Today's Friday Favorites are brought to you by the letter F.
Despite throwing up repeatedly and spiking a fever while enjoying Family Fun day, Tuesday was one of my absolute FAVORITE days of the week!
We headed to the Perot Museum bright and early and the kids immediately started exploring :)
(Let me clarify for the anonymous commenter who chose to use some really colorful language - hence why I'm not publishing their comment - I didn't go to the museum knowing I was sick and trying to infect everybody. I felt kind of blah in the monring when I woke up, but didn't think too much of it. We drove the 45 minutes there. Arrived, played and THEN it hit me. At this point, I figured I'd stick it out. Because we were there and because it was already after 11 and we were leaving the museum at 12. Because the kids were having a great time. Etc. Germs are everywhere. Stuff happens. I sanitized my hands, like an adult, and moved on.)
After the museum, we booked it to Klyde Warren park (a really cool park built on top of an old overpass downtown Dallas) for our scheduled picnic/food truck lunch.
Real men push strollers full of children :) hahaha
This stroller always cracks me up because it was one of the items that was loaded in my van and ready to consign on the morning I took my pregnancy test with Griffin. SOOOO grateful that I took that test and didn't sell this bad boy, because it's the best ;)
We got there right as this building for kids event was ending - but you better believe we'll be back next time right at the beginning! They had a great time helping clean up :)
My brother, Uncle Mark, works as an architect in Dallas and he met us at the park. He and I sat, chatted, and looked for discrete places for me to potentially lose it again while Dave found some lunch for himself and my lunch of choice - Sprite.
I was determined to stick it out, so after lunch we headed to the kids area of the park to let the kiddos run around.
Don't we look excited?!?!?! This was right after Dave told me we were packing up since me laying on the bench was "looking weird" :)
This is pretty much where my memory of Tuesday stops. I fell asleep in the car and really didn't wake up until 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday. For reals. Dave took the kids to dinner at his Grandma's house Tuesday night, then got all the kiddos in bed, up the next morning and to Kid's Klub at the country club. They hung out there until around 1:00 when he brought them home, put GG down for a nap and the boys played in the family room while I dozed. It was rough. Wednesday night I started feeling human again and was thankful for some sweet family movie time with my crazies.
Then it was time for FOOD! Homemade apple pie, while drinking hot tea and eating a cinnamon roll. Back to normal!!!
We'll just forget about how our garage refrigerator stopped working and we lost everything in it AND our garbage disposal decided to burn the motor out and stink. Minor details :)
I loved seeing everyone's cozy, peaceful "Happy Thanksgiving Morning we're watching the parade and birds are chirping in the background" pics all over social media - BUT the scene at my house was a little different and all I could do was laugh. Dave went in to work before 9 a.m and worked until 4 p.m. which means it's all me to do dinner with three kiddos under foot. #awesome
This pretty much summed up my morning. ;) Thankfully the boys played outside FOR EVER and Griffin took a great nap. Amen.
I wore pretty much leggings, a tank and an apron all day, but G rocked some AWESOME and festive attire. Girl clothes are my FAVORITE!
When Dave got home he scooped up the boys (yes, wearing hats) and headed to the grocery store to pick up a couple of last minute things...
... and say Happy Thanksgiving to one of our very favorite baristas. Yes - we're on a first name basis with our baristas. We color them pictures and have Christmas gifts for them :)
One of my least FAVORITE parts of Thanksgiving is setting the table. I never have a plan beforehand (maybe that's the problem) and always feel like it's not my "thing". This year, I didn't think my placemats or chargers really "went" with the table, so I drew some on. hahaha #classy
We ate, laughed, watched Luke perform a few songs on the hearth and played some SERIOUS UNO. It was FABULOUS!
Food and Family are my total favorites - this week and really every week.
