The Gaylord Texan

I spent yesterday with my sister again taking the last of my nieces pictures.We had to go somewhere indoors since it was so hot outside and decided to go to the Gaylord Texan Hotel.It's always a fun place to go during the summer.Even if you're not staying at the hotel you can go just to walk around and enjoy the scene.They have several different entertainers like balloon artists,face painting,musicians and stilt walkers.Inside they have pretty indoor gardens,restaurants and a train exhibit.This is the inside of the hotel.Here's Sara getting her balloon animal.

My niece picked a butterfly hat.Can you tell she loved it?I don't think the little girl behind her did.
This cute little monkey(his name is miki) was there too,taking pictures and doing shows.
He's jumping through the ring of fire! Ha!

After the show,the kids got to take pictures with him.Well today I'll do the rest of my back to school shopping for the kids and Saturday,we plan on packing a pic nic lunch and taking the kids to the Dallas Arboretum.Right now the tickets are only $1 through the month of August.Regular price is almost $10!
Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

Wow, that hotel looks wonderful. Looks like you all had a fun time with the balloons and that monkey is super cute. What a great deal on the Dallas Arboretum.
I hope you enjoy your shopping and have a great rest of the weekend.
