Anniversary Picnic

Matt and I celebrated our anniversary last weekend.  We are always up for heading downtown for an event or play so when I got an invite to the Nasher ’til Midnight outdoor picnic and movie, I knew we should go.  And of course, Matt agreed!  We have always loved going for picnics at Shakespeare in the Park so I was hoping this event would be similar.  It was even better!  So fun!  I should mention… It was a romantic evening out…

But Cady has been gone for most of the summer… and we kinda missed her and she was about to leave for church camp… so she came with us! ha!

I seriously LOL when I look at that pic.  She also had a blast, she said so multiple times and even snapchatted some pics to friends telling them how cool the whole place was.

We pre-ordered a picnic basket catered by Wolfgang Puck’s café.  It was yummy.  Fried chicken, garlic creamy mashed potatoes, a veggie tray, a side salad and rolls with honey butter and sticky buns for dessert.  On the veggie tray were some TINY pickles… lol – obvi I had to take a pic.

There were a couple bands that played for the first 2 hours we were there.  We ate and then walked around the grounds and even strolled thru the museum for a bit (the Nasher is a sculpture museum.)

Matt in the Phyllida Barlow "tryst" exhibit.  It's experiential art - you felt like you were in a funhouse with lots of mirrors but you weren't.  Creepy.

Once the band finished up, the movie started.  “Big Eyes” was the perfect “art” movie to show at this event.
