One of the best people in the entire world had a baby shower (she's about to have her first little girl!) last weekend in College Station, so I knew we couldn't miss it! Instead of just going down for the shower and back, we decided to make a trip of it! So, we left a few days ahead of time and made the 10 hour trek, stopping in Dallas/Fort Worth for a few days of seeing friends and family and having fun . We never get to see everyone we want to see on trips like these (where so many of our friends and family are gathered in the same place), but there's always a next time!
Here's a few highlights (dumbo me left my camera at the hotel for a lot of the fun!)...
*We saw a friend of mine who has been in the hospital for a good two months on bed rest (bless her)!
*We saw my cousin who just got engaged and ate at the amazing Coal Vines in Dallas.
*We toured the Dallas World Aquarium. It was perfect for the kids, and they were so anxious to find the sharks they basically ran past everything else...except Nemo :)
*We saw one of my best friends from college, and I finally met her little girl and her sweet Emma Grace (in utero)!
*I introduced the boys to my favorite dessert...
*We spent a couple of hours with my Adopt-an-Aggie grandparents from college.
Was it tiring? Yes. Did I probably not plan as well as I should have? Of course. Would we do it all over again? In a heart beat.
It was such a great time, even if crazy and fast-paced. Now we're back and settling into normal...trick-or-treating up next!
