had breakfast at hotel
packed up and checked out
drove to Northpark Center and walked around
had (the acclaimed) brunch at Blue Mesa Grill (****1/2 out of *****, it was fabulous)
returned our rental car and passed the rest of the afternoon at the airport
flew home where some sweet friends picked us up
hugged and kissed our kids a bunch (though Markus was a bit tentative around us at first!)
Cool floral arrangement in the lobby of our hotel (blurry)
Most of the containers at Northpark held cacti, which is not common in malls around here!
Crowded Blue Mesa. The brunch is so popular you usually have to wait awhile to get in.
Again, not the typical Minnesotan brunch – it was Tex-Mex fare. But oh so good! And the first meal of the trip that we didn’t split. 🙂
Apparently all-you-can-drink mimosas are a big deal in Dallas. I was able to finish one, and that was enough.
Cool dude at the airport. 🙂
I ran around in that thing pictured behind Husband on Anja’s behalf. It made music. I took this picture for her as well (creeeepy!).
That’s that! Our Dallas trip. Have you gone anyplace lately?
