Road Trip!

by Amy M.

This past weekend, the kids and I travelled to Conroe to celebrate Arabella’s fourth birthday!  Joy made the trip also, and Eliza was so excited to have a sleepover with two of her very best friends!  They had a fabulous time getting manis, pedis, makeovers, and haircuts together at Sweet and Sassy Boutique.  It was adorable!

This little dude was exceptionally patient during all of the girly fun!

Goodbye for now, sweet friend!

The kids really enjoyed dancing on the catwalk/stage area!  I think Jed is ready to start learning some breakdancing moves.  We’ll start practicing.

 

Next stop–GaGa and Pappy’s house!  On Saturday morning, we attended a lovely wedding shower for Taylor, our beautiful friend who is marrying her high school sweetheart in September.  We always love visiting with dear friends!

Two of my favorite ladies in the whole world!

After the shower, GaGa and Pappy took us on an adventure to see Dinosaurs Unleashed at Ford Park.  I thought the kids would be scared of the animatronics, but they loved it!  So much fun!

We are the dinosaurs!

 

It was a fantastic trip!  Also a milestone–my first time driving the kids myself.  They were easy and well-behaved, thank goodness.  We hit Houston at the worst possible time (5:00pm on Thursday), so it took a LONG time to get to Conroe, but my little passengers were ever so patient.  Yay!
