Celebration Dallas Style

Today My Love & I are celebrating our anniversary! This pic is 15 years ago when we first started dating compared to today, our 9 year marriage anniversary, having breakfast at Cafe Brazil :) Which apparently is where we went to breakfast last year as well! 
Then we went to the Nasher Sculpture Center.
This is the first sculpture the Nashers collected :)
Life imitates art!
I wonder how Picasso would feel about selfies? ;)
Then we walked across the street to the Trammel & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art, which was open this time. We walked around the courtyard on our Art Walk for our 6 year Anniversary :)
They have an exhibit of wooden Tibetan book covers. They are beautiful and a great piece of literary history!
This is essentially a book spine, this is the side you would see on the shelf, and the carvings tell you which book it is.
They were so intricate!
My Love had to ring the bell!
Our next stop was Maple & Motor.
Someone is getting a little impatient with my obsessive picture taking ;) We shared the cheese fries with bacon and jalapenos, they were not skimpy on the toppings! My Love got a bacon cheddar burger with a fried egg and grilled jalapenos and onions. I got a bacon pepperjack burger with chili, grilled jalapenos, and onions. They were both great burgers, but we agreed we would skip the bacon next time. It was not crisp enough to be on a burger, so one bite and the whole piece tried to come out.
Of course, because today was a celebration, we had to get dessert on our way home! :) We did a Google search for ice cream and found Carnival Barker's.
There is no indoor seating, you order at the window, and eat at this very cool street sign table :) I got Nutella ice cream, which was creamy and chocolately! My Love got an Old Fashioned Vanilla Malt, it was heavy on the malt and delicious!
Happy 9 year anniversary My Love! This year has been quite the year, but together with God we can do this! Thank you for a wonderful day, and a wonderful life together! I love you!
