summer the Dallas Arboretum has an Alice in Wonderland exhibit that is just beautiful. On Fridays, they have characters there that you can meet as well. We headed down on Friday morning to take advantage of the beautiful weather. The first thing we did was meet Alice.
That aside, the exhibits were amazing. There was a tea party,
and a Rabbit Hole,
Which of course my girls had to go down.
We also saw the caterpillar
And enjoyed story time with Alice. She read her story, of course.
There was also an explorers exhibit that was interactive for the kids with pyramid slides,
Lewis and Clark's Tee-pee
As the day got warmer, Kirsten got tired, so Katie pushed her around in the stroller.
After the Arboretum, we headed over to the Dallas Temple. Katie asks almost daily to go to the Temple, so I finally made time to get her there.
I love it when my girls get along. They are the best of friends (sometimes)
We spent some time by the fountains,
Which Katie now refers to as "Temple Water"here.
We decided to have lunch at this little Italian place next to the bookstore. It was so good, run by an older gentleman and his wife. We were the only ones there! Kirsten and Katie thought it was great to have a restaurant all to ourselves.
Luckily Katie took a nap in the car on the way home so that we could be ready for family movie night when daddy got home.
