Last weekend Andy, JJ and I took a little road trip to Dallas. The big draw was the Detroit Tigers vs Texas Rangers baseball game on Saturday night. JJ did really well in the car (the drive is a little over 3 hours).
We enjoyed a pre-game dinner at a bbq restaurant Andy had scouted out called Smoke. Yum-my!
Yes, all this food was for 2 people. No, we didn't eat it all (but came pretty close). And how cute is the piggy plate?!
JJ's interest in the baseball game was mixed. We made it until the 8th inning before he started showing signs of a complete meltdown. Luckily, the Tigers had it in the bag by then so we made an early getaway and beat the traffic.
It was fortunate we left when we did because J had a conniption fit on the way back to the hotel. He eventually settled down and luxuriated in the Sheraton's fine linens.
On Sunday, we took our first family trip to the zoo! The Dallas Zoo was just so-so I'd have to say, and JJ slept through a lot of it, but it was still a nice little adventure for us. We saw some penguins...
...and some turtles...
We finished off the weekend with dinner at Olive Garden since it was April 25th : 10 years exactly since our first date at Olive Garden on 4/25/00 in Jackson, Michigan :)
On that first date, neither of us ever imagined that 10 years later we'd be married, living in Texas, and toting a 2.5-month-old along to our date-iversary!!
