Five for Friday: Lakes, Fun, and A Runaway Pup
Has it really been another week already?
Summer is flying by! Thankfully I’m making the most of it – lots of fun but also some work here and there.
I’m linking up with DoodleBugsTeaching for a Five for Friday post!
Last night we headed out to the Dallas Arboretum for their Cool Thursdays summer concert series. The band last night was a Beatles cover band. It’s such a nice, relaxing time! The mister got several sets from his boss, but we are considering buying a season pass. We love it that much!
There are normally food trucks out there, but we like to take our own bag with food and of course wine.
