Dallas Arboretum

On Daniel day off we decided to head out to the Dallas Arboretum! We had never been and I had heard that all of their tulips were in bloom. A must see! Boy was it ever. I took soooo many pictures! The weather was nice, especially once storms started blowing in and brought a cool breeze. Coen had so much fun running everywhere! Take a look at what we saw!

This was just the entrance! Also, the best picture I would get of Coen all day.
I just LOVED this orangy tulip. So pretty!
According to the information desk there were over 500,000 blooms. I would have guessed millions.
 Awwww, MOM!
They had this thing going on called Fairy Tale Castles. This one is from The Little Mermaid.
Here's Coen sitting in King Triton's throne.
Jack and the Bean Stalk. The castle is on top of the bean stalk. I kind of cropped it off. Sorry.
This one is from something called Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters. I dunno...

:) My guys!!
Coen LOVED all of the fountains!
 Beauty and the Beast.
The goodness!
The Princess and the Pea.
Coen couldn't feel the pea. ;)
Peeking into the Poetry Garden.
 There was a little Texas Frontier area that was really neat. Here's Dan and Coen in a sod house. It was pretty cool!
Tee-pee! You can see the storms blowing in...
Of course a covered wagon!
I have never seen these in person! Have you?
The Big "D"!
