Thursday of last week we picked up one of Luke's friends, Trae, and headed down to the Perot Museum.
Griffin LOVES her some big boys :)
So much so that she levitates :) hahaha
Trae hadn't been before and my boys were excited to show him the ropes. First up, the Children's Museum...
and of course the water table :)
Mason LOVED the art lab (no surprise!) and I love how creative he was! He turned the little ice cream spoon into a guy who was holding stamps from other countries. No clue where he got all of that!
We walked through the human body section (with lots of boy giggles)....
and then made a beeline for the engineering/robotics area...
It may have been because it was Spring Break, but they had lots of robots working and available which was awesome.
We checked out some cartesian divers...
... and the boys worked on a bridge.
... and then we headed up to see the dinosaurs. This is where it started to get REALLY crowded.
Not sure it gets more #momlife than this! hahaha
The boys hit up the gift shop, so Griffin and I hung out outside and watched the pigeons :)
(Read about her stroller HERE)
Snuggles!!! I can't remember whether this was in the morning or after a nap. Either way - perfection.
Thursday afternoon the sun started peeking out and so we hopped in a golf cart to cruise and soak it in. The temperature kept dropping though and there was only about 20 minutes of sunshine, but we made the most of it :)
We played a TON of Rummikub and Mason is totally getting it now which is so fun.
Griffin takes about as long to pick her color as it takes to actually paint her toes :)
Friday night Luke went over to Trae's house with Lincoln...
... and they went and ate Hibachi...
... went to pole position...
... and then went to iCream. It was pretty much the greatest day of his life :)
And it was pretty much the greatest day of mine because I had time to shower, blow dry and actually fix my hair. WIN!!!
It was Dave's last night off work and so he and I headed to Harvest because I pretty much think about their deviled eggs continuously. Seriously. I don't think they have any mustard in them (maybe?!?!) and they have this amazing jelly and candied pecan on top that is to die for.
So much so that I took two pictures of them. #sorrynotsorry
We had pork enchiladas and wagu shortribs with polenta - it was heaven. It's a farm to table restaurant and everything is super fresh and locally grown.
And look how cute the atmosphere is! I was a little picture happy because it was freaking Friday night and we were out. hahaha Dave has been in the service industry for 15+ years and so Friday nights out are few and VERY far between.
We were stuffed, but managed to find room on the way home for an oreo blast ;)
Saturday morning we had one last hurrah - breakfast at The Ranch.
Apparently I forgot to brush their hair before we went :)
Dave went into work on Saturday and the kids and I spent the afternoon/evening cleaning and organizing a weeks worth of being at home.
It was a FANTASTIC week as a family and I put together a little video of it for memories sake. The kids have asked to watch it at least a dozen times and I love that we'll have it to look back on.
Happy Tuesday, Friends!!!
