Honeymoon: Dallas Leg of the Tour

We stayed in Dallas for our first 2 nights after we got married.

Saturday after the wedding we headed downtown to the Adolphus Hotel.  It is a historic hotel and we stayed on the 22 floor with a great view of some of the downtown buildings.  The room we stayed in was gorgeous and it was a fun experience, staying somewhere neither of us had been.

Sunday we headed back to our apartment (kinda weird, that it's now ours instead of just his!) to pack up a little.  We both took naps before heading to the Gaylord for Sunday night.

Right after we got engaged we had talked about how fun it could be to stay the Gaylord after we got married.  There was some convention there where it was booked through the 20th, so when I saw there were no rooms available I just put it out of my mind.  David's mom ended up calling and getting us a room for Sunday night and it was such a great experience for us.

 This is kinda what the Gaylord looks like (Lego style!)

 We had dinner at the Cantina which is in the Riverwalk section.  Complete with queso, fajitas, tableside guacamole and yummy margaritas!  Definitely one of the best meals of the week

One of the things we thought was kinda funny was that when the guy brought our bags to our room, he said "if you need anything just press that smiley face."  Sure enough on the phone there is a smiley face button labeled "consider it done"  Definitely a Gaylord-touch!

Monday morning we got up early and headed to the airport for Jamaica!
