A couple weekends ago Kevin headed out of town for a golf weekend, so I had a little mini girls weekend (with our kids as special guests of course).
Mary Kathryn and Ashley made the trip up to Dallas with a car full of kiddos! They arrived mid-afternoon and we basically just let the kids run wild in the backyard while we were able to do a little catching up.
Kevin gave me a quick tutorial on his grill before he left and I successfully grilled my first dinner! Afterwards these two needed a bath...so they hopped in together. Brooks sat like this the whole time...it was quite impressive and just made me giggle.
Saturday morning we got up and headed to the Children's Garden at the Arboretum. The kids had a blast playing in all the water features...probably should have brought swimsuits! oops!
After playing for a bit we headed to the little cafe to have some lunch.
It wasn't very crowded at all and the weather was awesome - which obviously made for a great day!
After lunch we hit a few more of the outdoor exhibits.
Ryan and Caroline wanted to try the tornado wind tunnel. I know they don't look thrilled in this pic but I swear they really wanted to do this...
A little worried...
They loved it...and wanted to go again but the line was getting long so we moved on.
The kiddos loved the Energy section...lots of water to play with!
And one last picture...before they all fell apart. Well, before Brooks face-planted :( Poor little guy Luckily he was ok...just scared him...and mommy and her friends.
After our fulfilled morning with the kiddos we put the little ones down for naps and the let the big kids burn some more energy out back. Now it was "Mommy time" - sitters came at 1pm and we escaped to the spa. We all got much needed massages, then hung out poolside for an hour before showering up and getting ready for dinner.
One more quick stop before dinner...Dry Bar! Who doesn't love a blow out?
After we finished with our hair we headed out to dinner at Eddie V's. It was delicious and we had so much fun conversing without interruptions...We were all pretty exhausted so we headed home for bed afterwards. Such a fun day with these girls!
Sunday morning we got some playing in before they had to get back to Houston. Kevin made it back in time to see everyone and brought the kiddos donuts! Yum Yum!
Such a fun weekend...love these kids and their mommies so much!
