Saturday we went on an adventure here in Dallas and decided to check out the Chinese New Year celebrations held by the Crow Collection of Asian Art in downtown. This beautiful museum specializes in Asian art and always has a family friendly vibe with special events and festivals like this one. I had read about the Chinese New Year Celebration and mentioned it to Chris but wasn't sure if we would go. I'm great at finding cool things to do but then when the weekend comes staying home in my pajamas. So when Chris said he would put aside his other weekend errands so we could go, I was in!
The Crow Collection is downtown near the other two big museums here, the DMA and the Nasher, which means it's in walking distance from Kylde Warren Park. You can easily take public transportation but we went for parking in the DMA garage as we had to be somewhere right after. Kylde Warren always has a lot of food trucks and Saturday they had an entire block full of them! We tried out Ssahm Korean BBQ and it was delicious. This was the only part of the day where the kids were cranky, I should have packed a picnic so they wouldn't have to wait!, but after they ate quesadillas and kimchee fries they were good to go.
Harper begged to get her face painted so Chris and Charlie went exploring while we waited in a line for 45 minutes. I have to say, totally worth it. She was great in line, just dancing to the music, and this butterfly (with sparkles!) made her day.
Here's the link to upcoming events at the Crow, they have some cool things planned for Spring Break.
