After dinner, we tried to find this jazz club that was suggested to us, cause it sounded swell, but we got pretty turned in our dinner search and decided to head back to the hotel. We ended the night cuddled on the big bed watching Conan and the Food Network. It was glorious.
Friday morning, we slept in. Beautiful in and of itself.
We’d found this little café we wanted to try for breakfast only a few blocks away downtown. So we checked out of the hotel and headed for the café. It took us forever to find a place to park and once we made it inside, we were informed that they had no more breakfast.
Thankfully, we are resourceful people and we consulted our Garmin to find us the closest Starbucks.
It was only .3 miles away! Since we’d already paid for an hour on our meter, we decided to walk. This turned into the second fiasco of our trip! We couldn’t find it. Not even my Starbucks bloodhound-nose could sniff it out. We must have walked a mile by the time we found it. But good ole Starbucks still had coffee and muffins!
After lots of coffee, we headed to Fort Worth’s Cultural District. It was neato!
Our first stop was the Science and Natural History museum. We got to be goofy and act like kids. On the top floor, they had an exhibit about humans and genes and stuff. We took our pictures and had them modified to see what we would look like as a person of a different race. We learned about babies and biases. It was pretty cool.
After we’d poked around for a while, we went to a movie at the IMAX theatre called “Wild Ocean”. It was great. I felt like I was under ‘da sea with all the fishes, sharks, and whales.
After the SNH museum (I made that abbrev. up, but it works), we went to the Kimbell Art museum.
Let me preface this by saying that I love a good art museum. I mean, if I can see some real masterpieces, I get goose bumps.
I saw Michelangelo’s first painting ever. An original Donatello. An original Rafael. That’s 3 of the 4 Ninja Turtles! I saw several originals by Cézanne and Monet. And, the coolest thing ever, I saw an original Van Gogh. It was amazing. Van Gogh is my all time favorite artist. I have a poster of Starry Night above our bed. To see one of his paintings up close was thrilling.
Which probably makes me sound super dorky, but I don’t care.
It really was a great museum. We spent several hours there, just wandering around. It was so a highlight of the trip.
After the Kimbell, we decided to head home. We ate a delicious dinner at Outback here in Waco, so we got to come home to a clean apartment. After a full weekend, we tumbled into bed and got to sleep in till almost 11 yesterday.
So after all that, is there anyone who would disagree with me?
I think not.
I have the greatest husband in the world, who shows his love to me in fun and romantic and creative and thoughtful and outrageous ways.
I am one blessed, blessed wife.
