On May 31st, Neal and I celebrated 6 years of marriage and thanks to his sister Rachel we actually got nearly 24 hours to ourselves.  I am a bit late in posting the details but it seems that with the end of school I got sidetracked.  Anyways, Neal and I dropped the kids off that afternoon then headed into Dallas.  We stayed at a cute old hotel downtown.  Here is a picture of the room as you are walking in…DSC_0002-7

We had tickets to the Paramore and No Doubt concert that night.   Before we headed to the concert we went to Twisted Root Burger Co. a few miles from our hotel.  It was featured on the Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.  Both Neal and I love that show and were really looking forward to checking it out.  It was both our vote for best burger ever!  They even have homemade root beer which was great too.  After dinner we headed to the concert- it was amazing!  Both Paramore and No Doubt were great and the weather was gorgeous.  I saw No Doubt back in high school when they were opening for Bush and this was just as much fun.  Gwen was so great to watch.  Here are a couple of pics from the show…3596021325_76de29a9213593311727_972506b99d60-no_doubt.embedded.prod_affiliate.117The next morning we got to sleep in then we headed to brunch at the Blue Mesa Grill.  Another great meal!  It was an interesting mix of traditional breakfast/brunch fare along with some southwestern/Mexican favorites.  My favorite part…unlimited mimosas!!  Overall we had a fantastic anniversary and hopefully we will be able to get away again next year.
