The temperatures in Dallas on Friday, 4/24/17 was 86 degrees but the ice was nice at the Dallas Galleria. Shoppers were mingling, people were taking brisk walks, some folks were sitting at cafe tables on the main floor; others like myself were hanging over the balcony watching skaters skate fearlessly!

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts!"
-- Winston Churchill

Children are great teachers. When a child learns to overcome their fears successfully they grow up to be stronger individuals focused on problem solving. Dallas-Fort Worth offers many learning opportunities. The mall at the Dallas Gallery isn't just for shoppers, it's an educational experience for people of all ages.
