Spring Break and Catching Up

I’m FINALLY blogging all our fun from the past two weeks!!  Way behind!!

Last Sunday morning before church, I caught these two being super sweet!

Monday (of Spring Break) we met some friends at the park.  The weather was PERFECT!!

This kid thinks he is big and can do anything a big kid can do.  Not quite yet, B!

Monkeys climbing at the park.  🙂

Tuesday afternoon, Smith came over for a sleepover with Nix.  The boys practiced t-ball and played until it was time to take baths (and eat brownies).

See??  He thinks he’s big!!

 Tab and Andrew would get behind the net and make crazy faces.

I think it helped!

Wednesday morning, we were all up and hit the gym bright and early!  Still waiting for GAP’s Marketing team to give me a call.  😉

We hit up McDonald’s with friends and then Nix went to Carter’s house for a playdate.

Thursday, Shay and I let the kiddos swim in the heated pool at the gym.  It was cool outside, so we didn’t really think they’d last that long.  An hour and a half later (shocker) they were asking to get out to eat lunch!

The girlies being silly!  They were cold once they got out, but they had a blast swimming in March!

Friday…Tab took off work so we hit up a park in Frisco and then ran some errands.

This park is AMAZING!!!

The park has a special “toddler” area….B was in his element!! haha!

Way cooler than the rusty merry-go-rounds we had, huh??

We went out for a yummy brunch and then stopped by the PGA store.

E worked on her swing.

And…N worked on his putting.

Saturday morning we headed to the Perot Museum in Dallas.  It was our very first time.  We had a FABULOUS time!!
 Don’t they look like newbies in those hats?

Our first stop was the Children’s Museum.

Tab tried to teach them a thing or two.

Nixon had a ball running from area to area checking it all out.

Bowen played in this little play thing for all of two seconds, before he found this….

The water area…(Isn’t Ebby Lee going to love the fact that she would NOT take off that hat??  haha!)

Bowen LOVED this!  He was barely tall enough to reach the water, but don’t worry…he managed quite well.  When we left, his shirt and pants were soaked!!

 Whose big kid is this???

 Nixon and Ebby Lee got busy painting masterpieces.

Nixon was all about “working” in this area.

Homeboy was STILL at the water table.  

 Then we went to the “Sports Hall”.  E practiced her tennis swing again.

They recorded her and we got to watch in slow motion.

Had a BLAST with these two!

This kiddo is a MESS!  But we had SO much fun and can’t wait to go back!!

Tuesday, Miss E got her hair trimmed.

Mrs. Jessica did a FABULOUS job!!

We’ve been enjoying lots of walks around our new neighborhood.

 This past Friday we headed to the Dallas Zoo with lots of friends! (It was a little sunny.)

 So many friends joined us for the day!!!

I bribed this boy with lots of snacks so he’d happily sit in the stroller.  Not sure what his pose was all about??

Nixon’s wasn’t feeling well (allergies) so he was seriously laid-back ALL day!  He watched from the strollers unless he thought it’d be super interesting to see.  🙂

 B LOVED the play area!

Great day hanging with these kiddos and their mamas!!  I am BLESSED beyond measure with GREAT girlfriends!!

 Loaded up and headed home….what a GREAT day!

Yesterday before church (we were waiting for Nix) these two…

Oh my goodness!  Brother/Sisterly Love!

Hope you’ve had a GREAT weekend!!
