While in downtown Dallas we decided to find the giant 19-feet high 53-feet wide Dirk Nowitzki mural. After a crazy GPS enabled drive, we finally found it.
Zebadiah is quite small compared to the mural, as you can see, but he really likes Dirk. I think it is quite curious because you would think a rubber duck would follow anyone, much less a Dallas Mavericks legend.
Well the project is halfway over and Zebadiah has had fun. Today he gets to take another little road trip to Downtown Dallas Texas to see the Dallas Skyline from the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. Unfortunately it was raining like crazy. At one point we couldn’t even see the road.
Zeb doesn’t mind the rain. He says “It’s like water off my back!” My camera and me think otherwise. He wanted to go farther to see the Trinity River, but we turned around and headed back to the truck eventually home.
Maybe someday when the weather is better, we will go back.
Even though Zebadiah likes food, he obviously can’t cook. This Cast Iron Skillet Apple Blueberry Pie looks really good to a rubber duck, but of course he can’t eat it. We make sure he is in the other room before we eat this right out of the oven with a big scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream melting all over it.
Today Zebadiah got to take a little road trip to Richardson. It’s is a little road trip because you can’t tell where Plano ends and Richardson begins. Nonetheless it is a few miles from our house.
Zebadiah, being a native Texan, wanted to see some Bluebonnets. This little road trip will have to suffice for now. There is a pasture that is filled with wildflowers, and the National Flower of Texas is the main attraction.
There are people all around taking pictures so you can imagine how Zeb feels. He’s is still kind of shy around other people.
Zebadiah likes flowers and always takes time to stop and smell. He says they are “smiles from heaven”. The yellow flowers remind him of some of his little yellow relatives that he misses and hopes to see someday.
Zeb would like to see the fields of bluebonnets, but will have to wait till the weather is better. Maybe next weekend when he takes his first trip to the Texas Hill Country.
Growing up in the city has some advantages. You can drive almost any direction to find good places to eat, and shop. Sometimes this is a disadvantage because its easy to go a little overboard with spending, especially if you are on a tight budget.
The only time Zebadiah has been this high in the air is when his family migrated to Texas. He was too young to remember how they actually got here. Zeb wanted to see for himself the roadwork that is the backbone of the city.
Although the amount of traffic is very low this morning, He thinks he will stay closer to the creeks and ponds. Why would a duck need to be on the highway anyway?
