So the whole reason I came to this dreadfully boring city in the first place was to meet my girlfriend Lacey and lend her my truck for a completely unrelated trip she wanted to make. We spent plenty of time together this weekend, including visiting a bunch of her childhood hangouts, and the very elaborate Dallas aquarium.

It's a very elaborate aquarium, with a whole mini zoo section to boot. It's all designed like you're walking through the jungle, and all the birds fly free, so you can get right up beside them.

They had a shark tank and some neat jellyfish and stuff, and it was pretty fun to see.
